Super Lodgements & PAYG Accounting Services

Payg & Super Lodgements
Hwh Internals Circle

Managing PAYG & Super Lodgements is a critical responsibility for any business with employees. While the concept of Pay as You Go (PAYG) and superannuation lodgements may seem straightforward, the actual calculation and payment process can be quite intricate and time-consuming, particularly for businesses lacking advanced automated systems.

Understanding the nuances of employment taxes is essential, especially when you’re in the process of hiring new staff or planning to expand your team. PAYG & Super Lodgements aren’t just mandatory compliance tasks; they play a significant role in maintaining employee satisfaction and ensuring legal compliance.

For PAYG, as an employer, you are required to withhold a portion of your employees’ wages for income tax purposes and remit these withholdings to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). This process needs careful attention to detail to ensure accuracy in withholdings based on each employee’s earnings and tax bracket.

Similarly, superannuation lodgements involve contributing to your employees’ super funds. These contributions, a percentage of the employees’ ordinary time earnings, are vital for their retirement savings. Staying updated with the current superannuation rates and any legislative changes is crucial for accurate and timely lodgements.

Inaccuracies or delays in PAYG & Super Lodgements can lead to penalties and interest charges, not to mention the potential damage to your business reputation. Therefore, it’s important to have a reliable system or a trusted partner to manage these responsibilities efficiently.

Pay as You Go (PAYG)

PAYG business accounting is a legal requirement for all businesses. It involves withholding amounts from payments to employees, contractors (if they have agreed to it), and businesses or individuals without an Australian Business Number (ABN).

If you’re a new employer you’ll need to register for PAYG withholding, withhold the correct amounts where needed, and make payments to the ATO when required. You’ll need to report on your PAYG payments in your BAS reports and you’ll also need to provide annual PAYG reports to your employees.

Super Lodgements

When it comes to super lodgements, Businesses first need to withhold the compulsory amount of superannuation from their employees’ ordinary time earnings (OTE), which is the salary an employee earns for their ordinary work – not including overtime.

Employers are then required to make contributions to their employee’s superannuation funds at least on a quarterly basis. Failure to do so can mean the business is charged penalties by the ATO.

Why Seek Assistance with Your Employment Taxes?

As you can see, PAYG accounting and super lodgements can be complicated, and failure to complete them correctly and on time can result in penalties. Not to mention, it can be a huge headache! There have also been several high-profile cases in recent years where large Australian companies have failed to pay the correct level of superannuation for employees, causing embarrassment and reputational damage. For a business just finding its feet, a situation like this could have disastrous consequences.

Employment taxes can also get tricky when you’re making payments overseas or hiring overseas employees or contractors. It makes sense to outsource these services or (at the very least) find software solutions which can streamline the process.

We can implement software solutions tailored specifically for your business, that incorporate your unique needs and any industry-specific requirements.

We also offer end-to-end payroll services, which incorporate the calculation of PAYG withholding and superannuation. But your responsibilities as a business don’t end there. You still need to calculate your PAYG and pay superannuation for your employees on at least a quarterly basis.

Most of our clients bundle their employee tax services along with our other business services, such as bookkeeping, BAS, reporting, and business advisory services.
