Payroll Information

Payroll Information

When you are placed on a temporary assignment with one of our client companies we are responsible for your pay. Your pay is processed every second Tuesday for the previous fortnight’s work and is dependent on us receiving correctly authorised Timesheets by 9.30am on the Tuesday following the week worked. A bank transfer will appear in your bank account within 1-2 working days from transmission date on your payslip. Payslips are emailed for immediate access.


You will be taxed according to the Australian Taxation Department (ATO) guidelines. You must complete and return to us a Tax File Number Declaration (TFN) within 7 days of commencing employment through ERA Personnel so that you are taxed at the appropriate rate. If we do not receive your TFN declaration by the time your first pay is processed, you will be taxed at the highest marginal rate until your signed declaration is received.

Payment Summaries

Payment Summaries or Group Certificates are emailed to employees after their final pay is generated. Payment summaries are required for your annual tax return with the ATO. We provide the ATO with electronic notification of all employee earnings at the completion of the financial year. Please notify us of any changes to your address or contact details to ensure that we send your payment summaries to the correct address.

The FirstChoice Employer Super Plan is managed by Colonial First State Investments Limited and all information, statements and correspondence is provided by the fund manager.
