Student loan scheme repayment threshold for the 2009-10 tax tear
2008 Order in Council increases the student loan scheme repayment threshold to $19,084 for the 2009-10 tax year.
The student loan scheme repayment threshold, which sets the income level at which compulsory repayments begin for New Zealand-based borrowers, will increase from its current level of $18,148 to $19,084 for the 2009-10 tax year.
The threshold is reviewed annually in December. It has been inflation-adjusted by the annual movement in the September 2008 CPI and rounded up so that it is divisible into whole dollars on a weekly basis.
