Payroll software solutions

Payroll headaches at EOFY? Here’s how we can help.

Feeling rushed? It must be EOFY time again. Everyone has their paperwork to do and their tasks to tick off.

If you’re in the payroll team, every payment must be filed by 31 March to fall within the current financial year — no small feat.

You need to accurately finalise employee earnings, tax withholdings, KiwiSaver and benefits. It’s a high-stakes balancing act between thoroughness and efficiency.

We spoke to MYOB Partner Success Manager Ian Barron about how MYOB can make EOFY easier:

1. Automation of payroll processes

Firstly, MYOB’s payroll software automates almost everything, helping you avoid time-consuming calculations for wages, taxes and KiwiSaver contributions.

Accordingly, Ian notes that with MYOB, you’re given the numbers you need, freeing you from hours of manual calculations.

“After finalising a pay run, MYOB auto-generates bank-ready files in minutes, simplifying your payment process,” he explains.

This year-round automation pays off at EOFY because you know you’re working with accurate figures.

2. Comprehensive reporting

The most important thing to check before EOFY is that your payroll files match your IRD files — and MYOB’s reporting feature delivers just that.

You can do proactive checks on minimum wages, KiwiSaver contributions and tax rates to ensure compliance.

Better yet, the centralised system gives you the in-depth data you need when you’re closing the books at the end of the financial year.

It’s a clear and concise way to review your financial obligations and business health.

3. Streamlined tax filing

When it comes to taxes, accuracy is non-negotiable. MYOB automates tax calculations, keeping your business in line with IRD’s requirements.

As Ian explains, you can also file your employee earnings and related tax documents directly with IRD through MYOB.

Consequently, this means timely and accurate submissions, helping you avoid penalties associated with late or incorrect filings.

4. Easy employee management

Onboarding new hires? Adjusting to staffing changes?

With this in mind, MYOB streamlines employee management by offering a centralised system where you can easily add new staff members, update existing employee details, and manage leave and entitlements.

No two businesses are the same, so you need to customise your payroll software to suit your specific needs.

Whether you have casual, part-time or full-time employees, you can configure the MYOB payroll system to fit your company, Ian explains.
