Are your employees enrolled in
If so, then this is a must read for you.
Recent changes in KiwiSaver have altered employee and employer
minimum contributions. Essentially both employee and employer
minimum contributions have increased from 2% to 3% of gross salary.
The increase came into force in April.
So, what do you need to do?
If you have not already made internal changes to reflect the
increased contribution rates you need to get onto this ASAP.
Check what contribution rates your employees have nominated. These
might be 2%, 4% or 8%. If the employee is contributing 4% or 8% you
won't need to make any changes. If the employee is contributing 2%
you will need to alter the employee and employer contributions to
3%, and back date the increase to the the first full pay that the
employee received in April.
