Ensure Compliance and Accuracy With A

Payroll Audit

In recent years there has been greater scrutiny by the Fair Work Ombudsman and Federal and State governments on ensuring organisations are fairly compensating employees and on the accuracy of records that are maintained. Penalties for underpayment of staff have become increasingly severe to highlight the need to be transparent and fair. More and more not-for-profit organisations are choosing to have an independent payroll audit to ensure compliance.

Industries and sectors which have a higher proportion of casual staff or shift workers appear to be at a greater risk of falling foul of the regulations. These include hospitality, retail, manufacturing and healthcare.

Managing payroll can be a daunting task for any organisation, especially not-for-profit entities. Ensuring that your payroll processes are accurate and compliant with the latest regulations is crucial for maintaining the financial health and reputation of your organisation.

At MGI South Queensland, we offer comprehensive Payroll Audit Services designed to help you identify and rectify any discrepancies, ensuring your payroll system operates smoothly and effectively.

Why is a Payroll Audit Necessary?

Payroll audits are highly recommended for medium and large organisations, particularly if you have any concerns about your payroll process. Engaging an independent third party to do an audit can help ensure:

  • Compliance with Regulations: Australian payroll regulations are complex and ever-changing. A payroll audit ensures your business complies with all relevant laws, including pay rates in relation to applicable awards and pay scales, tax obligations, superannuation contributions, and Fair Work regulations.
  • Accuracy in Payments: Inaccurate payroll can lead to overpayments or underpayments, which can cause financial strain and employee dissatisfaction. An audit helps identify and correct these errors.
  • Prevention of Fraud: Regular audits can uncover fraudulent activities or errors in the payroll process, safeguarding your business against potential financial losses.
  • Efficiency and Best Practices: Audits provide insights into your current payroll processes, helping you streamline operations and adopt best practices for efficiency.
