It's time to shift to payday filing
Remember, the law has changed so all employers must switch to payday filing by 1 April 2019.
You may be able to switch now, and here are some tasks to help you and your clients get ready:
- Review payroll processes, plan and schedule when to switch.
- Ask your software provider when they'll have payday filing compatible software.
- If your software provider has payday filing compatible software and you’re using myIR you can let the IRD know you're switching to payday filing in myIR. Make sure you are linked for PAYE and you’ll be able to bring the payroll returns account into your workspace.
In the meantime the IRD is calling customers to talk them through opting into payday filing. Note that these calls are just to discuss payday filing; they won’t be discussing debt or compliance issues.
For more information check out the IRD's payday filing webpage or call the team at Alliotts in Auckland on 09 520 9200.
