- Complete and electronically file an Employer deductions (IR345) form using ir-File.
What you need to do in the second half of the month
- Pay deductions from wages paid between the 16th and the end of the month by the 5th of the following month.
- Complete and electronically file the Employer monthly schedule (IR348) and the Employer deductions (IR345) form using ir-File.

You can generate a list of all the due dates that apply to you by using our Tax due date calculator.
From April, you can choose to file your employment information on a payday basis. If you choose to do this you’ll need to file an Employment information schedule instead of an IR348.
