The Government has ambitious goals of achieving better outcomes for New Zealanders through delivering better public services. One way to do this is for government agencies to share more information, enabling businesses and individuals to tell government information only once.
At present, PAYE information is used by Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC), the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) and Statistics New Zealand under specific legislative authority.
The Government is conscious that other government agencies also require information from employers and that there may be scope to rationalise the number of separate process. It should be noted that for greater sharing to occur a law change or Order in Council would be required.
Do you provide information to other government agencies which you think would more appropriately be provided to and passed on by Inland Revenue as part of the PAYE information process?
