Are you paying family members properly?

I received a call from the child of a newsagency owner recently wanting to know how to handle them not being paid appropriately.

Their parents pay them in cash for a full time role. No tax. No super. No leave entitlements.

While this seemed like a good idea at the time, now that they are considering a home loan they have no employment records on which to base the application.

Family members who are not shareholders need to be paid according to the award, m accurately and on the books.
