Find out how to file your returns and make payments

Updates to GST payments and returns

  • You can pay your GST in myIR when you file your return
  • You can choose to pay by direct debit, credit or debit card or online banking.
    • When using online banking to complete your return, you'll need to choose 'no' at the 'Return payment method' step.
    • You can do a direct debit with a joint account as long as either party can authorise a withdrawal on their own.
    • You can choose to schedule a direct debit for the due date of the return - by default it'll go out on the date you're submitting the return.
  • Set up email and text message GST due date reminders
  • Set up a GST instalment payment plan
  • You can amend a GST return you’ve already filed.

GST refunds

  • All GST refunds are now paid directly into your bank account. Make sure your bank account details are correct
  • You can see the status of your GST refund online anytime


  • GST statements now have a new look but still have all the information you need including a summary of your filing period(s) and a summary of transactions for each period.
  • Any electronic correspondence can be found under Letters and Messages.
  • You can now upload any files relating to your GST return.

You can also file by accounting software

  • If you’re already filing this way – when you file your return you’ll have to enter your myIR user ID and password to give permission for your software provider to file on your behalf.
  • If you want to start using software – check with your software provider if it is capable of myIR GST filing.
