If you have something to say we would love to hear from you.
Our financial team offer a highly efficient weekly payroll service and are rightly proud that they have never, not paid a contractor on time every time.
Should you choose to accept an assignment with us or have sourced a role yourself but need an agency to facilitate payment, you will have a choice of engaging with us as either employees, sole traders or via your own private company. Below are the main differences for you consider.
Often referred to as “Pay as You go (PAYG) Contractors”, this is the most common form of engagement. There is a 2.5% administration fee on your gross hourly or daily pay that includes the following:
We will pay you weekly directly into your bank account. The funds are usually available on Wednesday morning at the latest. We invoice the client at the end of each calendar month but we do not delay payment to you. We will also pay your income tax and the payroll tax monthly and send you a tax statement for inclusion in your tax return each July.
We will pay your super directly to your nominated and Govt. accredited superannuation fund. We can also facilitate a salary sacrifice arrangement or other salary packaging arrangements in concert with your financial advisor to maximise your take home pay.
We will cover you for Workers Compensation and Public Liability insurance, and we administer any claims.
As the name suggests a sole trader is a business owned and operated by one person. It has the advantage of being able to move from assignment to assignment without all the administration associated with being an employee. You do not need a company structure or even a business name but you do need to acquire an Australian Business Number (ABN) that we can assist you with if required.
Another advantage is that we do not deduct your tax from your weekly pay – but we do still collect your super contributions and pass them on to your fund. We also cover you for Public Liability insurance.
There may be other advantages that we can discuss with you if you want to explore this option.
On the downside you will not be covered for Workers Compensation insurance and you may need to register for GST.
The administration fee is also applicable for sole traders.
If you choose to contract through a company structure you will not be charged an administration fee, as you will be taking responsibility for a number of matters that we would normally do for you. If you already use a Pty company we are happy to accommodate you.
For those that are unfamiliar with this option, it gives you a lot more independence and control over your finances, and can be highly tax effective. However your turnover needs to be significant otherwise the set up and annual administration expenses cannot be justified. There are also other considerations that are best discussed in detail with an experienced accounting professional.
