KiwiSaver is a voluntary, long-term savings initiative and for many people, KiwiSaver will be work-based. It's designed to make it easy for people to maintain a regular savings pattern.
As an employer, you'll need to provide your employees with information about KiwiSaver, and their KiwiSaver contributions will come straight out of their pay.
KiwiSaver is a government initiative involving employers, KiwiSaver scheme providers and several government agencies. KiwiSaver is governed by various Acts including the KiwiSaver Act, passed in September 2006.
