The Inland Revenue computer system that lets businesses file GST returns online has struck a problem for the second time in two months.

A spokesman said some customers had been unable to log on to the section of its website that provides access to secure online services yesterday, although it was not aware of any issues today.

Last month, businesses reported problems filing GST returns in time for an annual deadline.

In April, Inland Revenue had an email outage that prevented it dealing with some customer queries for a few hours.

None of the faults is understood to be related to its core First computer system, which the Government plans to replace at a cost Inland Revenue estimates at up to $1.5 billion.
