For a number of Accountants and SMEs that I talk to, the ability to directly lodge the PAYE forms with the IRD, from within the software is quite oftern the number 1 requested feature.

Employer filing method


File monthly using on-screen form to key your schedule details.

You would use this option if you operate a manual wage book.


File monthly using payroll file transfer

You would use this option if you have an accounting package for your payroll to transfer these details to us electronically.  Your payroll software developer should have our ir-File soecifications and will be able to help you upgrade your payroll  software if necessary.
