We have a dedicated team that are passionate about payroll, and work with our customers to create powerful, accurate and streamlined solutions to uncomplicate payroll for organisations of all sizes, industries and complexity. Drawing on the expertise of our people and payroll experts, we’ve put everything you need to uncomplicate your payroll below.

Stay on top of payroll compliance

With the everchanging HR and payroll industry, ensure your systems are up-to-date with current legislation and that you understand your employer obligations in addition to applying these changes to your workforce in a timely manner. To receive these updates, it is recommended to have the members of your HR and payroll team actively engaged in industry newsletters and events. This also includes regularly sourcing information directly from the Fair Work Commission and Australian Taxation Office (ATO), as well as being a member of industry associations like The Australian Payroll Association (TAPS), Australian Payroll Association (APA), New Zealand Payroll Practitioners Association (NZPPA) and Australian HR Institute (AHRI). However most importantly, make sure you circle back to your systems and processes to ensure any new compliance changes are successfully and effectively applied to your organisations technological and process infrastructure.

At Aurion, our team of experts work together to find solutions within the shifting landscape of Australian payroll. We have many avenues for our team to collaborate and engage with industry bodies to ensure the solutions we provide continue to be accurate and compliant.

We have an established “Legislation and Regulation Working Group” which meet regularly to discuss and address the challenges posed by the dynamic and ever-changing legislative and regulation landscape of Australian payroll. This group is comprised of teams across the business of varying backgrounds and skillsets who monitor industry bodies. These industry bodies extend to the Australian Tax Office (ATO), Fair Work Commission and the above mentioned industry associations. Armed with the most up-to-date knowledge and highly skilled at interpreting complex legislation, our Legislation and Regulation Working Group collaborate to source solutions for our software and service offerings to ensure that our customers have the most current, compliant and up-to-date solutions available.

With our dedicated Working Group, we remove the stress from organisations of having to keep on top of the changing compliance requirements while having to interpret technical legislation jargon correctly. Not only that, but we have the specialised skillset internally to provide industry best-practice solutions, advice and guides for how these changes can be applied while incorporating any software related compliance solutions automatically within our regularly scheduled quarterly software updates.

In each iteration of our quarterly software releases, there is always a standing agenda item to review, address, configure and implement legislation and regulation related software solutions. Our team work in an agile environment which allows for the introduction of timely updates, whether this is included in the main release each quarter or a software patch if it is compliance critical. We prioritise keeping our people and payroll solutions compliant, and allowing your team to focus on business-critical operations and not get bogged down in complex and confusing payroll legislation.
