Public holiday reporting and payment dates

Your reporting and payment dates may change when we close for public holidays. We may even pay you early.

Easter 2017 holiday closures

We will be closed on:

Reporting

If you are due to report your earnings or employment during the Easter holidays, there are other dates you can report. We’ll pay you after you have reported to us.

If you report early during your assessment period, you must estimate your earnings or other changes for the full period. You can correct your estimate within 14 days, or when you next report.

If you report after your assessment period, we’ll pay you after you report to us. You may want to do this so you can be sure of your earnings or changes to your circumstances.

Automatic payments

We won’t delay payments because of the holidays, but we may pay you earlier than usual. An early payment is your normal payment, just paid early.

Where we pay an early payment, we pay as close to and before your usual payment day. You will need to budget so this payment lasts until your next payment is due.
