Change to online tax returns

Changes to online tax returns

The IRD have made changes to the way you file your GST returns.

In September last year the IRD introduced the eGST filing service.  Now the decision has been made to remove the ability for the public to access the standard online form, meaning customers will need to change their filing methods and register to file their returns through MyIR.

The IRD will have sent a letter to all clients in July notifying them of the change. In addition to this a new GST email service has been established to alert customers registered with MyIR that their GST return is available, three days before it’s due.
