Payroll at Achieve
A great option for contractors running through an employment agency.
Our salary package gives you a simple and reliable payroll solution, whilst making sure all your payroll needs are taken care of, and includes your required professional insurances, superannuation, and payroll obligations.
Our salary package options are customisable and are designed to minimise your tax and maximise
your take-home pay. You can opt to include a vehicle, LAFHA, other claimable work-related items, and rental property expenses (if applicable).
Salary package options starting from 1.25% are based on payment to you once we have received payment from your Agency.
