What is SuperStream?
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) launched SuperStream on 1st July 2015 as the new way businesses are required to pay employee superannuation guarantee contributions to super funds. It’s an electronic format that allows employers to make all their contributions in one single transaction. Our payroll services are SuperStream compliant.
What is Single Touch Payroll (STP)?
From 1st July 2018, the ATO will release a new reporting procedure for employers with 20 or more employees. It means employers will report to the ATO each time you pay your employees, including information on employees’ salaries, allowances and deductions. Carbon’s payroll services will be Single Touch Payroll compliant.
We currently spend too much time on payroll. Is there a more streamlined solution?
Payroll can be a complex area especially for small to medium sized businesses who are not familiar with it. A simple solution for small to medium sized businesses is to outsource their payroll processing. At Carbon we have a team that specialise in processing payroll. We understand payroll is an integral part of your business and needs to be completed with accuracy as it can have a significant impact on your employees’ personal circumstances. We tailor our services to meet your business’ needs whilst ensuring all your compliance needs are met with regard to tax and superannuation.
What are the benefits of outsourcing payroll?
Payroll can be confusing if it’s not something you specialise in. Choosing to outsource to a team of specialists who process payroll day in day out is a much more efficient option which frees up your time to better spend elsewhere on your business and also save on salary costs.
What online software should I use for processing payroll?
Using online accounting software to process payroll makes for an efficient, streamlined process. At Carbon, our team work with Xero, MYOB and Quickbooks to provide businesses in Perth with ATO-compliant payroll services.
