  • payments to the Minister’s Support Fund and Home Endowment Fund

  • Minister leave accrual calculations for Annual Leave, Sick Leave, Study Leave and Long Leave
  • calculations of termination payments
  • online payslip distribution (web based) via a self-service portal
  • assistance with employee contracts and Minister placement documents, through the HR and Industrial Relations departments within Uniting Resources
  • year-end payroll requirements for reporting earnings to the ATO, as well as
  • creating and distributing Payment Summaries (previously known as Group Certificates) for all employees and Ministers.
