5 Payroll mistakes you probably don't even know you are making (and what to do instead)
But after working for many years for a payroll software company helping business owners and payroll administrators with all their payroll questions (and frustrations!), I noticed something.
While payroll software made it possible for businesses to manage their payroll, there seemed to be a knowledge gap resulting in them doing things that could lead them to become non-compliant.
And it's no surprise. Payroll legislation in New Zealand is complex, and understanding all the rules – not to mention how to apply them to your business can be time-consuming and stressful.
But it's also incredibly important because the consequences of not complying can be serious. Apart from disgruntled employees, non-compliance can result in fines, legal fees, and considerable time and money to sort it out.
That's why I've made it my mission to demystify the payroll process and take the stress out of paying your employees correctly (because, let's be honest, there are plenty of things that are stressful about running a business, and paying wages shouldn't be one of them!).
In this guide, you'll discover the top 5 mistakes I see businesses like yours make when managing your payroll – and what you can do instead so you can feel confident you're meeting all of your payroll obligations.
