Ka Rawe, excellent! Whai Rawa have now established a process with IRD to assist overseas-based whānau to obtain their IRD number even if they do not have a fully functioning NZ bank account.

Please note that entry to Whai Rawa membership will be delayed until we have received a NZ IRD number or the overseas equivalent, Australian Tax File Number.

The following link will assist you to complete the application for Whai Rawa to verify and submit the application to New Zealand’s IRD on your behalf, if you choose that option.

I understand the manner in which fees, costs and contributions may be applied to my Whai Rawa account and that the amount of those fees, costs and contributions may change, or that new fees may be imposed from time to time.

I understand and acknowledge that an investment in Whai Rawa is subject to risk, including the risk of loss of income or principal, and that no person involved in the administration and operation of Whai Rawa (including, without limitation, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Whai Rawa Fund Limited, Trustees Executors Limited and Link Market Services Limited) guarantee the performance or returns of Whai Rawa.

I have read the “Statement of Personal Information Rights” as outlined in the Whai Rawa Membership Application Guide and agree to the terms outlined in that section.

I understand that if I am opening an account for someone who is under 16 years of age and I am not a legal representative of that person, the legal representative of this person may, at any time, take over responsibility for this person’s account, should they wish to do so.

I can confirm all information provided in this form is true and correct and I agree to be bound by the terms of Whai Rawa as set out in the Product Disclosure Statement.

If I am signing this application as Account Holder on behalf of an under 16 year old beneficial member, I confirm that I am lawfully able to provide the above declarations on their behalf.

I understand that this scheme is only available to tribal members of Ngāi Tahu who are in New Zealand or Australia when they receive their offer to invest in the scheme, or to whom it would otherwise be lawful to offer membership in the scheme.

I understand that if I am becoming a Provisional Member prior to becoming a Registered Tribal Individual with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, that my membership may be terminated if I do not become a Registered Tribal Individual.

I consent to the receipt of both electronic messages and commercial electronic messages (as defined in the Unsolicited Messages Act 2007), which may also include a World Wide Web uniform resource locator, until such time as I advise Whai Rawa, to cease sending such messages.

I authorise Whai Rawa to verify my identity using electronic identity checking and to carryout due diligence on me to satisfy Whai Rawa’s obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Act 2009, or for members domiciled in Australia, the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.
