Employment tax

Helping businesses navigate the complexities of employment taxes and ensure all employer obligations are met.
Meeting your tax obligations

Businesses have come under increased scrutiny by regulators and media in recent years for the underpayment of wages and superannuation contributions in relation to their employees. High profile cases causing embarrassment and reputational damage have made headlines across multiple industries. Both Federal and State regulators have access to more data than ever before and utilise sophisticated data mining and “client profiling” techniques.

Given this highly complex regulatory environment, the risks of errors being detected and reviews being conducted have increased substantially. Our tax specialists can help you navigate the complexities of employment taxes, including PAYG withholding, fringe benefits tax, superannuation contributions, payroll tax and Workcover, and ensure your obligations as an employer are met.
