Cost effective payroll management – you choose what’s best for you

Flat fee margins aren’t everything!  Unlike some of our competitors we tell you upfront that payroll management is a separate component that you need to consider.    With Encore you can choose to use a 3rd party provider OR you can allow us to value add by using our excellent low-cost service.  For a total of 1.35% this service includes PAYG processing with Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance (1.05%) and Workers Compensation insurance (0.3%). PAYG processing will also include salary sacrificing for superannuation and an annual pre-tax claim for a laptop and mobile phone.  Contractors can also have their choice of payment frequency: fortnightly or monthly.  

Super-fast flexible payment processing

Whether you are a PAYG contractor of Encore or use 3rd party to manage your payroll, either way our payment processing is highly efficient and best of all there are no fixed deadlines.  Our dedicated Finance Team process payments every single working day of the week.

Timesheets (and invoices where relevant) received before 12 pm will be processed that day by overnight EFT.  Those after 12pm will go in the following day’s run.  

We also genuinely care for our contractors and will go out of our way to accommodate any special requests you may have.

**This discount applies in specific circumstances.  Please contact us to discuss if you qualify.

***Discounted rate takes effect from the first full pay cycle after the 12 month anniversary of your starting date.  For example. If you are paid monthly and your contract started on 17 July, then the discounted rate would apply to your September pay (for hours worked from 1 August).
