Holiday Pay – understanding your holiday pay compliance risk (1 May)

The challenges to implement the Holidays Act 2003 are pervasive across a large number of New Zealand organisations. On the surface the Holidays Act requirements are easy to understand, however they can be challenging to implement and systemise. When payroll policy, processes, data, knowledge and systems are not aligned employers can face considerable time and effort to remediate, and also go back six years to recalculate historical holiday pay owing to current and ex-employees.

This webinar will provide practical tips to assessing your holiday pay compliance risk and guidance on how to redress any past non-compliance and ensure prospective compliance.

FBT – Fringe Benefit Tax (15 May)

 This webinar will focus on FBT compliance including:

  • Key considerations for employers in respect of FBT on motor vehicles, supported with observations from Inland Revenue’s 2018 Interpretation Statement.
  • Group life insurance.
  • Minimising FBT through optimising exemptions and attribution of benefits.
  • Lessons learnt from Inland Revenue audits, particularly in relation to policies and procedures.
  • Complexity of calculations.

This webinar will provide coverage of all the core legislation considerations, along with an overview of areas that have undergone significant change in recent times. Real life case studies will be, used to illustrate.
