If you work as a Payroll Professional there are several ways you can join APPNZ:

Professional Associate


A Professional Associate, Payroll (PPA) is recognised for their professional expertise and experience in being able to demonstrate that they are qualified to process and manage payroll effectively.


The guidelines set out the criteria and the benefits of being a member.


If you apply and are approved, then there is an annual fee of $300.00 + GST per year, of which $5.00 + GST goes to the APP Benevolent fund - which has been created to assist Associates in financial hardship.

Accredited Professional Associate


An Accredited Professional Payroll Associate (APPA) also works through a knowledge assessment to show they have in depth knowledge of payroll processes. Accredited Professional Associates can then choose to be listed on the public directory on this website.


The investment for being a APPA is $450 + GST for your initial application and first year and then $300 + GST per annum from year 2. If you are already a Professional Associate and apply, then there is a one off fee of $150 + GST.


APPNZ will be launching the Accreditation process in late 2017 for Payroll Professionals.

Chartered Associate
