Shadow Payroll Assist

Shadow Payroll Assist

KPMG's shadow payroll solution automates compliance with Australian employment tax and Single Touch Payroll obligations for employees paid overseas.

KPMG can help automate the payroll reporting required for employees paid from overseas.

Employers of foreign nationals working temporarily in Australia often continue to pay them from their home country payroll, or split payrolls.

Under such arrangements, employers need to consider how to manage their Australian tax and reporting obligations.
