License Fees Change  

You will have been notified by MYOB IMS that there is an increase from 1 October 2019 in the price of new purchases of the software and correspondingly, an increase in license fees for all new and existing clients.
This is perhaps a timely reminder to review the number of active employees you have on your payroll, as you may need to purchase additional licenses.
If your company has downsized, you may be able to drop your license fees.

Student Loans  – Student Loan Compulsory Extra Deduction Notice
These are known as SLCIR & SLBOR letters
This is when you are notified by IRD that the student loan is to be repaid at a different rate, it is often 41.67% until a maximum value has been paid.
Please let us know if you need assistance to setup this up in your MYOB IMS for your employees.
