Many businesses will need to send staff “down under”. Whether you company is involved in mining or agriculture in Australia, or oil and gas work off the coast of New Zealand, both destinations are popular locations for UK companies. They also make excellent locations for basing an APAC regional operation centre. With English as a mother tongue doing payroll business in Australia and New Zealand makes both jurisdictions a more straightforward prospect than other countries in the region. However the availability of instruction in English does not lessen the fact that both countries have complex and comprehensive requirements for payroll to meet. Indeed the UK has learnt from the Antipodeans’ experiences of such schemes as student loans and pensions auto enrolment.
