File your information with Inland Revenue
Ir-filings are based on the payment date of the pay run, and not the pay period end date. This can mean that an expense related to one month isn't paid until the following month. Post a manual journal to reallocate the wages expense to match your reporting requirements.
Change the payment date to a date in March if wages are paid in April, but due to be filed and paid as March PAYE. Please note that you can only change the Payment Date when the pay run is in draft status.
File your salary and wage deductions with Inland Revenue after you have reconciled your payroll in Xero.
Before your first pay of the new financial year
Review and update your employee's salary and wages information if they've received a minimum wage increase. The income tax rates and thresholds are updated for the new tax year in Xero.
If 1 April is in the middle of a pay period, two lines with the different rates will appear for the total amount of hours on the payslip. Edit the hours on each line to show the correct hours at each rate for the pay period.
Your pay calendars will continue as normal according to the frequency in the new financial year, but YTD earnings that appear on employees payslips will reset to zero as of the first pay run processed.
