Description

We are moving into an age of rapid change. Technology is changing the way we do business at all levels.

It’s really a case of Evolve or Die for almost every business. It’s all too easy to keep your head in the sand and call it a fad, but the reality is, if you don’t embrace technology, your competitors will. And we’re not talking about current competitors… we’re talking about innovators, kids, 3rd world countries... in fact anyone with access to the internet can build a global business and steal the business from under your nose.

In this breakfast we have brought together experts to help you embrace these innovations.

From how you do your HR, payroll, transactions and manage your business, right through to marketing, sales and customer relationships. This seminar will give you the insights and tools to embrace technology and get ahead of the pack.

So register today and get the insight and clarity of how technology can supercharge your business now.





The Presenters:




Marianne Wichman


Are you prepared for the ATO’s STP? Doing nothing is not an option!

Marianne Wichman, Attaché for Accounting Business Solution Software in conjunction with Lainie Alexander, Australian Tax Office (ATO)

The ATO’s introduction of Single Touch Payroll represents the largest change to government mandated payroll requirements in Australia’s history, and is another chapter in the ATO’s drive towards efficiency through digital change and the Internet. All businesses that employ anyone (full time or casual) will be affected. Single Touch Payroll will bring a range of reporting obligations together in one place. It will align reporting obligations to existing payroll process - no matter how employee pay arrangements are structured.

Medium businesses with 20 or more employees MUST have these changes implemented by 1 July 2018 – no rainchecks – and only 4 months away. Marianne Wichman from Attaché Software, a major Australian provider of payroll and business systems to medium businesses in Australia and New Zealand will present in conjunction with Lainie Alexander from the ATO to explain in simple terms the “how” of Single Touch Payroll and how it will work in practice. DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION!

With over 25 years’ experience in payroll software, Marianne Wichman is helping medium sized businesses to improve their efficiency through new technology and internal systems. Lainie Alexander is the Single Touch Payroll Stakeholder engagement director at the ATO and she will provide an overview of Single Touch Payroll and information on what you can do to get ready for 1 July 2018.
