Are you ready for Payday Filing?

From the 1 April 2019, new payday filing requirements from Inland Revenue mean that every time you pay employees, you’ll also need to file employment information. With payday filing in Xero, you’ll be able to file your employment information to Inland Revenue straight from Xero Payroll, so it only takes a few clicks to complete.

Payday Filing. Xero is ready, are you?

1/. Ensure your employee details are correct - Name, Address and Date of Birth.
2/. Ensure you have Payroll access in your myIR account.
3/. Thats it if you are already using Xero Payroll!!

Already using Xero Payroll?
Good news: there won’t be a big change to how you currently process your pay run. Filing will be simpler and you won’t need any software updates.
The current process of manually uploading your files to myIR will no longer be required. Instead you’ll be able to file your pay run and employee information straight from Xero Payroll after each posted pay run.
