Services and Benefits


Benefits of Taxpro

The benefits of Taxpro include:
  • We are a collective organisation run by Inland Revenue Employees for Inland Revenue Employees.
  • We offer representation by people who are Inland Revenue employees and therefore understand the business and the issues on a personal level.
  • We employ a professional employment relations specialist for consultation and negotiation of workplace issues.
  • We are able to keep our subscription rates to minimum, as we only use these for paying for professional services and other direct Taxpro costs.

Subscriptions

Taxpro subscriptions are cost-effective and reasonable:
  • A discounted annual subscription payable from 1st July each year. This amount reduces monthly according to the date of joining (See Taxpro Authorisation Form)
  • We offer regular automatic fortnightly deductions from each pay, pro rated for a part-time employee.
  • We will suspend the subscriptions while a member is on any form of leave without pay for example Parental Leave.
  • We review our subscriptions each year and dependent on the capital reserves, the National Executive may increase or decrease the subscription. Taxpro intends to have a cash reserve to cover a minimum of two future years consultation and bargaining costs.
  • See your Representative for current subscription details.  These are also set out in the Authority to Act form which can be downloaded from the website.

Taxpro Representation

National Executive

Members elect our National Executive from local office representatives, seven coming from the regional areas and two specialist appointments which are set every two years.  This provides the flexibility to ensure members are represented in a way that reflects what workplace and issues of the current environment.  This gives us a 9-member board plus an appointed Taxpro representative as Secretary/Treasurer.

Members elect our National Executive for a 2-year term.

Where our National Executive needs expertise from a business unit, they will co-opt a representative or member with the skills needed for the consultation or negotiation.

Local Office Representation/Liaison
  • A Taxpro representative in your office will be available to act as an advocate for your employment situation, as needed.
  • Any location/office that does not have an elected representative will have a liaison person, who will be able to call on other Taxpro representatives within your local Service Centre area.
  • In cases of personal grievances, Taxpro provides effective supports for its members and subject to its policies and professional advice will take cases to mediation and the employment court.
  • Processing Centres, Call Centres, National Office and each Service Centre has a member on the National Executive, ensuring that we are not “top-heavy” but still cover the diverse range business units and locations.
  • We are able to address current issues quickly and effectively because of the structure of Taxpro.
  • Any member can contact a National Executive member.
  • We keep consultation and negotiating teams to 3/4 representatives to ensure we do not lose sight of the big picture among private agendas.
