Pay your PAYE . . . or go to jail 18 May 2016

If you’ve got a business which involves paying staff and you are getting into financial difficulty, pay your PAYE immediately it is due.

Recently a taxpayer was initially sentenced to 14 months in jail because he used $120,000 of PAYE to fund his business instead of paying it to IRD. Although the businessman admitted he was at fault and had attempted to come to an arrangement with IRD, the High Court, reducing the penalty, still made him do 300 hours community service and four months of home detention.
