Payday filing was voluntary from 1 April 2018 and becomes mandatory for all employers from 1 April 2019.
Under payday filing, the majority of employers will be required to provide payroll information to Inland Revenue in electronic form within two working days following each payday.
After extensive public consultation, the Government has drafted legislation to introduce a research and development (R&D) tax credit of 15% on eligible R&D expenditure. This legislation is expected to pass early next year and will apply from the beginning of the 2020 income tax year. For early balance dates, it will apply for years beginning 1 November 2018. The new R&D tax credit will replace the Callaghan Growth Grants which will be phased out by 31 March 2021.

The year is rapidly coming to a close and apart from wondering where it went, 2018 appears to have been a year of growth! We’ve seen it in our business, our team, clients’ businesses, the Hawke’s Bay region and the PKF network.

As mentioned recently, we have noticed an increase in Inland Revenue queries, reviews and audits. As your accountant (and in many instances your Inland Revenue Agent) we are required to prepare replies and communicate with the Inland Revenue on your behalf. In some cases when there are complex environments, unusual circumstances, multiple years or multiple companies and trusts, costs to liaise with the Inland Revenue can add up pretty quickly.
In order to help mitigate these costs, we have recently sent out information about Audit Shield Insurance.
