We’ve made an important improvement to the way you do your IR filing in Crystal Payroll each month. Instead of downloading two .csv files (IR348 & IR345), and then uploading these seperately you now only need to download ONE .zip file and upload that to the IRD.
Once uploaded to myIR, both the IR348 & IR345 will be submitted to the IRD automatically. (Note: You still need to Import and Send or Import and Check as you did before) It is also always worth checking the Workspace Receipts page to ensure the files have been uploaded ok.
While this may not look like a big change, it saves you an extra couple of steps and more importantly is removes the risk of not uploading both files.
*Note: The file name is irFiles-YYYYMM-First Contact.zip (YYYY is the year, MM is the month).

Recently the Ministry of Business and Innovation (MBIE) has launched a "policy builder" website which steps you through the process of writing workplace policy documents for some of the key employment related areas of your business.
One of the key areas they have focused on is developing a policy for Leave and Holidays
Policies set out the rules for your workplace, and together with an employment agreement, are a great foundation for employment relationships. Policies tell your workers what you expect from them, and what they can expect from you.
You can find out more here and the onscreen wizard will step you through developing a policy for your workplace based on best practice.
