Cool Moving to NZ but still being paid by UK company

Hi All,
I am moving out to NZ with my partner & 6yo just after Christmas. I will continue to work for my UK employer. Does anyone have any pointers on the best way to handle the salary and tax aspects? I am sure some of you guys out here have been in similar situations, so hoping for some good advice!

Are you a contractor or a real employee?

I did some contract work and got paid directly and then into my NZ business. Setting up a NZ limited company is a breeze.

A few folks around here have done that so you might get some input - otherwise there are old threads about it. Good luck

I did this for almost 4 years. Company in UK managed to waiver tax payments over there, so I just had to pay tax here by doing a return each year. Wage was paid directly into my NZ bank account.
