Calculate Tax on Holiday Pay - 2010

This calculator is only for pay periods ending between 1 April 2009 and 31 March 2010 (inclusive). This calculator works out how much PAYE to deduct from an employee's holiday pay. Use this calculator to work out the amounts to deduct for PAYE, student loan repayments and KiwiSaver contributions, as well as any KiwiSaver employer contribution amounts you are required to pay.

PAYE/KiwiSaver Calculator

Note: From 1 April 2009 the ACC earners' levy has increased from 1.4% to 1.7%. This means that taxpayers who earn $40,000 or less and do not qualify for the independent earner tax credit will see an increase in the total PAYE deducted.
