Advanced Certificate in Payroll Training Course

Advanced Training Course in Payroll using MYOB, Xero and QuickBooks

In this course we explore the Cafe and Restaurant Industry Award, including minimum wages, annual leave, sick leave and holiday pay. We go deeper into employing contractors and casual staff as well as more complex scenarios that we covered in the Certificate in Payroll Training Course.

Sam Stosan runs a Cafe that employs 5 staff, including 2 full-time staff, some part-time and casual staff. Sam creates a roster each week and has to make sure that the shop is always staffed. Some of his staff get sick and take annual leave so his weekly rostering needs to be accurate and everyone in the business needs to know when they are working, particularly on nights and weekends.

Sam finds this incredibly time consuming and explores rostering software and apps that can help make this part of the work easier.

Sam’s business gets a little more complex than Rick’s Hair Dressing business because he hires some young workers because they’re cheaper and unskilled as well as has staff members with Child Support Debts that need to be collected by the business.

Sam pays his staff using electronic payments using the ABA format so that all employee payments are made in one batch payment.

The bookkeeping for the business is tricky so Sam explores employing a Payroll Officer as a contract bookkeeper and this course goes through the information and obligations when defining whether a staff member is a contractor or employee.
