Inland Revenue Department (IRD) settings | Payroll Web Platform

The payroll platform uses your Inland Revenue Department (IRD) settings when lodging a pay-day filing. These details inform the IRD who is lodging these events for your organisation and provide them with the needed information to process your requests.

The IRD settings feature requires you to select from two submission types: lodging as an employer or lodging as an intermediary. You can only select one of the two options and which one this is depends on how your organisation submits lodgements to the IRD.
