Get it done online

"Get it done online" is where to go when you want to complete a form and send it to us online, make a payment, look at your account information, use our "Secure mail" service, file an employer schedule or register for some of our services. It is also the place where you can make an appointment to see us, give feedback or make a complaint. You can find the service you need by keyword, activity or by the name of the service. Once you find the service you want, the "Full description >" link will tell you when to use the service, how to complete the online form and what to do when you have finished. If you get stuck, or need help filling in a form, many of our services provide links to help and detailed explanations of some questions.

Work it out

This is where you will find all the calculators, worksheets and other tools you may need to work out if you need to fill out a return, make a payment or estimate any assistance benefits you may be entitled to. You can also download tables of data you may need such as the PAYE deduction tables. You can find out about the different tax rates as well work out your personal or business filing and payment dates. These tools, including our online calculators, are for your use only and no information is sent to us for processing.

Forms and guides

In the "Forms and guides" area of the site you will find all of the forms and guides that we publish in paper format. These documents are downloadable and many of them can be filled out on-screen before printing and posting to us. You can find the form or guide you need by keyword, document title or number (for example, IR330). If you want to know how to fill out a form, what you need to complete it and what to do when you finish then click on the "Full description >" link.
