At Sword Advisory, we are registered ASIC agents, equipped to handle the ongoing maintenance of your corporate binders and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Our experienced team stays abreast of the latest regulatory changes and requirements, ensuring that your company remains in good standing with ASIC.

From filing annual reports to making necessary updates to your corporate registers, we handle the administrative tasks associated with corporate compliance, allowing you to focus on running your business.

Payroll processing services

Payroll is constantly changing, complex and risky activity which can take up valuable time. Life is too short to do payroll.

We offer comprehensive payroll processing services for your employees on a regular basis. As part of our commitment to quality and compliance, we conduct annual testing of payroll to ensure that minimum conditions are met. If there is a variation from an award or a specific request, we advise seeking legal guidance to ensure compliance with the offer and employment contract before proceeding.

Our payroll services are provided through Employment Hero or Xero payroll software. For non-salaried workers, we utilise timekeeping software installed on employee phones to record accurate time sheets, which you can review and approve. This software also integrates GPS location data to validate that employees are present at the designated work location when logging their time.

We meticulously record the payroll details and provide comprehensive reports for your review and payment processing. With your approval, we handle the payroll lodgement with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and distribute employee payslips accordingly.

Establishment of companies and trusts

We're able to establish a range of business structures involving sole traders, partnerships, proprietary limited companies and trusts.

By strategically combining these different structures, we can help you achieve specific goals related to tax optimisation, inheritance planning, and asset protection. Our team of experienced professionals will work closely with you to understand your unique circumstances and design a customised structure that aligns with your strategic objectives.

With our in-depth knowledge of business structures and their implications, we can guide you towards the most suitable arrangement that maximizes benefits while minimizing risks. Let us assist you in establishing the ideal business structure to support your long-term success and protect your interests.

Payroll Tax

Payroll tax is an additional tax that businesses are required to pay to their local state or territory revenue department. It becomes applicable when the total payroll costs, including wages, allowances, superannuation contributions, and directors' fees, exceed a specific threshold determined by the respective jurisdiction.

Managing payroll tax can become more complex when you have employees in multiple states and territories.

It is crucial to pay close attention to the payroll tax thresholds, especially if your ordinary wages are approaching or exceeding $850,000. By understanding and considering these thresholds, you can effectively manage your payroll tax obligations and ensure compliance with the relevant regulations.

At Sword Advisory, we can provide guidance and support in navigating the intricacies of payroll tax, helping you stay informed and make informed decisions to optimise your tax planning strategies.
