    Default Pay discrepancy - unfair?

    I think I'll just have to suck this one up and get over it.

    thanks all for replying, I appreciate the frank responses and feel much better about this issue.
    Honestly, if you feel you are better at your job and you're already qualified, I would seriously consider looking into public practice certificate or at the very least registering as a tax agent and start building up your own client base. You could start with your friends and relatives and go from there. I did this myself about 5 years ago and my client base grew exponentially - friends with business started sending their employees my way, other people were referred to me through friends of friends... So as well as being a practice manager in my family accounting firm and earning a salary, I now have my own firm, and have doubled my income. If you believe you're capable, just go for it. Getting a PPC takes less than a year.

    thanks. tbh I don't think I want to do this kind of work forever. which really just underscores I guess how silly my prior complaining was.

    after 10 years in tax I am ready to move on. ideally I'd like to go do a finance role within a company, preferably something within the creative field.

    I am also a CA and am surprised you can't work this out yourself if you are also a CA...

    Let's say you both work 20 hours per week for ease of calculating. Your hourly rate is $39 (rounded) and his hourly rate is $50. He has to pay his super out of the $50 so we need to compare with your rate incl super.

    Your rate inc super is $42.70.

    Annually ex adj for leave for you - $44,408
    For him - $52,000

    Add on your extra 4 weeks annual leave and two weeks sick leave and you are at an annual amount of $49,532

    This is also assuming his rate is $50 ex gst per hour and not $50 inc gst which would make you better off.

    I have done these calcs on my phone so could be off a tad but I hope this helps you see you aren't that much worse off..

    I think she said he's now a casual employee earning $50 per hour. So no GST and his super would be on top of this

    You can still use the same principle I provided and calculate the difference as you have leave and he doesn't... Sorry for trying to help... Guess next time I shouldn't help as its rude..
