It’s a little unusual to pay someone on work experience. However, if that work experience person was paid, and I assume that he/she would be paid a minimal amount, and not for long period of time, then I would suggest that you open an account in expenses and call it ‘temporary’ or ‘casual’ labor. No PAYG Withholding tax is taken out, and the amount does not go through payroll.
