Shell’s footprint

Shell had been present in New Zealand for more than 100 years but divested its downstream retail business in 2010 and its upstream assets in 2017 and 2018. A small number of dormant entities remain in New Zealand, as well as a head office of an entity which operates through a branch in Malaysia.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in New Zealand is 28%. Losses predominantly represent functional support charges and there are no business activities in New Zealand. In compliance with New Zealand law, taxes are calculated and paid to the relevant tax authorities for entities retained after the divestment in 2018.

A branch is an office or business presence in a location other than where the corporate entity is established.
