Payroll can be Complex

As the WK payroll manager for the past 7 years,
The most common question I get asked is…

…”Do I need to get my employee to sign a contract?”

FullSizeRender 7The answer is always “yes, most definitely!” Even if you are only employing someone for a day, they need a Contract of Employment and also to complete a Tax Code Declaration form (IR330).

If you are processing your employee payrolls, knowledge of the relevant payroll legislation (such as minimum wage and leave requirements) is required but still Payroll processing is an area that can sometimes throw up unusual complications and complexity.

A good referral source for Employment contracts (or a payroll issue), is the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment website.
