Hi Robert here from, The Source Bulk Foods, which is an organic health food shop.

As an owner-operator of 3 stores, you have to do everything, from sweep the floors, serve the customers, to doing your taxes.

We switched to payday filing in April, uh… it’s made life as a small business owner very very easy.

We do our payroll in about 5 minutes through our payroll software, there’s no more monthly schedules to fill out.

The, PAYE tables, your KiwiSaver, your student loans, having to try and find the right tax code, with payday filing you don’t have to spend so much time with tax compliance.

I know the deductions of the employees are going out at the correct rate, and I know if there is a problem that IRD will contact us through the secure services.

If you’re an employer and thinking of switching to payday filing, it saves you time, and we all know that’s great for business.
