myIR Secure Online Services, their phone lines and offices will be unavailable from 3pm, Thursday 18 April – 8am, Friday 26 April while they make these changes.
Are you an employer? Plan ahead and file your March Employer monthly schedule (IR348)EMS before theyclose at 3pm on 18 April.
IR-FILE HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED
The ir-File service in myIR has been discontinued from 11 March. If you’re still filing monthly schedules after 11 March you must use the ‘payroll returns’ account in the My business section of myIR to file EMS and employer deductions.
IMPORTANT: myIR owners need to delegate access to others.
PAYDAY FILING IS HERE FOR ALL EMPLOYERS
The law has changed so you must start payday filing from 1 April 2019.
You can start filing from your first payday in April using the payroll returns account in myIR. Remember – IRD’s services will be unavailable, so we recommend you file your Employer monthly schedule (IR348) EMS for the March period before 18 April.
