Construction payroll is tricky due to complex award rules, travel allowances, and unique work situations. Construction payroll software steps in to automate calculations and ensure compliance, saving you time and money.

Firstly, it prevents fines by automatically following modern award rules. It also improves accuracy by automating calculations for wages, allowances, deductions and taxes, minimising errors.

Finally, the software streamlines the entire process by automating data entry, integrating with time tracking, and generating reports. This frees up valuable time for HR and payroll staff. Overall, construction payroll software makes life easier by boosting efficiency and saving resources.

The Building and Construction Award (BCA) throws a wrench into construction payroll. Here’s why:

  • Pay and allowances: The BCA dictates minimum wages, penalty rates for overtime and special hours, and various allowances for skills, conditions, or travel. Payroll systems must account for these to ensure employees get paid correctly.
  • Leave and compliance: The award specifies minimum leave entitlements and outlines what needs to be tracked. Payroll processes need to be designed to comply with these leave rules to avoid hefty fines.

In short, the BCA sets the baseline for pay and conditions in construction. Construction payroll needs to consider these factors to guarantee employees are paid fairly and the business stays compliant with regulations.


Cloud payroll systems for construction businesses can automate calculations based on the relevant modern reward, guaranteeing employees receive the correct wages, allowances. This minimises the risk of underpayment and hefty fines for non-compliance.

Payroll solutions can also take data from your timesheet and attendance data accurately capture working hours, including overtime and special working conditions that may trigger higher pay rates under the award. This ensures employees are compensated fairly and simplifies payroll calculations.

By ensuring accurate calculations and adherence to modern award regulations, construction payroll software minimises the risk of underpaying employees and eliminates the need for back-payments.

Payroller is an STP-enabled software that automatically submits payroll information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) – through a secure cloud network – whenever you perform a payrun. Payroller helps you to track, manage and record your payroll while safely sharing that information (and staying compliant) with the ATO.

As a truly one-stop payroll solution, you can manage staff roster, invite your accountant, bookkeeper or BAS agent and even make Super contribution (Beam) on Payroller.

Absolutely, you may share your account and even set different access permissions.
