Submit annual returns online and save time

Publish date: 05 January 2017

Minerals permit holders can now easily submit annual summary returns using our Online Permitting System.

The online form combines information previously submitted across four forms, and saves the need for manual paper work.

“I encourage permit holders to use this new service – not only will it save permit holders time and effort, it also reduces the need for NZP&M to re-enter the information provided manually into our systems", says Dr Marcos Pelenur, National Manager Minerals.

“This means our permit officers can spend more time on permit applications, building on the big improvements in processing time made this year. We expect permit holders will find the simplified online process easier and more efficient to use."

Josh Adams, National Manager Petroleum, says petroleum permit holders can already submit their returns online, but there are plans to introduce the same functionality as the minerals form in 2018.

Annual returns need to be submitted by 31 March 2017.

Register for and use the Online Permitting System.
