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. Whether you are planning to run payroll yourself or use an outsource partner our course will provide you with all the key facts you need to know to successfully process payroll in either country.

Overview of payroll processing in France
Currently there is no deduction of income tax through the payroll but there are still many other compliance issues for employers. Collective bargaining agreements are very important in France and these will specify many of the rates of pay to be used. Employers are also liable for a range of payroll taxes and levies, making employer costs very high compared to other countries.

Having attended this course delegates will have confidence that they understand the fundamentals of payroll processing in France, are clear about employer obligations, know what they need to do on both a periodic and annual basis, can answer employee queries and check payslips.
Even if payrolls are outsourced it is still the employers responsibility to ensure all obligations are met and that tax and social security are correctly processed. This course not only gives you the information you need to be compliant but also ensures you know exactly what information should be given to a payroll provider and the various tasks they should be completing on your behalf.

UK Essentials: Statutory Leave and Pay

Like many countries the UK has a range of different types of statutory leave and payments that employees are entitled to receive and cover annual leave, time off and pay for parents, sickness and flexible working. The entitlement, calculating the payments and the treatment of the payments is complex and requires HR and Payroll to work closely together.
Some of the legislation is UK based, others are from the EU but have been gold plated in the UK. In addition this case law whether in the UK courts or the European Courts of Justice have also had an impact for very specific circumstances.

All of which means that payroll teams have a lot of legislation to consider when processing these statutory payments and leave; and what’s more some payroll systems can manage all the appropriate record keeping and calculations whilst others only support part of the requirements and manual calculations and record keeping is required.

This course will give you all the information you need to ensure you understand how to process payments, the interaction between the different types of leave and payments, the records that must be kept, employment rights and the information you must provide to your employees.
