As a business owner who employs staff and/or if you pay yourself a wage, you have to make pay as you earn (PAYE) deductions to Inland Revenue. Your individual employees may have different tax codes and rates depending on their personal circumstances. You may also need to make deductions for child support, Kiwisaver or student loans. The PAYE deduction does include ACC Earner’s levy though. 

Your PAYE deductions are due on the 20th of each month if you are a small employer with gross annual PAYE deductions of less than $500,000 (including Employers contribution tax (ESCT)). For larger employers with gross annual PAYE deductions of $500,000 (including ESCT) or more, you will need to make two deductions per month, the 20th and the 5th of the following month…
