This Ondemand was hosted 14th March, 2024.

Payroll practitioners and anyone needing to understand what 1st April 2024 changes are happening and how they will impact payroll.


There are a range of changes to payroll in New Zealand that change annually every year on the 1st of April. Other tax and employment law changes are also timed for a 1st April implementation.

Payroll professionals must understand how new, upcoming, and potential future changes could impact their payroll.

In 2024 we will start to see some of the major changes that the present government is pushing through. These changes will bring about major changes to payroll.
