The end of the financial year is fast approaching, as an employer there are a few legal requirements that you must abide by in order to be compliant.

The beginning of a new financial year also brings about changes that come into effect on 1 July, this year we are experiencing significant changes in Superannuation, as well as changes to tax  and penalty rates.

Here are your obligations as an employer at the end of the financial year:

  1. Provide payment summaries to your employees by 14 July.

  1. Send to the ATO a payment summary annual report.
