Payroll made easier

We’ve partnered with SmartPayroll to offer ANZ rural customers 6 months’ free SmartPayroll* to help make your job easier. With your payroll in good hands, it’s one less thing to worry about.

SmartPayroll’s online system helps make doing the payroll faster, easier and with less paperwork – they even automatically file with the IRD on your behalf. Your employees will love it too – they’ll have their own app to easily complete time sheets, view payslips and apply for leave.

An important change for all employers

From 1 April 2019, Inland Revenue will make payday filing compulsory for all employers. Payday filing requires employers to file their employment information every time employees are paid including who was paid, how much they earnt in that period and the tax, student loan and Kiwisaver contributions made to Inland Revenue. Payday filing will replace the current monthly information filing process. Employers who have staff on weekly or fortnightly pay schedules will have to do this filing on a weekly or fortnightly basis (there are some concessions for small employers), and as a result many employers will need to adapt their current payroll processes. The extent to which the payday filing changes may affect your company will depend on the size of your company and whether or not your company uses payroll software. If you do not currently use payroll software, now may be a good time to assess whether it could be a good investment for your business. SmartPayroll can make the process easier for you by completing payday filing automatically on your behalf, or if you choose to do your own reporting, they can provide a file for you to upload each payday.
