IRD have issued a notice advising some customers may have been incorrectly issued with Late Payment Grace period letters on 18 May 2017.

The affected GST periods are 31 March 2017 and 30 April 2017, and the respective letters advise the following:

Period ended 31 March 2017

Customers that filed and paid on or before 8 May 2017 incorrectly received a letter advising the payment is late and to pay an overdue amount of $0.00.

Period ended 30 April 2017

Customers that filed early for the period ending 30 April 2017 incorrectly received a letter advising the payment was due 29 May 2017 and this is now overdue.

They advise customers who have received the letters to disregard them.

Inland Revenue have apologised for the error and will be reviewing their processes to prevent a recurrence of the issue.
