What our clients say

  • Rob is a lifesaver in helping us with the accounting side of our business. We set up our Medical Practice four years ago as no-one in our office had expertise in this area. We would be lost without Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants. The personal service is probably the one thing that surprised me most. I can speak to Rob any time I need and he rarely laughs at my stupid questions. The Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants team are experienced, trustworthy, reliable and friendly.

    - Gayle Field, Ferngate Medical Centre
  • Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants provided guidance and expertise to help our business perform financially. Originally, being new to smaller business management, the level of patience and ability to explain accounting practices was invaluable to us. Providing a genuine, professional and friendly service and understanding my business has been fantastic. Last, being able to ring and be put straight through without a question... awesome!

    - Karen Azzopardi, Glen Cromie Caravan Park
  • Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants has helped administer the set up of our business including implementing the Xero Accounting package. They have offered us advice on the set up of a family trust and have helped us throughout the process. They offer expert advice with exceptional service in maintaining open lines of communication whenever necessary.

    - Wodonga Caravan and Cabin Park, Tight Sites P/L
  • Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants has provided great service by delivering forward planning initiatives to keep us ahead of current economic trends. They respond to all our questions in short time frames with concise information relating to those queries. The level of professionalism and forethought given to all queries and the great relationship between our business and Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants has far exceeded our expectations. They have all the information we ever require and help us, not only now, but into our future. They are a great bunch of people.

    - Clinton Parmenter, Maverick Welding
  • My company has worked closely with the ‘RK’ organisation for approx. 20 years. We have always found their staff to be a pleasure to work with. Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants have advised us on many matters including tax/property/retirement/acquisitions along with many other matters, including personal issues. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any company requiring professional accounting services, they have handled our business with dedication and care for many years and will do so for many more.

    - Andrew Norris, Managing Director, Interfab
  • Rogerson Kenny’s approach to cloud accounting has revolutionised the way we manage our business. We have tens of transactions flowing through our system daily and they've been time consuming to track in the past. We were sometimes months behind.

    Now when we use Xero all our accounts are reconciled daily and I have up to the minute dashboards on where we sit financially. Ironically, the value of this real-time data is priceless! I can make better financial decisions faster and we can bill clients within seconds.

    Best of all, our cashflow has improved dramatically - something that was only made possible by RK. They're our indispensable partners in business!

    - Ben Dexter, SME Director, Melbourne
  • Our company has dealt with the principals and staff of Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants for 20 years. We have always received prompt and efficient service. In particular we have valued broader advice on strategic planning for future growth that has enabled the company to grow tenfold over this period.

    - Garry Eastman, Chairman, Garratt Publishing
  • I am continually impressed by the excellent service that Rogerson Kenny provides. Every member of staff has been courteous, polite and reliable.  Each time I have received excellent support, and fast professional service.  It has given us peace of mind that all our financial matters are in order. We are a medium size Electrical Contracting company that understands the importance of customer service, and providing specialised technical information.

    - Jenny & Greg Cassidy, Directors, JGC Electrical

Single Touch Payroll


The ATO has now introduced Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018, if you have a headcount of 20 or more employees, you must use Single Touch Payroll-enabled software to report your employees tax and super information to the Australian Taxation Office.

If your headcount is 19 or less you will not need to implement single touch payroll until 1 July 2019.

This short video provides an overview of Single Touch Payroll.
https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Single-Touch-Payroll/
 
You'll need to report the following on or before every payroll pay day:
 
  • employee payments such as salaries and wages
  • pay as you go (PAYG) withholding
  • super information.
 
To find out when you need to report through Single Touch Payroll, you'll need to do a headcount of the number of employees you have on 1 April 2018. Please see the following guidelines from the ATO in regards to how to accurately perform a headcount
https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Single-Touch-Payroll/Get-ready-for-Single-Touch-Payroll/
 

What's changing?

 
  • You may not need to provide payment summaries to your employees at the end of financial year when you report through Single Touch Payroll.
  • Your employees will be able to see their year-to-date tax and super information through myGov.
  • In the future, Single Touch Payroll information will be used to prefill your activity statement.

What you need to do

 
  • Talk to your payroll software provider to find out when your Single Touch Payroll-enabled software will be ready. If you are using XeroQuickbooks Online or MYOB we have been assured that their software already is or will be compliant by 1st July 2018.
  • Ask us at Rogerson Kenny Business Accountants or your external payroll service provider how to get ready.
  • Review your current payroll processes to ensure compliance. We are here to help you review your payroll process to make sure it meets the single touch payroll requirements.
  • Start developing an implementation plan.
