What is payday filing and how do I shift to it?

You must file an employment information form every time you pay your employees. This is based on the date you pay employees (pay day) and may be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or more often if you have multiple paydays. You do not need to file if you do not pay employees during your regular pay cycle. Payday filing is a new way that you must file your employment information. It will soon be the new norm and expected from all employers. 

    When you file your employment information form, you must include the pay day and pay period your employee worked. The pay period start and end date may be different for each employee, and can be recorded in myIR when you file Employment Information using the on screen method or in your payroll software. If you click on their IRD number, you can put in the pay period of the time worked.
