Inland Revenue is Changing for You to make tax more straightforward.

An image of the Inland Revenue website flips into view, before flipping upwards to show the new myIR site. The image dims slightly and the 'I want to...' tab is highlighted.

As part of this process, we're updating the look of our website, and myIR Secure Online Services, as well as adding new features to simplify the tax process.


Visual:

A pink circle with a white icon of a calculator, some coins and a piece of paper fades in. Below, it reads 'Tax assessments.' The title fades out and 'Payment options' fades in in its place. As this happens, the icon flips over to a green circle with a white icon of two bank cards. The circle flips over once again and the title fades out, this time to show a blue circle with a person icon and the text 'Account access.' Everything fades out to leave an empty teal screen.

The text 'We're continuing to make improvements based on customer feedback. Please note some things may change.' fades onto the screen, with the word "improvements" in a rough font.

We've streamlined your account access by removing the "My business" tab.


Visual:

A tax account tile, like the ones available on the myIR homepage, flips into view. The tile is light blue and is labelled as an RWT on interest account. The tile flips over to show a similar one labelled as a GST account. The tiles continue to flip over twice more, to show other tax type accounts that businesses might use. The final tile, for income tax, fades out.

Audio:

You can access your business accounts through the tiles on your myIR homepage.


Visual:

An Inland Revenue form pops up from the bottom of the screen, with the words 'Income tax return' and 'IR3' written across, the top. Above it, an Income Tax tile flips into view. The form is pulled down slightly, before flying towards and behind the tile.

When you need to file an Income Tax Return, you can now do so through the 'Income tax' tile in your myIR.

An Inland Revenue form with 'Income tax return' written across the top appears on the left side of the screen. 'IR4' is written in a large font in the middle of the form. More forms appear across the screen, labelled as IR6, IR7, IR8 and IR9. In the same order that they appeared, these forms fly up and into the Income Tax tile.

Audio:

All business income tax returns, such as IR4s, IR6s, IR7s, IR8s and IR9s, can now be filed electronically in myIR.

A paper clip flips into the middle of the screen, before shrinking and moving up slightly. An Inland Revenue form, labelled with 'Income tax return' and 'IR10' flies upward into the paper clip. The paper clip attaches itself to the top left corner of the form, before the form slides up into the Income Tax tile. The tile then fades out.

If you need to pay provisional tax, you can now make an estimation in myIR.


Visual:

The text and background inside the box fade away to show the 'Upcoming provisional tax due' tab in myIR. A mouse cursor moves to highlight a 'Change estimation' button, the current provisional tax estimation, and the 'Make payment' button. The box then fades away to an empty teal screen.

You can now pay with a direct debit from Australian bank accounts.


Visual:

The banks cards icon flips over to a calendar page with 'August' written at the top. The page peels away to one labelled 'September' and a coin is fired from Australia to New Zealand. This repeats once again, before the map fades out and the page labelled 'October' peels away to reveal a box with the myIR homepage inside it. The box grows and moves to the centre of the screen. A mouse cursor clicks on 'Make a payment' on the myIR homepage, and then moves to select 'Set up a recurring direct debit. The box then fades out.
