NZ Payday Reporting
Customer Information

What is PayDay Reporting?

As of 1st April 2019, employers will need to file their employer obligations data to IR (ie report Payroll information) on a payday basis rather than the current monthly basis.

Payday filing will comprise two sets of data:

  • Employment Information includes employees’ income and deduction information for a specific paydate.
  • Employee Details such as employee name, address, phone numbers, data of birth when available, employment start and end dates, tax code, Kiwisaver information and so on.

Who has to report?

Employers and PAYE Intermediaries using payroll software (whether voluntarily or mandated), must report Employment Information to IR within two working days of the payday that the data relates to.

Employees Details are required to be supplied to IR no later than the next filing of Employment Information.

FastTrack have got you covered.

We are working closely with IRD to deliver the required changes to ensure our customers meet their Payday reporting obligations from April 1, 2019.

Deferrals and Exemptions

No deferral or exemption process is available for Payday reporting, all employers and intermediaries must meet their new obligations from April 1, 2019.

Stay up to date

Please keep an eye on your inbox for any communications from us, and stay informed via the IR website.
