Chris Hipkins will be sworn in as prime minister this morning after Jacinda Ardern formally tenders her resignation. Around the same time, Stats NZ will drop the latest inflation figures.
Hi Anna, I couldn't see how to contact Tommy de Silva on the Spinoff site, but his discussion on subsidies for E bikes is timely. He should also be advocating (and almost everyone in this country) for bikes/e-bikes to be exempt from FBT. The government make tiny amounts from FBT yet it means employers can't give employees the opportunity to purchase a bike without FBT being payable. Bike to Work schemes are standard in Europe and should be a no-brainer here in NZ.
"It’s worth making sure the chairs your employers sit in aren’t terrible" - should that be "employees"?
