NZPPA’s Payroll Practice Guide

The NZPPA Payroll Practice Guide is a payroll resource developed by payroll experts for payroll people. It is written in plain language from a payroll perspective and is full of practical examples, checklists and important points to keep in mind when you are working with and processing payroll.

The NZPPA payroll practice guide is a payroll reference and does not try to cover other non-payroll activities. It also does not cover all payroll situations outside the scope of legislation but does provide advice on how many of these areas can be effectively managed.
