Just wondering if me and my friend would need an IRD number to work in New Zealand?
We are only going to be working casually on farms and houses around the country and
will not be working full time. We have applied for our 12month working holiday visa and
have only heard you need an IRD number for full time employment. Thanks for reading.

Unless you are going to be paid cash I'm fairly sure you will need one. It's not a hassle to get one though so it's probably worth your while anyway.
