Single Touch payroll (Payment Summary)
It’s nearly tax time!
Our payroll team are now using Single Touch Payroll (STP) to report your Payment Summary directly to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). This means Perisher Payroll no longer issue paper payment summaries and group certificates at the end of the financial year. Instead you will be able to view your year to date tax and super information by logging in to myGov and accessing the ATO online services. What this means for you at tax time is that you will be able to view your income statement directly through myGov and receive a notification when your income statement is ‘tax ready’. More information and links to set up your myGov account can be found at the link below:
Do Good - EpicPromise: Zero Waste to Landfill
In line with our ‘Do Good’ value, Smiggins fitters have broken down 50 old spring boxes (lifting equipment on T-bars) and separated useful parts to be kept and reused as well as recycling the remaining parts where possible. The reclaimed spring box parts are used on other T-bars when needed.
This is a great effort by the lift maintenance team at Smiggins and we look forward to seeing more great initiatives to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Another Environmental Award for Perisher!
Perisher has won the Excellence in Sustainability category at the recent Snowy Monaro Business Awards. In 2017 Vail Resorts announced its Commitment to Zero which includes; (1) zero net emissions by 2030, (2) zero waste to landfill by 2030 and (3) a zero net operating impact to forests and habitat.
Since this announcement the team at Perisher, led by the Perisher Environmental department have been working hard to change procedural and operational practices to achieve the commitment to zero. Changes include:
- Increasing the availability of a composting/food organics stream across all operational areas.
- Improved waste diversion systems across all operational areas.
- Expanded a smart straw initiative where only compostable straws will be available, (by request)
- Continued campaigns to prevent litter, including the annual Perisher Clean Up Day, introduction of a “Leave Nothing but Tracks” litter message for resort signs, and inclusion of litter pickup in the Perisher EpicPromise Day in Jindabyne.
- Retrofit thousands of lights to energy-saving LED globes across all resort areas.
Tanya Bishop, Perisher Environment Manager about the Excellence in Sustainability award - “It’s an honour to be recognised for the effort the entire Perisher team makes across all areas of the business as we work together, as a team, towards our Commitment to Zero goals.”
Thank you to everyone for your continued efforts in creating a Zero waste work environment.
