"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"

Report to Appointors 

Crown Forestry Rental Trust's latest Report to Appointors is for the year 2014-2015.


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.

The Forestry Emission Unit Trust

The Government appointed CFRT's Trustees to the Forestry Emission Unit Trust. The FEUT is responsible for applying for the New Zealand Units available for land underlying Licensed Crown Forests and distributing those Units to iwi who receive forest land as part of their Treaty settlements. For more information, see the website
