Institute of Certified NZ Bookkeepers

Dear all,

Firstly on behalf of Xero, I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate you all on gaining bookkeeper agents status with Inland Revenue. It has been a long journey over the past nine years and we are thrilled to have played a part as the founding sponsor of ICNZB. It is a real honour to have an official status with Inland Revenue,  we feel very proud of our New Zealand bookkies, and look forward to following your continued journey.

It’s been a busy few months here at Xero so I thought it might be easier to save you some reading time and summarise what’s been going on.

Payday filing

Thank you so much for attending our webinars and providing feedback. We are really pleased with the result and look forward to further Xero Payroll developments (watch this space).

In the meantime, we have scheduled more payday filing webinars over the next few weeks so you can ask any questions and catch up on the latest. View the upcoming webinars and register here.

Stay payroll certified

Just a small reminder that our quarterly payroll update is coming soon. This is a must attend to retain your payroll certification status. You can register here.
