It’s important to get an IRD number as all your tax, entitlements (like student loan or Working for Families Tax Credits) and personal details are linked to this number.
Your child will need an IRD number if they’re earning any money or interest, or if you’re applying for Working for Families or child support.
If you’re starting an organisation that will involve money changing hands, it’ll need its own IRD number.
