Why Use a PAYE Calculator?

Understanding and correctly calculating your tax obligations is crucial, whether you’re an employer making payments to the IRD, or an employee looking to gain a better understanding of your pay. Crystal Payroll’s user-friendly PAYE calculator provides a reliable, simple solution to help you work out your tax deductions accurately and swiftly.

Demystifying PAYE: What is it?

PAYE, or Pay-As-You-Earn, refers to the process where a specific percentage of wage or salary earnings are withheld and paid to the government as tax. Each payday, tax deductions are made from gross earnings and transferred to the IRD. Besides income tax, PAYE may also include other income-based deductions like KiwiSaver contributions, student loan repayments, and child support payments.

Why Use a PAYE Calculator?

A PAYE calculator like Crystal Payroll’s offers several advantages:

  • Budgeting: By calculating your net pay, you can get a clear picture of what’s left for your expenses. With our PAYE calculator, you simply enter your details to visualize your net income.

  • Verifying system calculations: While it’s rare for system calculations to go awry, if the figures seem off, you can cross-check your details with our PAYE calculator for verification.
