Payroll your employees can trust

The Holidays Act is complex, but we’ll make it easier to understand your obligations and for your employees to trust the entitlements and deductions in their pay.

A better way to payroll
Compliant and easy to use payroll software that calculates employee pay, taxes & deductions, and keeps track of employee leave.

Perfect for hourly employees

Track hourly work with ease and automatically calculate pay and entitlements for part time, casual, contract or shift workers. Let staff record hours against different work and cost centres with online & mobile timesheets, or capture exact start and finish times with photo clock in/out or GPS location tracking.


Put your payroll on Autopilot

You can set your payroll to run automatically each payday. We’ll send you an email with all the details and you can finalise the pay there and then without having to login. Too easy!

Payday filing, sorted once and for all

Start payday filing now and never think about PAYE filing again. Payday filing is a piece of cake in PayHero – just connect your account to IRD and we’ll automatically send your payroll information through after every pay.

Public holidays are for relaxing

No more painstaking public holiday calculations or costly payroll errors! Save on paperwork and manual processing by using timesheet history to automatically calculate holiday entitlements for variable hour employees.

Seamlessly manage paid and unpaid breaks

Employees can record breaks on the PayHero time clock app, and PayHero will automatically figure out if the break should be a paid 10-minute rest break or an unpaid 30-minute meal break. Minimise the burden on managers and allow employees to document their breaks themselves.

Update your Xero accounts

Integrate with Xero and automatically send payroll data through to your accounting system. Keep it simple or assign wage costs to different account codes and tracking categories for those who need a more detailed break down.

Payroll that works the way you do

Set up your payroll to be as simple or complex as you need it to be. Easily manage multi-pay frequencies, different pay rates for different work, a combination of hourly and salaried staff, expenses, commissions, bonuses, employee loans and more.

Easy payments

When you finalise a pay, we generate an industry standard bank payment batch file. You can make the payments via a simple upload to your online business banking account, leaving you in complete control of your finances.

Leave management, without the headaches

You and your employees have all the information you need to request and manage time off accurately. Track and record all types of leave, updating employee balances after each pay.

PayHero records annual leave in Weeks, and has been built to follow the 2017 Holidays Act guidance from MBIE, so you can be confident you’re always on the right side of employment law.

Take a break from employee admin

Give employees controlled self-service access to update details, view pay history and submit timesheets, leave requests and expense claims. Let staff manage their own info, so you don’t need to.

Powerful reporting

Minimum wage top up

Ensure that salaried staff who work variable hours, and employees paid based on piecemeal rates, are always paid at least the minimum wage for their actual hours of work. PayHero will monitor hourly rates and automatically apply a top up if they drop below minimum wage.

Payslip software

Payslips are automatically emailed to employees when you finalise a pay. Add your company logo to your payslip template and select which information is shown to employees.
