Session 8.1: Tax management of worker costs

Engaging Workers Stream

Understanding how to manage additional employment tax costs can have a great impact on an organisation. This session will focus on the range of taxes and reporting requirements and how they may apply including:

  • Summary of remuneration taxes – what needs to be “managed” and what is “manageable”
  • How do different revenue laws (eg income tax, superannuation, payroll tax) alter or extend the meaning of “employee” or otherwise tax payments to contractors?
  • What other requirements apply?
  • Trigger points and thresholds
  • Risk points for directors of employer companies
  • Potential concessions and approaches to mitigate exposure and
  • Issues on the horizon.
