IR File .EMS file extension not allowed

Hi

I have tried to upload the normal .EMS file to IR File but this is no longer allowed. It must be a .txt or .csv file.

I haven't changed to payday filing yet. I am using MYOB Payroll 2018.1

Please help?

Thanks, Dianne

Re: IR File .EMS file extension not allowed

Hi @DianneD41239 

 

NZ Payroll (Desktop) will allow for the user to generate their IR reports ready for lodgement with the IRD through Reports>>IRD Reports. Typically, the result of generating those reports will be a zip file that contains the necessary information. That zip file would then be needed to upload to the IRD for reporting those values.

 

From my understanding, and I would encourage you to check with the IRD if you are unsure, is you would navigate to the File Transfer option in the top right or your My IR and from there you can lodge the required zip file. This is apposed to selecting the File Return option with the month date on the main page.

Kind regards,
Steven

Re: IR File .EMS file extension not allowed

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your reply. I managed to get a solution from MYOB phone help yesterday. The zip file had to be extracted and saved as a csv file. The instructions are below:

 

  1. Go to the zip folder (IRDMONTHLYRETURNSXXXXXXXX.zip)
  2. Click on the folder once, then right click and select extract all
  3. A window will appear, select the location to where these extracted files will be saved to.
  4. Click extract
  5. This will take you into the folder (IRDMONTHLY RETURNxxxxxxxx),no .zip
  6. Click on the EDF file and then right click, rename to ir345.csv and enter (the file has changed to a Microsoft excel file)
  7. Click on the EMS file and then right click, rename to ir348.csv and enter (the file has changed to a Microsoft excel file)
  8. You don’t need to rename the KED file, but if you want to follow the same procedure but rename ked.csv

 

Log into your myIR account

 

  1. Go to my business.
  2. Click on payroll.
  3. Click on file transfer at the top right under I want to.
  4. Select file transfer employer deductions ir345, upload and choose file. Import and click next. Tick the declaration box and submit.
  5. Go to my business.
  6. Click on payroll.
  7. Click on file transfer at the top right under I want to.
  8. Select file transfer employer schedules, upload and choose file. Click on the next button. Tick the declaration box and submit.
