Workplaces are becoming more globalised with employees traveling overseas frequently. There is a need across businesses for well-trained payroll personal who are knowledgeable and can keep accurate payroll systems. The Diploma of Payroll Services will equip you with skills you need.
This qualification reflects the job roles of workers who perform payroll administration and payroll management tasks in a variety of industries. It includes establishing payroll systems and using them to perform sometimes complex tasks, including preparing salary packaging arrangements and additional allowances, processing superannuation payments, and processing employee terminations.
Individuals in these roles apply solutions to a range of often complex problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources, including relevant legislation and taxation systems. They apply initiative to plan, coordinate and evaluate their own work and provide guidance to others within defined guidelines.
Persons providing a business activity statement (BAS) service for a fee or other reward must be registered by the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) and this qualification is currently cited as meeting the TPB education requirements for registration as a BAS agent. Other requirements apply, including a designated period of experience. If registration is granted, the TPB may also impose a condition on registration. Persons seeking BAS agent registration should check current registration requirements with the TPB, as registration requirements are reviewed regularly.
