Payroll Services – Payday Loans VMR Thu, 24 Nov 2022 02:40:56 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Payroll Services – Payday Loans VMR 32 32 Government accuses typo of wrongly pricing multi-employer bargaining Thu, 24 Nov 2022 02:40:56 +0000

The federal government blames a typo for a $5,000 discrepancy in the estimated cost some companies could incur in multi-employer negotiations.

Labor wants to push through its massive industrial relations bill within the next week, but its multi-employer negotiating elements are proving controversial with both the opposition and Senate MPs, including the government. needs to support the bill.

The The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations has estimated that engaging in negotiations and paying a consultant could cost mid-sized businesses around $74,000.

However, the Coalition says the real figure is $5,000 more.

Speaking on ABC’s Capital Hill show, Small Business Minister Julie Collins sought to downplay the mistake.

When asked if the government had been disappointed with her ministry, she repeatedly described the error as a “distraction”.

“They absolutely have to be correct,” Ms Collins said of the estimates.

“But we think… what we saw yesterday was a big distraction on what is, essentially, a typo.

“What we’re trying to do is make it cheaper and easier for small businesses to get into corporate bargaining. That’s what the bill does.”

The government needs the support of ACT Senator David Pocock or Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie to push through its Industrial Relations Bill.

Both have called on the government to split its bill, so that they can pass most of it and return to multi-employer bargaining next year.

Coalition Chair Michaelia Cash keyed in on some of the sources used by the department to calculate the cost of the legislation to businesses.

Bureaucrats were accused of using Google to charge the bill, with parliamentary papers citing a document – which was written by a self-proclaimed “spiritual healer” – titled “How much should I charge as a consultant in Australia?”.

A separate footnote cited a page “How much do payroll services cost?” from

Michaelia Cash calls on Labor to withdraw industrial relations legislation

“What we have now seen is that the ministry and the government are using websites (where) the guru is a modern day healer (and) is now advising the government on how much a company should charge per hour for consultations,” said Senator Cash.

“And then they also forget to tell you that when it comes to calculating payroll services, they use, which lists as its most popular services: dog walking, dog grooming and pets, private investigators, limousine rentals and magicians.

“This process has now gone from the absurd to the absolute wacky and what it shows is that this legislation is not fit for purpose and should be withdrawn by the government.”

A Labour-led parliamentary report on the Federal Government’s Industrial Relations Bill earlier this week recommended excluding more small businesses from multi-employer bargaining.

The committee recommended that the definition of a small business employer be changed from less than 15 employees to less than 20 employees, including regular casual employees.

On Thursday, Ms Collins said negotiations with the crossbench were continuing but the bill still listed the threshold at 15 employees.

PaySauce lets you focus on growing your business Sun, 20 Nov 2022 23:18:00 +0000

PaySauce is a fintech SaaS platform providing solutions for people at work in 14 jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region. The company makes payroll software, simplifying the way employers manage the human side of their business, from digital contracts and timesheets, to payroll, banking and tax filing.

Founded in 2015, its mission is to be a direct provider of effortless solutions for people at work. In practice, they make the relationship between employer and employee smooth and easy, and give small business owners time in their business.

PaySauce currently has 45 employees, based in New Zealand, and many of them come from entrepreneurial and startup backgrounds, running their own businesses, which means they understand that payroll is not anyone’s favorite job. !

“We’re a small crowd with a lot of smart people coming together. It’s pretty cool,” says Marie-Claire Andrews, Head of Sales and Marketing, PaySauce.

PaySauce is both the company name and its product. Particularly popular in New Zealand’s agricultural industry, one in two dairy farms employing in the country uses PaySauce’s solution to meet their payroll needs. However, although New Zealand is the company’s primary focus, the country is one of 14 jurisdictions in which it operates. Other countries include Australia and most of the Pacific Islands.

The reason he has such credibility in the agriculture industry is because of his ability to solve a crucial challenge. A few years ago, PaySauce worked to ensure that all farms complied with the IRD requirement that no staff member ever go below minimum wage in a pay cycle. The company supported the implementation of this solution, solving the problem on a national scale without the farmers having to worry about anything.

PaySauce’s roster tool has also been a big hit with the rural sector, being flexible enough for the different working models farmers need to run the farm.

In addition to its reputation as a leader in the rural and agricultural sector, PaySauce has a strong presence in the construction, hospitality and professional services sectors.

Andrews notes that it comes down to a growing desire by a range of organizations to meet regulatory requirements while remaining productive.

“We now have a significant proportion of businesses that, like all other SMBs, want to save time and know they are compliant,” Andrews says.

For the broader small business sector, PaySauce offers a unique feature called PayNow, which effectively allows employees to choose their own payday.

The company believes that getting paid fortnightly or monthly is an outdated idea and purely based on administrative simplicity.

The company has partnered with BNZ and, through PaySauce’s mobile app, PayNow allows employees to access a portion of ‘earned pay’ – the salary an employee has earned each time they view his application – before his actual pay day.

This free offer makes it easy for an employee to deal with unexpected issues, whether it’s bills, getting their car repaired or even going to a funeral, with BNZ advancing the money instantly. Once payday arrives, the funds are deducted from the employee’s salary and returned to BNZ. This service is completely free for the employee and the employer. As it is funded by BNZ, there is no cash flow impact for the employer, and neither the client nor their employee is required to be a BNZ client!

PayNow was created to meet an already present demand. While the company makes sure to have an overview of habits and offers support with links to budget advice services if needed, it is meeting the existing demand for a solution that gives people the access to their earned wages while maintaining confidentiality and autonomy.

By providing the PayNow service, PaySauce offers a real alternative to payday lenders, who charge exorbitant fees and interest. This can lead to a debt spiral for some employees. With PayNow, employees don’t have to worry about having difficult conversations with their family or boss. Instead, they can just access their salary and go about their business.

Through its offer, PaySauce estimates that it saved around NZ$1.4 million in payday loan fees. Not only that, but it gives employers visibility into how the employee is using the facility. This can be the catalyst for positive engagement to help with budgeting.

Along with her people-centric approach, Andrews says PayNow is what inspired her to join the company.

“I just thought that a company that would build something like this with no commercial return must have a good heart. And it does,” she says.

“I think that’s part of our market advantage – we really care about people.”

PaySauce is designed to take the hassle out of employment and administration as well as the stress of job pitfalls because while starting a business in New Zealand is easy, these factors can make running a very overwhelming business.

“If small businesses are employing, great, they’re growing, and we want to help them do that and just help them sleep at night knowing they’re compliant,” Andrews says.

Regarding the impact of the pandemic, the company’s rural and agricultural customers were already accustomed to working remotely. However, for its clients in other industries, the ability to remotely manage shifts, leave requests and mobile payments has become a mainstay of their operations.

There are three market trends that PaySauce is currently focusing on: compliance anxiety, lack of time, and the difficult recruiting market.

Because the company serves SMEs, the reality for these organizations and the working lives of their staff is that their hours are already full, without the added hassle of managing payroll and other financial requirements. PaySauce gives them a software platform that promotes greater efficiency, giving small business owners hours of their day that would otherwise be spent going through everything manually.

When it comes to the recruitment market, employers need an advantage over the next company to attract the right staff. PaySauce strongly believes that the foundation of a strong employer-employee relationship is paying the team well. If the team knows that a good system is in place that can give them access to timesheets, payslips, leave balances and real-time salary information, it will be transparent and visible and easy to manage. have job conversations with your boss.

As for the future of PaySauce, Andrews says there’s a lot to do.

“The start-up days are definitely behind us. We are now on a scaling trajectory. So definitely in control of our own destiny,” she adds.

“We are delighted because we are in a strong position to reinvest in future growth. And that is absolutely what we will do.

“We are also exploring Australia as our next market, which inspires us. We want to stay focused on delivering a quality product on a scalable platform to this target market, which is SMEs. We love our small We just think they’re underserved by good technology, so that’s where we’re going to stick with it.

Advent One modernizes Tambla’s payroll system Fri, 18 Nov 2022 04:43:00 +0000

Melbourne-based IT services provider Advent One has revamped payroll services for human resources software provider Tambla Workforce Solutions.

Advent One was asked to optimize Victoria’s health worker management and payment processes using an SAP system based on an aging infrastructure.

Tambla inherited the platform through its acquisition of corporate and government payroll specialist Datacom Business Services (DBS) in 2020.

“We had very old infrastructure that we inherited through an acquisition, all going straight into the public cloud,” said Richard Mitton, chief information officer at Tambla. “From a performance and cost perspective, there was nothing we could do [digital transformation]; they just had a server with SAP, but they weren’t delivering it to critical departments.

“Over 200,000 people are paid through the server every pay period: basically all of Victorian healthcare. This was during the pandemic so the pressure was on. With the infrastructure we inherited no only the monthly replacement of modems with hard drives, but also the demolition of one of the data centers.
