Transferring Employees

Hi

We have a new business restructure which happened this FY. I transferred all the employees bar one (who will remain with company 1), the remainder were all transferred over with entitlements to company 2 and all has been well from there.


Just about to terminate the employees that were transferred to company 2, in company 1 and thought perhaps i best ask if that is the right thing to do? I just had a doubt as I was about to do it.

Any advice would be wonderful


Thank you in Advance

    Hi @HLJ

    Does the new business (company 2) have a new/separate ABN from Company 1?

    How did you transfer the employees from one company to another? What happened to the employees in company 1 after they were transferred? ie. did you just stop creating pay runs for them?

    Hi Rav

    Yes, a different ABN for Company 2

    I transferred them across as advised using export lists.


    I stopped paying them in the Company 1 and began paying them in Company 2

    Ok cool, thanks for that. Then yes you should be fine to go ahead and terminate them under Company 1. Doing so will finalise them under Company 1's ABN and set them to tax ready in MyGov for the earnings accrued under that entity.

    Terminate them as of the date of their last pay
