Frequently Asked Questions:

Below are Q&A from the SIG meetings

Sl.No Question Answer
1 What is the minimum tools version required to uptake Pay Day reporting? The recommended tools release is PT 8.56 or higher. Development and testing will be done on DBs at this tools level.
2 Does Pay Day reporting require that remittance of employee deductions be done within 2 days of Payment Date? Or can the report be submitted and actual remittance done at a later date? Payment due dates for PAYE and other deductions will not change with introduction of Payday reporting.
3 Do we need to report Period to Date or Year to Date values Period to Date need to be reported
4 Will there be an early adopter program? Yes, that is the plan.
5 Does audit logging while creation of PDR data covers mis-match of results due to change in balance group id? No.The audit log we plan to deliver as part of the solution covers the validations that is listed by IRD for PDR file generation
6 PDR file is originally submitted to IRD for a finalized calendar. The user would do a retro process change for the finalized calendar and run the normal pay process for the current calendar. Do the customer need to file an amendment file in this case? There is no change in reporting format between current 348 and PDR.

There is no need for amendment since the changes that is being effected retrospectively will have results carried in to the current calendar as retro overrides are “ defined” as forwarded by default. The reporting for the current pay period shall take care of those changes.


In case if the correction is using offcycle thenany difference in results either in pay outs or otherwise will have processed in that calendar. In such cases, customer can choose to file a separate PDR report with IRD.

7 Will there be a change in current EMS 348 feature with the PDR solution delivery There is no change to current EMS 348 reporting and will continue to support. However the current process will become obsolete down the line, will be decommissioned accordingly.

PDR solution is mutually exclusive and will be separate from current EMS 348 reporting functionality
