Plan To File GST Before 18 April 2019


Inland Revenue are upgrading their systems from 3pm on Thursday 18 April to 8am on Friday 26 April 2019 NZT. During this time, all IRD systems and services will be offline, including phone lines, offices and myIR web services.

What it means for you

GST returns for the period ending 31 March are due 7 May. You’ll still be able to prepare and finalise your GST return in Xero during the outage, but it can only be filed online from Xero to Inland Revenue before or after the system upgrade.

Where possible, we recommend you finalise and file your GST return prior to 18 April to avoid any unforeseen delays caused by the upgrade.

If you require assistance with filing your GST prior to April 18, 2019 or your end of financial year procedures, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Training and Beyond.
