Payroll for Farmers & Agriculture

Farm payroll
made super easy.

Timesheets, minimum wage top up & payroll in one simple online tool.


We’ll keep you compliant

PayHero ensures that salaried farm staff who work variable hours, or paid based on piecemeal rates, are always paid at least the minimum wage, so you can be sure you’re compliant and your employees are paid fairly.


Save hours of admin time

No more calculations, paper timesheets or manual data entry. Time entries, leave & expenses submitted by your employees from their mobile app show up instantly & automatically in PayHero, ready for processing payroll.


Pay your staff in minutes

Automatically calculate pay and holidays from online timesheets and work patterns. When timesheets and leave are loaded into the pay run, just manage any adjustments and click to run the pay. It’s as easy as that.

Employee Mobile App
Give your team the tools they need to complete key payroll tasks from the palm of their hand.

Timesheets in their pocket
From on the farm, employees can submit timesheets against different work items or cost centres by entering start, end and break times or using the GPS start/stop timer. They can access their old payslips too, so you don’t need to dig them out.

Capture expenses with ease
Expense claims couldn’t be easier. Your employees can take a photo of a receipt, categorise it and submit the expense for approval from their phone.

Easy leave requests
Employees can submit leave requests, check the approval status and balances and see a record of leave already taken and booked in with a simple calendar view.
