If you have made a GST payment for the period ended 31 January 2017 and the amount has not yet been deducted from your bank account, note that Inland Revenue have posted the following message on their website homepage:

"There is a delay in processing direct debit payments for GST due 28 February. No penalties will be charged if your payment was requested on or before the due date. The debit should appear in your bank account tomorrow."

If you are still concerned about incurring penalties, we are only a phone call or e-mail away – we'll be happy to help.
