Zafir Khan


I am an experienced tax specialist and I advise on a range of corporate and private client matters across many industries.

I advise on the New Zealand direct and indirect tax implications of a wide range of matters including mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, employee remuneration, and property related matters. I regularly review commercial agreements and transaction documents with a focus on mitigating tax risks for clients.

I have international in-house experience which provides me with a grounding in the dynamic nature of transactions and business operations, and the need for timely and efficient advice.

Tax is a dynamic area of law and I thrive in providing clients with pragmatic and commercially holistic tax solutions. 

Recent examples of work includes advising on:

  • Advising and managing the tax risks associated with the sale of high-value commercial property. 
  • Providing technical advice regarding the interpretation of tax law.  
  • Obtaining favourable rulings from the tax authority in respect of complex transactions.
