Corrections

Correction to the foreign currency article in TIB Vol 15, No 10

A couple of errors have been identified in the "Foreign currency amounts - conversion to New Zealand currency" article.

In the introduction to the article (page 10) we state that:

"The tables in this item list exchange rates acceptable to Inland Revenue for converting foreign currency amounts to New Zealand currency under the controlled foreign company (CFC) and foreign investment fund (FIF) rules for the three months ending 30 September 2003."

This should in fact be "six months".

Also the dates heading the columns in Table B (page 14) show 2002. Despite this, the rates in this table are the rates for 2003.
