Desktop Payroll - Cannot Create Employee File



Have tried today to save the IRD Employee file and have received the message "Cannot Create Employee File"

Any ideas why this would be happening.

I had issues last week after a microsoft update and not being able to email payslips, have managed a workaround to get that working but this week encounted a problem when finalising the pay.

I have filed the IRD info manually, but would like not to have to do that every week !!

        Hi DSD 

        have you tried removing the employee phone number (if you had one in there.) I have seen problems with this in the past. I would think it would be a new employee or terminating employee where the IRD is advised new employee information, and then a leaving date.
