"Kia hiwa ra, kia hiwa ra
te tangi a te manu nei, kuui, kuui, kuui
tuia, tuia, tui-tuia
tuia i runga, tuia i raro, tuia i roto, tuia i waho
ka rongo te po, ka rongo te ao
i te pu korero i te wananga
puawhio-rangi, putakataka, te marama ahunuku te marama
ahurangi ka takoto koutou i te wa-o-tu
tu winiwini, tu wanawana, tu i whakaputaiana ki te whei ao
ka tu numia, ka tu rawea,
ka whakaoti nuku
ka whakaoti rangi
ko to manawa ko taku manawa, ka irihia
whano, whano, whano mai te toki
haumi ee, hui ee taiki ee"

Tax advice for claimant groups on post-settlement governance entity structures
Claimant groups invariably need advice which assists them to identify the most tax-efficient structures for entities which receive, hold and manage post-settlement assets. Ernst & Young has prepared a report which provides claimant groups with a comprehensive introduction to, and appreciation of, the tax implications and liabilities which may accompany Treaty settlement assets. The report also makes recommendations for minimising tax liabilities for such post-settlement governance entities.
