About Payroll Courses

A payroll training course will teach you the fundamentals of payroll services such as tax calculations, preparing monthly and yearly financial statements as well as handling superannuation and annual leave for employees. The course material includes detailed learning materials, assessments, online support and certification upon completion.

Education Requirements

A Diploma of Payroll Services (FNS50417) or a Certificate IV in Payroll is a common requirement for all entry-level payroll officers to possess. Registered training organisations (RTO), universities and TAFE also offer payroll training in many cities around Australia such as Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. However, enrolment at some training institutions may be subject to entry requirements.

Why Learn Payroll?

A short course on payroll training can hugely impact on your chance of employment or advancement in your career. It is an essential part of any Australian business given the regulation of the ATO and other governing bodies. Companies need to stay on top of payroll functions that include things like GST, PAYG, BAS and activity statements.

This course content provides you with an invaluable skillset steemed from several topics such as payroll management, payroll administration, establishing payroll systems as well as computerised accounting systems. Below are some of the technical skills learnt from payroll courses.

  • Payroll systems experience
  • Accounting software such as Xero and MYOB Payroll
  • Employment law and tax system
  • Excel
  • Salary packaging

and many more!

In addition to technical skills, there are units of competencies regarding customer service, legal and intrapersonal skills, that will round out your capabilities as a payroll professional. It’s the ideal training package for current (and future) payroll professionals. It’s also great for independent bookkeeping professionals who are looking for a way to formalise their expertise in payroll services.

Delivery of Payroll Courses in Australia

There is a range of flexible online study options available. If you are looking to start a career as a payroll officer, then a great way to build a foundation of knowledge should be through an online course. Payroll offices and bookkeepers need to continually stay up to date within the financial services industry in Australia, as laws, taxes and superannuation are always changing. A payroll course can be done on a part-time or full-time basis, depending on your preference. A payroll services course could also lead to other professional careers such as a payroll manager, BAS agent, accounts clerk or even an independent practitioner.
