Onboarding new employees has never been easier

It’s always exciting when new employees start, but in the past, more employees meant more paperwork for employers.

With the release of employee onboarding in Employment Hero, employers can say goodbye to the paperwork associated with hiring new employees. Employee onboarding lets employers manage the onboarding process from start to finish efficiently.

How does it work?

Getting started with employee onboarding couldn’t be easier. Simply log in to Employment Hero via the QuickBooks Online Portal, click on the “Employee menu” –> “Start Employee Self Setup”

Enter some basic employee details and click “Save”

Once you click save, employees will be sent an email to enter their details.

You’ll be sent an email once employees have completed their setup and from there, you’ll be able to review and complete the employee setup, ready for the next pay run! Happy Days.

What information can employees complete?

In addition to providing their standard contact details, employees can enter all the details they need to get paid including:

  • Personal details
  • Bank accounts
  • Super funds (including SMSF)
  • Emergency contact details (optional)
  • Qualifications (optional)

All employees need to get started are an email address and a web browser.

What about tax file declaration forms?

 One of the best features about employee onboarding is that it eliminates the need for a paper tax file declaration form. If an employee supplies their mobile phone number, we’ll send them a verification code during the setup process to confirm their identity and once they’re verified, you can submit their details direct to the ATO using the inbuilt SBR lodgement and you’re done.

Employee onboarding is not only the simplest way to onboard new employees, but it also ensures you’ve met your reporting obligations. The best part is that employee onboarding is available right now to all Employment Hero users. As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please contact
