Hi Scott,

Great to hear you’re doing so well !!

Have your employee fill out a Tax Declaration form (available at newsagents for free). This will enable you to withhold tax from their wages. A copy of this is then sent by you to the ATO. Because the amount of tax deducted will be below $25,000 per quarter, you can include the payments with your BAS, rather than paying monthly.

Get the employee’s super fund details from them, then you can register with that fund as an employer ready for the first payment.

Don’t forget worker’s comp insurance.
