Employment Tax

Managing your obligations

Looking to find out what you need to know to manage payroll tax in NZ as an employer? Whilst New Zealand doesn't have a separate payroll tax, it does administer a large number of withholding tax regimes through the PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system. These include ACC levies, Kiwisaver, Student loans and Working for Family Credits.

What about Fringe Benefit Tax?

Fringe benefits—such as medical insurance and motor vehicles—are subject to a separate ‘Fringe Benefit Tax’, but other benefits—such as accommodation—are included in the PAYE system. These quirks add complexity for companies in meeting their employer obligations.
