    I can understand if youíre running a business and not paying tax that some other person in same line will be slightly peeved, but a 2nd hand dealer licensee too, seems a bit much, plus the fine $20,000

    I can be thankful all the stuff I want to get rid of I did not buy with the purpose of reselling it.
    Actually looking around the house Iíve got no idea why I bought half the stuff, and the other half I donít remember buying it just seems to arrive.

    They are spending four days a week on it - that's well past the point at which consumer protection laws start to apply.

    Edit: See here.

    After reading all the comments on the Trademe postings, I can see why the legit shop owner is all Peeved off - they are basically running a small business and not paying taxes for income. Next will be a call from the IRD.

    Even the original poster says it.

    "elderly friends of mine have a little hobby to keep them busy 4 days a week, they are beneficiaries, and have started up a little repair computers and sell the odd 2nd hand computer .


    Key words there, SELL. They are busy 4 days a week and theres an income - hell, many small places would love to be busy 4 days a week all the time and receiving an income, if you have a business then you have to pay Tax etc.

    If they didn't receive any income from the repairs then the person who dobbed them in really doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    It's to do with the frequency. On a auction site, sure you can sell the odd item that you don't use anymore but if you do it regularly the authorities may pounce on you. How how some people import stuff from overseas on a regular basis and offload them to make a profit.

    Think about it, 4 days work for some people may even be full time employment, certainly it is part time. Ie., school child after school.

    What is the earning limit to get the full pension?
    Intel Core i5-3470 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card
    Enermax Tomahawk II 500W PSU
    Antec 300 case
    Win7 Pro (Action Pack :D)

    surprisingly quick even without an SSD

    I can understand the not paying tax not being fair to others who do, plus they have premises costs accting fees, etc,
    It was the 2nd hand license I didn't think off.

    No earning limit to get pension in NZ it's not means tested, just have to be 65??

    Yep, I know people who still work full/part time (and taxed) while receiving their pension, the pension is not affected.

    :
    Well if it's a business and they do deal in second hand then they should get the license and pay the fee.

    Too many people running businesses on TM and avoiding tax, licenses, CGA and everything else they should be doing.
    wipe your paws.

    I think you might find that the income over and above the pension is taxed at the same rate as "Secondary Income" ... not sure what that rate is, but it's higher than the normal tax rate.
