    We know from processing tens of thousands of pay slips every year an off the shelf timecard solution was never going to cut it. We needed a customisable solution (because no two productions are the same) to move productions from paper timecards to digital timecards.

There is no extra cost – it is included as part of the payroll service fee

For a PAYG we need TAX DEC, EMAIL, BANK, SUPER, PAY RATES and EMPLOYMENT DATES. We’re happy to receive the start data in any format. For Company contractors we need NAME, COMPANY NAME, ADDRESS, EMAIL, BANK, PAY RATES and EMPLOYMENT DATES.

Timetables and pay dates are flexible but new starters should be with TPH 5 days ahead of employees receiving their pay. The majority of timecards should be with TPH by the end of Monday. It is better to send us start and timecards as they are ready rather than waiting until you get them all. That way we can make a start on processing what we have been sent.

Absolutely. We can add late people at any point during the payroll process. Depending on how late it can be good to create a stragglers batch so your main batches can be locked.

The basic payroll process is the same, but we run separate batches for Crew, Cast & Stunts and Extras as it’s easier for productions to lock and approve their payroll this way. On big productions crew batches can be split into multiple batches eg On-Set, Construction, Off-Set, 2nd Unit etc which is easier for productions to check and approve and is quicker than trying to do this for a very large batch.

Generally, allow 24 hours but it will be quicker if you send us the information piece by piece rather than all the new starts and timecards together. Turnaround may depend on volume

Yes, up until we create and send the EFT file. Once this is sent, we cannot pull the file from the bank. Generally, once you lock the batch and we run our invoice and final reports no more changes should be made.

Batch files send to the bank are still processed over-night with a strict 6:00pm cut-off. There is no same-day batch file processing available yet. If you need us to pay someone instantly, we need to do this manually and will attract a $50 per person processing fee. If this person is already part of a batch file and this has been sent to the bank, a new pay entry will be required for the same day payment you wish us to process.

Payslips are emailed as soon as possible after payments have been made.

A change of employment status, an overpayment – sometimes things don’t quite go to plan – we can reverse and rerun, fixing errors to get to the right outcome.

TPH paymasters are always available during business hours to assist.
