We have a new way of finalising end-of-year income for some individuals. Changes for individuals

 

 

Payday filing

All employers must switch to payday filing now. For more information check out payday filing.

 

Investment income

If you or your clients provide benefits or payments in the form of interest, dividends, PIE income, taxable Māori authority distributions or royalties, then you’ll need to know about the investment income reporting changes.

 

AIM

From April 2019 businesses can start using AIM (the Accounting Income Method) at any time during the tax year, not just at the start of the tax year. More information can be found on the AIM website.
