Payday filing through our gateway services or myIR file upload service lets digital service providers:
- send employment information to us each pay cycle instead of monthly
- send us any changes to employees' details.
If you have any questions about payday filing or using gateway services for payday filing, email PaydayReporting@ird.govt.nz
From 1 April 2021, we'll require all employers to use payday filing version 2.
Employment information includes employees' income for each pay cycle. Businesses using payday filing must submit this information to us within 2 working days of the payday.
Employers also need to send us details of new and departing employees. They can do this through file upload or through their software.
They need to send us this information by the next employment information due date, but they can send it earlier.
There's currently no ability for employee deductions payment through our gateway or file upload services.
