Payday filing is coming

Payday filings a compulsory new way of reporting employment information. Each time staff are paid, you'll need to file employee information to Inland Revenue within two days.

This means you’ll file more information, more frequently and if your annual PAYE and ESCT deductions are $50,000 or more, you’ll need to do it online

By 1 April 2019, Xero will seamlessly integrate with Inland Revenue so payday filing is done automatically with each pay run.
