Inland Revenue scheduled maintenance 21-28 October 2021
During Inland Revenue's scheduled maintenance, you won't be able to set up pay day filing. If you're already connected, you can process your pays as usual, but they'll show a status of Submitting until Inland Revenue resume their services on 28 October.
Before you can submit employment information to Inland Revenue for payday filing, you'll need to get set up. Setting up only takes a few minutes (we kid you not). All you need to know is your business's IRD number and your myIR login. So let's get started!
What if I've recorded pays before setting up?
You’ll need to get that information to IR. You can do this by either deleting the pay then reprocessing it (after setting up payday filing), or manually entering the pay run information into myIR.
Before you start setting up
If you're new to MYOB Essentials, there are a few things you'll need to check before you start setting up payday filing.
The owner of the business's myIR account (this could be the business owner) should set up payday filing for the business. You can delegate someone to set up on your behalf – see Delegate others to submit payday filing.
The person who has been uploading files for payroll via ir-File could also set up payday filing for the business.
Once the business is set up, each person submitting employment information to Inland Revenue must authorise MYOB to submit on their behalf.
Set up payday filing
Start the process via the Payroll menu by clicking Payday filing. Here's a breakdown of the steps:
2. Confirm IRD number
3. Authorise MYOB
Make sure that the owner of the business's myIR account is setting up (or a delegated staff member).
Confirm we've got the correct IRD number for the business. You can change it from here if needed.
You need to authorise MYOB Essentials to send payroll information to Inland Revenue on your behalf.
After you've gone through the set up steps, you're good to go. Each time you process a pay, you’ll send your employment information directly from MYOB Essentials to Inland Revenue. Learn more about Payday filing statuses.
