What's changed

GST payments and returns

  • Pay your GST when you file your return without having to log out of myIR.
  • Make GST payments by direct debit, or by using your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card.
  • Set up email and text message reminders when your GST return and payment is due or late, to avoid penalties.
  • Arrange GST payment instalment plans online and in most cases receive immediate confirmation and approval.
  • Request an amendment to an already filed GST return.

If your next filing date is coming up, now’s a good time to check out the new My GST section in myIR. Login to your account and select the My GST tab to get started. Login to myIR

GST refunds

  • All GST refunds will now be paid directly into your bank account. You can update your business bank account details at any time in myIR.
  • You can see the status of your GST refund online anytime.

GST statements

Your GST statement will look a bit different to the ones you might have received in the past. The new look GST statement still has all the valuable information you need; we’ve just made it clearer and easier to understand. The GST statement will include a:

  • summary of your filing period(s).
  • summary of transactions for each period.

eDocuments

  • All GST correspondence, including messages to and from us, can be found in the new My GST section.
  • You can upload files relating to your GST return, you no longer have to send them by post.

myIR mobile app

The myIR mobile app is no longer available. Please file your GST through your myIR account - you can do this from any electronic device.

 

Filing via accounting software

You can still use accounting software to file your GST.

If you're currently filing by accounting software, you’ll see a change to the authorisation page once you’ve submitted your GST return. It’ll be the same as the myIR login page and an additional screen will pop up asking for your permission to allow the software provider to submit the GST return on your behalf.

If you want to start using software, check with your software provider to see if tax-filing is available in their package.

myIR account access

If the myIR account owner provided others with administrator or user access to the myIR account, and hasn’t yet reviewed and confirmed the level of access they want them to have, the owner can do this by following these steps:

  1. Login to myIR
  2. Select My GST tab
  3. Select Logon settings
  4. Select Manage additional logons and choose the staff member's logon and change the access settings

If the owner doesn’t confirm the access levels the administrators and users won’t have access to the improved GST online services.
