      • (b) the Commissioner grants an exemption to the borrower under section 38AE or section 38AJ.

      (2) The conditions in section 38AK(2) apply to subsection (1).

    38AB 183-day requirement
    • (1) A borrower satisfies the 183-day requirement if that borrower is personally present in New Zealand for a period of 183 or more consecutive days after 31 March 2006 (a 183-day period).

      (2) For the purposes of subsection (1), a borrower is treated as being personally present in New Zealand if—

      (3) A borrower who satisfies the 183-day requirement is entitled to the full interest write-off set out in section 38AK for the first day within the 183-day period and, subject to section 38AC, for each subsequent day.

    38AC Full interest write-off ceases if borrower is personally absent from New Zealand for 184 days
