Trust Reviews

The new Trusts Act was passed on 30 July 2019 and will come into force on 30 January 2021. The Trusts Act puts into law duties for trustees and enforces much more transparency around Trust activities. Trustees will have greater compliance requirements going forward and beneficiaries now need to be aware that they are a beneficiary. Our Trust Review service helps you work through these changes and understand your new obligations. For more information and how we can assist click here

 

Payroll Audit

Why should you do a payroll audit?

  • Payroll is often one of the largest expenses within an entity with risk of under or over payment
  • Under New Zealand employment law, the employer is responsible for accuracy and compliance, particularly in accordance with Holidays Act 2003
  • A payroll audit will help you to identify and resolve any potential problems or issues
  • Payroll has become increasingly complex and reliance on software is only as robust as the interpretation of payroll data itself.
