We want to thank Westpac for allowing us to use their new business hub in Christchurch to run a FREE payroll course for Christchurch business owners last Friday. It was a huge success and from the feedback we received, very helpful to Christchurch employers. We’ve run these courses in the Wellington area before but this was the first time we have taken it to Christchurch. Unfortunately we had to turn attendees away in the last week when we reached our maximum but don’t worry we’ll be doing it again in the New Year.
The course covered the essentials of employers obligations and payroll legislation, how not to get in trouble with the IRD and the payroll choices available for small businesses. We even helped some of the attendees solve their payroll issues. SmartPayroll will be running these FREE courses as much as we can throughout 2012 in all the main centres and we’ll let you know when and where as soon as the dates are confirmed.
