Since 1 April 2018, employers have been able to file payroll information every payday rather than monthly. Payday filing is voluntary for employers until 1 April 2019, when it becomes compulsory. If you’re an employer, it’s important that you start thinking about how to adapt your business processes to incorporate this new requirement.
Inland Revenue has two webinars on payday filing available to give you more information on how this will work. The first webinar, ‘Payday filing for employers – more detail’, provides an in-depth overview whilst the second, ‘Payday filing for employers – update’, focuses more on change implications. You can register for these webinars here https://www.cchlearning.co.nz/events/cat-58-inland-revenue/ and find out more about payday filing at www.ird.govt.nz/payday.
