Final pay tax not correct

This is the first final pay we are doing in Essentials payroll. I know in the last payroll programme we had to adjust the tax to say how many weeks the pay was for so the tax was correct.

I have entered our employees final pay into the IRD website with different results to Essentials payroll.

What is the trick in this payroll to get the tax correct for final pay.


Thank you, Barbara

Re: Final pay tax not correct

Hi @harper23


Unlike (Desktop) New Zealand Payroll, MYOB Essentials doesn't allow for a tax override feature. 

If the PAYE value is not what you are after or have been instructed to take a different amount from the employee by the IRD you can click into the PAYE component on the right-hand side of the Pay run and make the necessary changes.




If you are changing the PAYE value on for your employee's pay I would recommend confirming that information with the IRD and ensure that the correct number is entered.

Kind Regards,
