In New Zealand, Stripe Tax supports calculation and collection of GST.
When to register for tax collection

Remote sellers supplying goods or services in New Zealand must register if their taxable turnover from these transactions exceeded 60,000 NZD within the past 12-month period or will exceed this amount in the next 12 months. These rules apply to businesses supplying remote services such as digital content or low-value goods from outside New Zealand to customers who are resident in New Zealand and aren’t registered for GST. Sales to New Zealand GST-registered businesses that are subject to reverse charge don’t count towards the threshold.
Threshold: 60,000 NZD
Time frame: Previous or current year.
Included transactions: Any taxable transactions that reverse charge doesn’t apply to.
