Switch from IMS Payroll to PayHero

Stop Holidays Act & payroll compliance headaches by switching your old IMS Payroll system to PayHero. Converting is free & easy and we'll help you every step of the way.

MYOB has identified issues with IMS Payroll and six of its other payroll systems, which could affect some calculations, including leave rates and entitlements. In some situations, leave rates or entitlements for employees may not have been calculated in line with the New Zealand Holidays Act 2003. Find out more.

Why switch to PayHero?


Take compliance seriously

PayHero was built to follow the 2017 Holidays Act guidance published by MBIE. We store annual leave in weeks and review recent work patterns when leave is taken to determine the right entitlements.


Automatically update your accounts

Seamlessly send your payroll transactions to Xero and apportion wage costs to different account codes or tracking categories.


Cloud-based payroll

Discover the security & benefits of a cloud-based payroll system. Any changes to payroll and labour laws are automatically applied. No downloads or time consuming updates.


Put your payroll on Autopilot

Set and forget your payroll. PayHero Autopilot will automatically run your payroll each pay day. Just review the details we see you and approve the pay from any device without logging in.


Streamline employee expenses

Let employees submit expense claims and photos of receipts from their mobile app. Quickly review and approve requests to refund employee expenses.


Let employees manage their own info

Give employees self-service access to submit timesheets, view leave balances & pay history, request time off, submit expense claims and update their details.


Free support

Our friendly Wellington-based support team is available by phone or email to help you out whenever you need it.


Throw out the old filing cabinet

Securely store employment contracts, IRD forms, work permits, licences and other important documents on each employee’s profile.
