Payroll Management

Processing wages, salaries, deductions, bonuses and deductions and meeting compliance requirements can be taxing!

We want easy payroll management to be accessible to everyone and believe that providing a value for money service is where it starts.

Bookkeeping setup or maintenance

If you’re comfortable going it alone with your bookkeeping and payroll management, but just need a little bit of advice on setting up Xero or MYOB or maintaining the codes, we can help with that too. That’s why our clients love our service.  You can get simple advice or total accountant management anytime you need it.

Common questions

Do I need a bookkeeper?

If you run your own business, chances are you do need a bookkeeper. If you’re wondering, “Why do I need a bookkeeper?” the simple answer is because time is money. Bookkeeping is time-consuming, especially if you’re not a bookkeeper yourself. The fact is, your time should be spent running your business, not spent doing menial tasks that take you away from your core business.

When you work with us, we educate you on the tasks so that you can quickly and effectively do it yourself.

What is Payroll Management?

It’s the administration process of all employee’s financial records.  It’s the ever-important job of paying salaries and recording them, managing wages, bonuses, and employee deductions.

Where can I find a payroll manager in Melbourne?

Right here.  Of course, we’re not the only one around, but we’re sure you’ll love the fact that we take your numbers personally.  We’ll do everything we can to make your payroll management processes run smoothly.

How do I process super payments?

If you want to pay the correct super amounts at the right time to all your employees, we can help you set it up as a payroll process. We’ll help improve your automation with tools such as Quicksuper (or another super clearing program) and help you streamline your super payment processes.

Do I need to do payroll reporting?

The simple answer is yes, all businesses with employees are now required to report wages electronically to the Australian Tax Office (ATO), every time your payroll is processed. Get in touch if you would like us to show you how to do Single Touch Payroll (STP) reporting using your accounting software such as XERO or MYOB or Reckon.

What info do I need to add a new employee to my accounting software?

The information that you need from your new employee to add them to your  MYOB, XERO, Reckon (or most other accounting software) should come from asking them to complete a TFN declaration as well as a Superannuation Choice Form.  Once they have properly filled in these documents, you can easily add them yourself to your system.  Or, if you need any assistance, give us a call, and we can make sure everything is good to go.

How often do I need to pay super for my employees?

It should be paid by the 28th of the following month, from the end of each quarter.  If you miss this date, see the next question on what to do if you miss the deadline.

What happens if I miss the deadline to pay superannuation?

Firstly, don’t worry too much. Keeping transparent is the best thing you can do. Aim to lodge a Superannuation Guarantee Charge Statement with the ATO as soon as you can. If you are unsure how to do this, you can ask your bookkeeper or accountant to help. While you will still need to pay the outstanding amount, you will be given the option to set up a payment plan that suits your cash flow.

When is Payroll Tax payable?

Payroll tax is a state-based tax that becomes payable once total remuneration paid to employees including contractor payments exceeds a threshold.    For example, the threshold for Victoria is $700,000 for the year ended 30 June 2022 ($650,000 for year ended 30 June 2021).  Feel free to contact us to discuss further.
