Audit & Compliance

Is your payroll operating as well as it should be?
Getting your payroll wrong can be a costly experience. It could mean disgruntled employees or being offside with the IRD or MBIE. Two things you definitely want to avoid! As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure that your company meets the regulations set out in NZ’s payroll legislation. However, keeping up with legislation can feel overwhelming and confusing. Instead, let the Alxemy team do the heavy lifting for you. Our Audit & Compliance services ensure that your payroll processes are compliant, efficient and correct. Our team can provide you with an independent, expert view of your state of compliance, along with solutions to potential issues and suggestions for improvement.

Advisory

Payroll can be confusing. And you certainly don’t want to get it wrong! Wouldn’t it be great to have a real human at the end of the phone or email for advice and support? There can be, at Alxemy. If you need some payroll advice, it’s no problem! Our expert team are here to help. If you have an issue, simply give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you. Then, we can come up with a solution that actually works. So, if you need advice on the right system for your organisation, how you can streamline your processes or troubleshooting a particular issue, then we are here for you.

Managed Systems Administration

Every organisation is unique and has its own processes at play. Payroll weaves its way through these processes and within the organisation’s wider Human Capital ecosystem. Without a tailored and streamlined approach to managing and maintaining these systems, processes and tasks, this ecosystem may fall short and productivity, performance, and compliance will be compromised. Managed Systems Administration delivers strategic support, guidance, and management of these processes organisation wide. Beginning with a discovery session, we map out all moving parts of your HCM ecosystem, we then strategise and implement an improvement and maintenance plan to ensure compliance and functionality across the board. Don’t let your systems sink, stay moving forward with our Managed Systems Administration.
