Public Holiday: Matariki 2022

On Friday 24th June 2022, it's the public holiday for Matariki. Here's what you need to do to ensure your team gets paid on time.

Do I need to change anything?

Friday 24th June can be a pay day because we will be processing pay runs on Thursday evening. However, Saturday 25th June cannot be a pay day because the banks are closed on the Friday.

Some of your employees might work on this public holiday, or have time off.  They could also be taking annual leave. You’ll need to add all the different pay types into your timesheets before you run your next pays.

Also, you'll find some more information in our Support Documents:

Direct Debiting

Your Pay Day is Saturday 25th June

Your pay will not process on this day and you will find the pay day has moved to Tuesday 29th June. You must still click ‘confirm and debit’ before 6pm Thursday 23rd June for this pay to go ahead.


If you'd rather pay your employees earlier then you can log into Thankyou Payroll and create a pay manually with a Thursday 24th June pay date. You will need to fund this pay before 6pm Wednesday 22nd June.

Pay Automation

Your Pay Day is Saturday 25th June

Your pay will not process on this day and you will need to log into Thankyou Payroll and create a pay manually with a new pay day - either Thursday 24th June or Tuesday 29th June.

If you are changing your pay day to an earlier date, remember you may need to change your Automatic Payment to transfer the funds earlier too.

Manual Timesheets

Your pay will not process on Saturday 25th June and you will not be able to select this day for your pay to process. If you'd rather pay your employees earlier then you can log into Thankyou Payroll and create a pay manually with an earlier pay date.
