More than 1,500 schools called to provide additional support

More than 1,500 schools have been called this week by the Ministry of Education to provide additional support for end of year payroll reports.

Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says so far 83 per cent of schools have sent their reports in, and the Ministry is continuing its calls and intensive support to help other schools complete their reports.
.
“This response rate is a real credit to the professionalism and dedication of payroll staff and principals, and I want to thank them for all their hard work over recent weeks.

“Calls to schools that have not yet sent in their reports are continuing and this is proving a very effective way of providing direct, targeted assistance, and to escalate issues and resolutions as needed.

“The Ministry is committed to ensuring the end of year payroll process goes smoothly for all schools and staff.

Ms Elvy also reminds schools they have one more week to apply for reimbursement for attendance at the Novopay roadshows.

“We want to make sure schools are properly reimbursed for this, just as we will reimburse any additional audit costs directly related to Novopay.

“Any school that hasn’t applied for reimbursement has until next Friday, 30 November. The forms and information, along with a sample tax invoice, are on the home page of www.novopay.govt.nz”.
