The Long Service Leave Scheme (LSL) allows for subcontractors who work in the construction or cleaning industry to work for different employers and accrue long service leave benefits
As a subcontractor, any employer that you work for must determine whether or not you are to be treated as employed or self-employed for each and every contract. If you are an employee for the purpose of the contract, the contractor will need to operate a PAYG scheme, whereby tax will be withheld from the payments made to you, and super guarantee contributions made on your behalf.
Whether you are the contractor or the sub-contractor, your local AATBS Accountant can help you keep your LSL affairs in order. We have over seven shops and offices across Australia, making us easily accessible to you.
