Have you recently spent many hours manually producing your employees PAYG summaries for the end of the financial year? Then you probably don’t want to be told how easy it can be after the fact…BUT, we can suggest how to make it easier moving forward.
Easy compliance starts with good record-keeping. This all starts with providing payslips to your employees. With the right online accounting solutions in place, small business owners can easily:
On a weekly basis, payslips ensure that employees receive the correct pay and entitlements and allow employers to keep accurate and complete records.
How and when are payslips given?
Payslips should be given to an employee within 1 working day of pay day, even if an employee is on leave. They should be in either electronic form or hard copy.
What has to be on a payslip? (The boring but important stuff!)
Payslips have to cover details of an employee’s pay for each pay period including:
(All of this is already set up for you if you use an online accounting solution… see, we promised it was easy.)
Should leave balances be on a payslip?
While it's best practice to show an employee's leave balances on their payslip, it’s not a requirement. Employers however, do need to tell employees their leave balances if they ask for it.
With payroll compliance obligations out of the way the EOFY should be an exciting time to reflect on the past 12 months of your business performance, to evaluate your business growth and to plan for the next year ahead.
