Super easy payroll, designed for small companies

We know how stressful payroll can be for businesses like yours. Dealing with traditional payroll software can be tedious and time consuming. Whether it’s forgetting to update a tax code, not putting a pay rise through on time, or simply inputting the wrong figures by accident, payroll is all too often the source of needless administrative headaches.

But when you use integrated HR and payroll, these worries are a thing of the past! Why?

Because all of your people information is already in place, and readily available for you to run your payroll stress free, and in less time than it takes to make your favourite coffee!

3-step payroll that literally takes five minutes

  • Automated emails, alerting staff to new payslips on the system

  • Allocate staff to cost centres, with no extra accounts time needed
