Payroll Processing > Service Periods > IR56F

When an employee leaves employment or dies while in employment, employers should complete form IR56F for them.  More information on the IR56F can be found on the Inland Revenue Department website.

SimplePay generates form IR56F automatically based on the employee’s payslips, as well as any take-on balances, if applicable. This allows you to generate a complete IR56F for the entire term of employment in the current year even if you only started using SimplePay at some point during the tax year.

You can preview an employee’s IR56F in PDF format at any point during their employment by going to their profile and clicking on End Service. Once you have terminated the employee, you will also have the option to download the PDF. To do this, click on Manage End of Service on the employee’s profile. More information on ending an employee’s service can be found in the following article:

*Before downloading the IR56F on SimplePay, please ensure that your filing details have been completed. Go to Settings > Employer Filing Details and fill in the required information.
