Steve joined the Carbon team in 2018 as our payroll manager. Payroll was previously part of our bookkeeping division, but due to growth, we launched Carbon Payroll as a division in itself. Steve leads the team with all things payroll, ensuring clients are paid on time, every time.
Steve has a wealth of financial management experience from working within a number of industries including financial services, real estate and property development. He grew up working for his family’s businesses and moved across Australia to help build the company. It’s now a well-known business, but it was time for Steve to experience the world outside of a family business. He has been working within the private sector for the last 18 years, overseeing the financial function of a public unlisted company during his role as a group financial controller.
Business tips from Steve
Regularly review your payroll processes. Payroll is an ever-changing industry with new legislations coming into play throughout the year. Payroll is probably the most scrutinised and unforgiving part of business; if you get it wrong, you can really pay for it. You’re dealing with other people and their money.
