Have you recently contracted your payroll processing function to another company who pays your employee wages, benefits, PAYG, superannuation and payroll tax on your behalf?

Recent audits have identified contracted payroll processors not passing on payroll taxes to relevant state revenue offices. Despite receiving payments from the employer, these payroll processors have failed to pass on the tax payment.

It is therefore strongly recommended that you conduct appropriate due diligence before engaging a payroll processor to perform these services.

If you have a payroll processor:

  1. Ask for proof that they have passed on payroll tax to the State Revenue Office.
  2. If you are unsure that payment has been made, contact us on 13 21 61 to confirm.

If you have been approached recently by payroll processors offering to help your business we welcome tip-offs about illegal behaviour.
