What you need to know about switching to payday filing

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).

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. The Payroll Returns account replaces this, which will show in your myIR account from 28 February. File upload and online entry options will still be available.


You can view our webinars on demand where we share information about payday filing and how to get prepared before April 2019.
