What to do on a worker’s first day

What to do on a worker’s first day

When your worker begins working for you there are a few things you will need to do to meet tax and super obligations.

If you haven’t done so already, you need to determine whether your new worker is an employee or contractor; see Employee or contractor.

End of attention

Pay as you go (PAYG) withholding

If you make payments from which withholding is required – for example, wages to employees or payments to businesses that do not quote an Australian business number (ABN) – you must register with the ATO before you first withhold.


When your worker first starts, you need to determine whether they are eligible for the super guarantee and what fund you will make payments to on their behalf.

Fringe benefits tax (FBT)

You need to decide whether you will provide any fringe benefits to your new worker
