The easiest way to manage payday filing is to let our payroll software do it for you. It’s 100% automated so you’ll never need to think about PAYE filing again.
As the first software provider to launch payday filing in April 2018, we’ve sent tens of thousands of payroll returns to IRD already.
As early adopters of payday filing, we’ve worked closely with IRD for over a year to develop the simplest, most effective solution on the market.
1. Head to Manage > Integrations in PayHero.
2. Click to connect to Inland Revenue.
3. Securely login to myIR and authorise the connection with PayHero.
How does payday filing work in PayHero?
We’ve developed a direct connection to IRD’s new gateway services system so we can submit your tax returns electronically. IRD sometimes refers to this method as machine to machine or business to business (B2B) payday filing.
Simply connect your account to myIR once and your payroll filing will be taken care of automatically when you finalise each pay. There’s no need to manually file anything via myIR.
Do I need to contact IRD to get set up?
No. As long as you have a myIR account for your company you can connect to that directly from PayHero and authorise payday filing without talking to IRD. New companies need to contact IRD to register as an employer and get a new myIR account set up.
Does payday filing cost extra in PayHero?
No. Payday filing is included in the FlexiTime PayHero pricing.
Do I need to submit an IR345?
No, when you’re set up on payday filing you’ll no longer need to file an IR345 (EDF) or IR348 (EMS). That means that our payday filing is truly zero touch and there’s nothing for you to file.
Where can I find out more?
Your best bet is to check out all the information on IRD’s website as they’re updating it regularly.
Who does payday filing apply to?
All employers must file their PAYE after each pay, rather than once or twice a month. If you make PAYE/ESCT deductions of $50,000 a year or more you must file online. If your total PAYE/ESCT is less than that amount you can choose to file online or file paper returns.
I’m a tax agent that files PAYE on behalf of my clients. How does this work for me?
It should make your life much easier! You’ll need to authorise the IRD connection with the correct permissions for each client and then everything will be automated.
Why has IRD introducing payday filing?
Having more timely information means IRD can work out tax and entitlements faster and more accurately, providing more confidence to companies and employees that they are paying and receiving the correct amounts throughout the year.
To achieve this without an increase in compliance costs, IRD is enabling payroll software providers to file your returns on your behalf via a direct integration.
Filing becomes part of your normal payroll process so you don’t need to remember to send returns in at the end of the month.
