Inland Revenue is improving their GST online services. While the update takes place, all IRD systems will be unavailable from 3pm on Thursday 2 February until 8am on Tuesday the 7 February. You will not be able to access any myIR online services or contact IRD through their call centers. The system update will cause draft returns to be deleted so make sure you complete any draft GST returns before 2 February.
If you are using myIR to file your GST return(s), from the 7th February you will be able to:
- Pay your GST at the same time you file your return
- Arrange GST installment plans online
- Add file attachments online
- Choose to receive email and/or text message reminders
If you have provided others with administrator or user access (not your accountant) to your myIR account, you’ll need to review and confirm the level of access you want them to have by 1 February or they will not have access to the improved GST services from 7 February.
The myIR mobile app will no longer be available, you will need to file your GST through your myIR account.
If you have any queries about the changes or how to use the new system, please contact us.
