There have been a few law changes on payroll filing so here’s what you need to know.

From 1 April 2019 employers must:

  • File employment information every payday instead of an Employer monthly schedule (IR348),
  • Provide new and departing employees' address information, as well as their date of birth - if they have provided it to you; and,
  • File electronically (from payday compatible software or through myIR) if your annual PAYE/ESCT is $50,000 or more.
Note: The due date for payment remains the same at the 20th of the month (or 5th and 20th of the month for twice-monthly filers). Find out more about payday filing.


ir-File discontinued

On 11 March, the ir-File service in myIR, used to file Employer Monthly Schedules and Employer Deductions forms, will be discontinued. We recommend that you file your February PAYE return early, by 11 March if possible.

We recommend you activate Payday Filing from 1 March in your myIR account. You can do this by following these instructions:
