Filing returns and making payments: PAYE intermediaries
How does the scheme work?
Employers who pay less than $500,000 in PAYE and ESCT each year are eligible for a subsidy if they use a listed PAYE intermediary. The subsidy is to encourage small employers to outsource their payroll services so they can focus their efforts on growing their business.
How much is the subsidy?
The subsidy is $2 per payday per employee. It is available for up to five employees and is paid directly to the PAYE intermediary.
What is a listed PAYE intermediary?
A listed PAYE intermediary may be an existing payroll provider, an accountant or other tax professional. They must register with Inland Revenue before they can receive the subsidy.
Any payroll provider can apply to become a listed PAYE intermediary by completing our PAYE intermediary registration (IR910) form. The requirements for becoming a listed PAYE intermediary are on the form.
Choosing a listed PAYE intermediary
Please note - only some payroll providers are registered as listed PAYE intermediaries. Make sure you choose a listed PAYE intermediary that can provide the services you require and is registered to receive the subsidy.
