Filling out Employment Form - Some Fields Seem Useless
I often fill out employment forms for family and friends (for those who are English-challenged or just lazy). I’m curious why some questions are there on there - branch address for BSB (why do you need it plus it’s public information that is easily google-able), what bank you’re with (you can tell from the BSB), asking for a letter of compliance for APRA super fund (are they all compliant being APRA regulated?), and super fund address (super guarantee is paid electronically anyway) etc. I’ve worked in payroll/finance, and none of these are really essential.
