Employees need to fit their personal lives and family around their work (or vice versa) so scheduling rosters and keeping track of time off, holiday pay and annual leave requires a LOT of co-ordination and record keeping.

Payroll administration is closely tied to the hours that employees work and their wage and working conditions so it’s an area of accounting that requires attention to detail and knowledge of employment laws and regulations.

Single Touch Payroll (STP)

If your only experience with payroll is receiving a regular wage payment where all your deductions and super payments are taken care of you’ll be in for an interesting learning journey.

Payroll and superannuation contributions are an important contributor to employees lifestyles, life choices and financial assets.

From 2019 payroll and wages are closely linked to superannuation via Single Touch Payroll, also known as STP with the goal of ensuring that all employee superannuation entitles are paid promptly by employers.
