GST online is changing on 7 February
On 7 February 2017, IRD are improving how customers manage their GST through myIR Secure Online Services.
Important notice - Inland Revenue services unavailable
For the improved My GST online services to be switched on, all IRD services will be unavailable over Waitangi weekend from 3pm on Thursday 2 February until 8am on Tuesday 7 February. During this time you will not be able to access any myIR Secure Online Services or contact IRD through call centres.
What's changing from 7 February 2017 GST refunds will be paid electronically
From 7 February, all GST refunds will be paid directly into your bank account, instead of by cheque. Make sure you provide IRD with your business bank account when completing GST returns resulting in a refund. The easiest way to add or update your bank account is in myIR.

Make the move online
With GST online improvements coming, now's the time to start managing your GST online. With a myIR account, your GST return calculations are done for you and you receive immediate confirmation once your return has been filed. You'll also be able to:
Pay your GST at the same time you file your return, without having to log out of your myIR account to make the payment.
Arrange GST instalment plans online, and in most cases receive immediate confirmation and approval.
Add file attachments online - you'll no longer need to send them by post.
Choose to receive email and/or text message reminders when your GST return and payment is due or late, to avoid penalties.
Please remember, all IRD services will be unavailable from 2 February until they reopen on 7 February 2017. For more information and a sneak peek at the improved myIR online services, visit the IRD website.
