The Aotearoa New Zealand Digital Advisory Group (DAG) Payroll Working Group brings together members of the New Zealand Digital Service Provider (DSP) payroll community to discuss and work through payroll matters for the benefit of the broader community. The working group aims to create an environment where there is structured and early engagement with DSPs from the policy development phase through to the co-design and implementation of payroll changes. 


The working group is chaired by Inland Revenue’s Payroll Software Developer Specialist, with DSPANZ providing secretarial support and is a collective forum of payroll software providers to discuss payroll-related items outside the Digital Advisory Group (DAG). Please find the current membership of the DAG Payroll below.
