Congratulations on hiring a new team member!
Hiring your first few employees is usually a very rewarding and exciting experience. That said, it can also be quite daunting; the world of payroll and employment relations is certainly complex.
In an effort to make this onboarding process easier for you, this article is intended to summarise:
- The key information you’ll need to obtain from your employee;
- What information you’ll need to provide to us;
- The other steps you’ll need to complete; and
- A few extra useful tips and tricks.
DISCLAIMER: It’s worth noting that we are accountants. We’re not employment lawyers, nor do we have any expertise in human relations. Employment relations law is complicated and small businesses often overlook the many possible pitfalls. Therefore, this article should only be used as an introductory guide, and we certainly recommend seeking proper legal advice when employing your first staff members.
