With seamless integration between HR and payroll systems, data flows efficiently, reducing the burden on SMEs and ensuring more accurate financial information.

Ben Thompson, Founder and CEO of Employment Hero said: “For most industries in Australia, keeping up with the complexities of employment regulation can be difficult, especially regarding payroll. This is particularly challenging for SMEs who are already overstretched and lack the expertise to be aware of all compliance protocols. Employment Hero’s integration with Sage Intacct will be fundamental to supporting Australian SMEs by giving them an easy, clear way to engage with and comply with extensive employment regulations.”

“This includes giving SMEs access to services, via Sage Intacct, that ensure they are adhering to the correct interpretation of all pay conditions, accurate classifications of employees (taking into account the type of work performed during every shift), collecting true time and attendance data and processing this data with the correct pay calculations, pay slips, and correct PAYG tax and superannuation calculations.”
