The approach to administering the taxation laws by the New Zealand Inland Revenue Department (Inland Revenue) is founded on the responsive regulation model. Pursuant to the model, Inland Revenue describes its relationship with the tax profession as collaborative or even a partnership. The model has been borrowed from the Australian initiatives. However, there is evidence that the partnership model has been very patchy in its application, both over time and depending upon the Inland Revenue operatives involved. Subjective attitudes and external influences appear to have a significant impact upon the nature of the relationship. This evidence suggests that the partnership model in both New Zealand and Australia may be appropriately viewed as dynamic, with the relationship moulded more by the environment than by managerial design.
