Understanding PAYE

As an employer, you’re responsible for calculating and deducting income tax and ACC earners’ levy from your employees’ salary or wages each pay period and sending these deductions to us on their behalf. This is known as PAYE (pay as you earn).

Deducting child support payments from wages

If any of your employees need to have child support payments deducted from their wages, we’ll send you a letter telling you how much to deduct. You can enter this amount into the PAYE deductions calculator and it will factor the deduction in.

PAYE intermediaries

You can outsource your payroll to a PAYE intermediary. They will do the job for you and work with us on your behalf.

If you pay less than $500,000 a year in PAYE and ESCT (employer superannuation contribution tax) and use a PAYE intermediary, you may qualify for a subsidy.

We help you…

All businesses that pay wages must file PAYE Returns with Inland Revenue. This is just another task that detracts from your core business.

As part of running your payroll, we can also take care of all PAYE filing requirements.
