JobMaker: Hiring Credit for Employers

Your business may be eligible to receive up to $10,400 per year.
The Government has introduced a JobMaker Hiring Credit to be paid to Employers (and not to be passed onto employees).
 
The payment is an incentive for employers to hire people who have been receiving the JobSeeker Payment, Youth Allowance or Parenting Payment prior to being employed.

Employees won’t be eligible for the JobMaker Hiring Credit while they’re receiving JobKeeper payments. If needed, you can set a stop date for the relevant employee’s JobKeeper payments.

If you employ eligible employees between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021, your business may qualify for 12 months of JobMaker Hiring Credit. View the list of eligibility requirements on the ATO website linked below:

Outsourcing

Five Signs You’re Ready to Start Outsourcing Work:

 

1. You regularly run out of time in your day.

Are you scrambling at the end of each day, constantly pushing tasks to tomorrow’s to-do list? Or damaging the business by bottlenecking projects or payments? You’re adding unnecessary stress to your already busy life, and not maximizing your productivity in the hours you put in.

2. You’re putting off tasks you hate..

You might not be a numbers person, but when you were starting out, you needed to do the finances yourself. Now your business is bigger. Managing the finances is tougher, but more important than ever. Putting them off can leave your business at a standstill, and force your team or your clients to chase you (when you should be there for them). If the tasks you hate are getting left for last or putting pressure on your team, it’s time to share the load.

3. Mistakes are being made:

A missed deadline, an error on a spreadsheet or a botched conversation with a client can have a serious impact on your business. If you’re pushing things off, working slowly on tasks you dislike or burning out from overwork, mistakes are that much more likely.

4. Your business is growing and the tasks are much more complex now:

As a one-person show, it was easy to manage finances, sales, marketing and execution. But now that your business is larger, its needs are that much more complex. And there’s so much more to get done. To keep your growth on track, these challenges require a deeper, specialised expertise to solve.

5. You’re turning down great new projects:

When new projects and opportunities arise, are you filled with excitement—or disappointment, because you can’t take them on? If you’re turning down work because you don’t have time to manage new projects or clients, or because your team is burnt out, it’s time to add additional resources.

Outsourcing Payroll and Accounts Management: COVID19

How a Pandemic highlighted the necessity for remote workers and the benefits of Outsourcing.

When a pandemic hits or disaster strikes…whether it be environmental or business internal. The need for remote and reliable workers becomes vital to the future of the business.

In a pandemic, like other disasters, is where payroll outsourcing becomes a necessity. Many business locations are closed, but the business still needs to operate remotely.

How do people get paid, how does payroll get processed, how do taxes get filed and paid, how do you respond with data to the ATO on a massive number of JobKeeper claims?!

A payroll service provider such as Bilanz for Business can provide solutions to all those problems. We can process payroll remotely. We can distribute the pay via direct deposit, debit cards, or if needed, mail cheques. We, of course, can file and pay all the employment taxes as you would normally…

As part of our support, we provide recommendations on what to do to help the business continue to thrive despite the peaks and valleys. Business’s receive multiple updates, which is critical because of how quickly things are changing.

But perhaps even more importantly, it means almost the entire internal team is thinking about big picture stuff. No one is caught up in the numbers. Instead, they have right in front of them and can make decisions about them that will help the company make it through this difficult time. If you need all hands-on deck moving forward, you would be wise to consider outsourcing your accounting operation amidst this crisis.

Bilanz For Business:
Registered Bookkeepers with ICB

Well first I’ll ask you this: Lets look at your current bookkeeping and accounts management system in place. .. Is this working for you, do you love it? (I assume there’s room for improvement since you’re here researching conversions)

So lets review:

 Jot your answers down as you go – bullet point works.

 What software do you have in place?

 What do you like about it? 

What is it missing? 

What do you desire in a perfect (accounting software) world?  Is it a simplified invoicing system, an accurate inventory report, an easy way to pull sales reports or comprehensive payroll system?? or all of that & more.. 

Make the move:

For a seamless conversion, make sure you use a Xero certified advisor. The cost of installing and bringing the historical data correctly is very meager as compared to its use in the long term. You must use an experienced accountant or conversion specialist to assist in the transition process and make it as smooth as possible.
