What is the NZPPA National Payroll Week?

National payroll week is for the purpose of raising awareness of the important role payroll plays in the everyday lives of the NZ workforce, business and the wider community.

  • Payroll is one of the most highly regulated operations of any business.
  • Compliance with a complex legislation, terms and conditions of employment and business policy is critical in payrolls success.
  • Payroll is an extremely important component of every worker’s life. Yet the processing of this crucial transaction is something many employers and workers take for granted.

Despite these challenges, payroll professionals calculate each pay accurately and on time, every time. For this, we salute all payroll professionals during National Payroll Week 2013.

National Payroll Week will become an annual event for NZPPA because it links with one of the fundamentals aims of NZPPA the “Recognition of payroll professionals”.


This Year’s Theme is: Become a fan of your local “Payroll Superstar”

  • Your Payroll Professional not only makes sure you get paid every pay date but they also collect, contribute and deposit more than 70% of our country’s operating budget, money that pays for schools, hospitals, roads and the Kiwi way of life.

They are also a Superstar by doing the following:

  • Managing one of the largest costs a business has (being labour costs).
  • Ensuring all legislative requirements are being met and keeping up with the changes.
  • Developing processes and practices to pay employees on time and correctly.
  • Providing a wealth of employee information for the business to use in effectively managing its employees.
  • Being your onsite SME on all payroll matters for advice and support of the business and its employees.
