We’ve put together a definitive guide to help you understand more about STP and what it means for your business. This will take you step by step through the process and how to set it up. If you’re familiar enough with what’s required, you can hea don over to our Single Touch Payroll webpage to jump right in.
Human Resources are the people that make your business what it is. They are employees of the business, but more than that, they are your culture and talent. Human resources are exactly that, a resource that business leans on to provide service, knowledge and experience. This leads to a better product for your company and overall customer satisfaction.
Managing human resources is critical to the success of any business. The management of human resources encompasses training, policy structure, working rights and various employee benefits and reprimands. Running a business with a strong focus on HR improves morale and employee retention.

Even the pay rates and pay items can be specified directly on the timesheet (subject to permissions).
