    New Zealand officially legalizes paying employees with crypto-currency
    New Zealand issued a tax bulletin this month officially recognizing that it is legal for employers to pay employees with crypto-currencies like Bitcoin.
    The crypto-currencies just have to be able to be converted into fiat currency… which is typically the case with every major crypto.
    This is another step towards working crypto-currencies into the system, instead of killing their adoption due to ambiguity about legal issues.
    Seems like reasonably good news for the crypto world yes?

    We have bullet-proof revenue-share deals on online poker networks that:
    A) no longer allow them
    B) do not like winning poker players
    C) charge insane fees

    Interested in a sub deal?

    Where did you find that snippet? No mention of it in the real world down here.
    Crypto is not a viable retail payment method unless you have a card that converts it like TenX.

    I think it is neutral. The only reason why to pay employees is to avoid taxes and formalities. So for those insane people (like me) there is no need to regulate it by formalities.

    Maybe it will be lucrative once currencies will start falling like a rock... errr.... ARS.
    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    That particular snippet came from Sovereign Man. However, here is something you might find more mainstream:

    Yeah I found something on this site .
    https://www.interest.co.nz/personal-...s-pay-salaries

    The main thrust seems to be the IRD saying IF you pay salaries in Crypto, pay bonuses in crypto (or award tokens via IPO) then PAYE taxes are owed. Just in case someone was going to say that since it's not NZD it's not money.

    Apparently, NZ's 1983 law explicitly states salaries/wages paid in NZD are taxable, so they're trying to say that all forms of value are taxable

    This originated in Japan i think, not sure if it's still the case but how does it work out for the tax man?
