Apprentices value calculations

There are plenty of costs to consider when employing an apprentice. These include:

  • processing of wages, super payments and leave balances
  • maintaining a record of leave entitlements
  • sending regular PAYG remittances to the ATO
  • sending annual PAYG certificate of earnings to the apprentice
  • keeping time and wage records for seven (7) years

Using HIA Apprentices to manage your apprentice

One of the most common objections to using a GTO is that it's too expensive. However, some recent research has revealed it can be more expensive to do it yourself.

There is one aspect that is a constant whether you use a GTO or not and that's the unavoidable costs as mentioned above. Wages and on-costs must be paid to the apprentices and the amount is exactly the same for both HIA Apprentices and the business that hires direct. The difference is the margin charged to deliver the services versus the total cost of DIY apprentice management.

Costs associated with hosting an apprentice through HIA is 100% tax deductable.
