We have removed a validation that has affected some employers who file via file upload or onscreen in myIR.
myIR had validations that prevented customers from submitting Employment Information (EI) returns where one or more of their employees’ total deductions are greater than their earnings.
When IR received employer Superannuation or KiwiSaver contributions on EIs without any gross income being present, it prevented the employer from filing their EIs. However, this is a valid situation, as an employer can choose to contribute even if the employee has not received any earnings for that pay period.
We have now removed this validation so employers can file via file upload or onscreen in myIR even if the required total deductions are more than earnings.
