We promised to deliver business transformation in four stages across a series of releases. We're now in the final phase which includes moving all remaining tax and social policy products into our new system, however Stage 4 is a little bit different from what’s come before.
Previously, our major releases have aligned with the beginning of the tax year in April. Given the impacts of COVID-19, a single large release in April 2021 isn’t possible, so the changes are being added in two releases. The first release went live on 1 March 2021. This release included:
- paid parental leave
- foreign trusts
- unclaimed money.
The second release, which includes child support and an upgrade to myIR, is planned for October 2021. If you are impacted by the Stage 4 changes, we’ll connect with you to ensure you understand how they may impact you.
