Common Payroll Mistakes!

Payroll is

Always Changing

Throughout my time in HR, I’ve come across many scenarios that led to the lawful dismissal of employees due to misconduct, harassment, bullying, theft and many other reasons.

Consider these points the next time you conduct a payroll health check



Employees must be classified correctly. When an employee is incorrectly classified, your business may be subject to audits, significant penalties and lawsuits.

Protect yourself and the Company

Outsource to a Licensed Provider, understand the guidelines, or undergo professional training, to make sure you understand and correctly apply the rules when paying employees and meeting your payroll obligations


Garnishments and child support orders can be difficult to implement, especially when employees have multiple wage garnishment orders. You are responsible for tracking and prioritising each employee’s wage attachments.

Payroll Software

We at HR Pay Solutions believe that Outsource providers and or in-house payroll representatives should understand how calculations are made, not only to ensure accurate input and compliance, but also so you can explain to employees how their pay is calculated.


Single Touch Payroll, Tax File Declrations, PAYG and Payroll Tax are some of the few reporting requirements businesses need to make in terms of Payroll. When it comes to reporting, businesses should ensure they understand their obligations
