If you have contractors working for you and you are deducting and paying withholding tax to the IRD (commonly known as scheduler payments), then as from 1 April 2017 these contractors can choose their own rate of tax (subject to minimums and must not be lower than 10%) to be deducted from any payments made after 1 April 2017.
