Payroll & staff underpayments affect you even if Xero, QBO or MYOB say it’s easy

Payroll Training Courses Online using Xero, MYOB & QuickBooks Online - underpayment of staff can be fixed with a payroll audit

It seems to be the season for companies admitting that they’ve underpaid their employees. Bunnings admitted to underpaying employees for 8 years, Woolworths has underpaid over 6,000 employees, Celebrity Chefs have been caught underpaying and even the City of Fremantle will shell out half a million in back pay to underpaid staff!

The scariest news article I read was in the Sydney Morning Herald where dozens of small businesses were caught underpaying staff! It was revealed by the Fair Work Ombudsman as a result of audits they performed on cheap Sydney eateries  which are EVERYWHERE! Here’s what you can do about it

Sage One Training Course Workbook – Launch Price

Sage One Accounting Training Course Manual and Workbook - Daily Transactions, data entry, AR & AP

Sage One is a relative newcomer to the cloud accounting software space but it has the backing of a massive company in the enterprise accounting (or ERP space). 

With the aggressive and smart marketing machine that Xero is, it’s little wonder they would get the attention of larger accounting software publishers like Sage. Sage One is a logical place for the software giant to get business customers while they are small and then upgrade them all the way.

Announcement: New! Course Funding for MYOB AccountRight Training Courses

Learn accounting, office administration, payroll and digital marketing for $20 per week

The dollar is tanking, trade is down, house prices are still going down, consumer spending is the lowest for a decade, wage growth is slow! It sounds pretty bad when you read the news and business articles isn’t it?

One thing I’ve noticed for sure is that course prices are going down and competition is increasing, not just from other physical training centres in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth but also larger US and overseas companies who will promise anything to make a sale!

We’ve always prided ourselves on offering low course prices direct to students and now we’ve gone a step further.

MYOB Payroll Administration Essentials Training Courses

One thing is essential when you operate a small business with staff — that is your payroll obligations. I wrote about a hairdressing salon owner a few months ago who told me how easy payroll was to manage using a printed timesheet book. However, most tech-savvy people prefer to use software. 

MYOB Essentials is targeting payroll management. They provide a cheap and easy online software package that is preferable for most people to using a manual book or spreadsheet. However, MYOB Essentials is different to MYOB AccountRight. Continue reading MYOB Payroll Administration Essentials Training Courses

Learn Xero in less than 5 days

Learn how to master Xero in less than 5 days

Xero is complicated, let’s be honest. I know that Xero tell you the software is beautiful and simple to use but in reality it’s accounting software and if accounting software was easy then everyone would have their BAS’s lodged on time and have no credit risk issues.

It also depends on what kind of past experience you’ve had with accounting and bookkeeping work, but there is a way to up-skill in Xero quickly.

How Are You Managing Rostering, Timesheet, Wages, PAYG, Super?

Manual Wages book and timesheet from the 1890's Cork City Archive - PAYG Super rosteringYou could use a wages book

I RECENTLY SPOKE WITH the owner of a hairdressing salon who’s been in business for over 18 years (at various different businesses). This woman has ALWAYS used a manual wages timesheet system.

Our team are exploring typical rosters and problems which occur in the payroll processing, and as such, we’re also exploring all the different ways that wages are managed.

The manual wage processing that this hairdressing salon owner uses is very similar to this timesheet tracking system from the late 1890’s and she seems to be quite efficient at it. When I explore the process she uses I can see why business owners would prefer not to spend the money, but if things got busy or tricky and staff numbers are high and hours varied, then a computerised system is definitely more “systemised”.

Computerised Time Sheet Software

I wrote recently about popular time-tracking apps for Xero (also QuickBooks Online) and how they help you manage the time that you spend on various work projects as a professional service provider (like website design, marketing and even bookkeeping) and in the next couple weeks we’re going to explore time sheet management software like Tsheets and Deputy. Not only are they good for scheduling your staff but they can help you keep track of when they sign on and sign off for work.

I was recently talking with someone who uses Deputy as an employee and they described the experience like signing in on a bundy clock! The particular person I spoke to didn’t enjoy the regimen of doing it but it makes perfect sense from the business owners perspective so they have a very tight record of time worked.

MYOB Essentials Accounting, Credit Management & Payroll Courses COMBINED

myob-essentials online training course live logoYOU COULD CALL IT a New Years Resolution that we’ve managed to tick off already! Early January 2018 I promised that EzyLearn would make the MYOB Essentials Courses available with our traditional MYOB AccountRight Courses and that offer is NOW available as a COMBO OFFER — see our Bookkeeping Academy page for the details.

We have 4 MYOB Essentials Courses available (MYOB Essentials Accounting, Daily Transactions, GST/BAS & Reporting AND MYOB Essentials Payroll Course) and it’s a popular course for those wanting a good payroll solution without spending the earth.

MYOB Essentials seems to tick the boxes for most small businesses

Our MYOB Essentials course seems to cater to small business for the following reasons:

  • It enables businesses to keep track of quotes and convert them to sales invoices
  • It includes bank feeds for faster, more accurate and less stressful end of month/quarter reporting
  • You can work out the allocation of GST paid and received for quicker BAS reports
  • Included is Payroll to manage the sometimes complex compliance requirements faced by small businesses

And here’s an excerpt from the MYOB Essentials website:

Features of MYOB Essentials cloud accounting software in our income, expenses, GST, & Payroll Online Course

MYOB Essentials has a well-placed price

MYOB also seem to have the pricing at just the right level to not hurt the wallet of small business owners. Xero is now powering ahead with constant features updates (and that puts regular pressure on us to continually create Xero Course updates — which we LOVE doing!) to justify a higher price as they hurtle along on their journey of being a quasi-ERP system using integrated apps in their marketplace.

QuickBooks Online, on the other hand, use an ongoing cheap price special offer to attract new users and use an Australian-based payroll services provided to provide very sophisticated advanced payroll features while keeping the total price low.
