    Proposed taxation changes


    Continuation of the IRD Business Transformation project

    The second part of the roll out of the new myIR tax system is due to be launched.  This part focuses on business income taxes and includes PAYE and some enhancements that you may not currently see on myIR.


    myIR will be unavailable from 3:00pm Thursday 18 April through to 8:00am Friday 26 April 2019 while the IRD transitions from the old platform to the new.  From 26 April 2019 when you log into your myIR account, the home page will look different. 


    We understand that the new myIR will provide more functions to taxpayers, including a lot of what we are responsible for.  We do ask that you only attend to what you know.  If you are unsure then please ask one of our Accounting Specialists for assistance.
