Award Interpretation

We utilise our extensive knowledge of Awards and our Agreement Visualisation Service to determine what your organisation’s employees were entitled to be paid. By carefully analysing the relevant Award provisions, we ensure that your employees receive the correct minimum pay rates and entitlements. This helps to rectify any discrepancies between the payment methodologies used and the actual requirements outlined in the Awards. Our meticulous Award interpretation ensures compliance and fair compensation for your workforce. 

Underpayments Calculation

We compare the data of what has been paid against the minimum pay rates and entitlements that were required for each employee. By identifying any discrepancies between the processed payments and entitlements, we calculate the underpayment dollar value for each employee. This meticulous calculation process ensures that any underpayments are accurately determined and can be rectified. Our goal is to ensure fair and compliant practices by addressing and resolving any wage underpayment issues within your organisation. 

Tax Compliance

We understand the importance of adhering to tax regulations and ensuring accurate withholding and reporting. Our team will review your data to identify any potential tax compliance issues, such as incorrect tax calculations or misclassification of employees. We will rectify these issues, ensuring that your organisation is compliant with tax laws and regulations. By addressing tax compliance concerns, we help mitigate any potential risks and ensure that your payroll operations align with the necessary tax requirements. 


The Payroll Remediation can also extend to superannuation compliance. We know the significance of meeting superannuation guarantee obligations for your employees. Our team will review your payroll systems and data to pinpoint any discrepancies or errors in superannuation payments. We will rectify these issues, ensuring that the correct superannuation contributions are made for each employee. By addressing superannuation compliance concerns, we help ensure that your organisation meets its legal obligations and provides employees with the appropriate superannuation entitlements. Our expertise in superannuation calculations and regulations ensures accurate and compliant superannuation payments. 


Our team will assist in reviewing and organising your payroll records to ensure compliance with record-keeping requirements. We will help discern any gaps or inconsistencies in your record-keeping practices and provide guidance on how to improve them. By ensuring proper record-keeping, we help you maintain a reliable audit trail, facilitate accurate reporting, and demonstrate compliance with relevant regulations and obligations.
