You don't have time to struggle with complicated payroll software. We get that. And you want to be sure you are up to date with all the changing requirements from SARS. That's why we designed our online payroll system to take as much as possible off your hands.
  • Designed from the ground up to deal with South African payroll legislation.
  • Takes the hassle out of payroll administration. Statutory deductions and contributions are calculated automatically (Tax, UIF, SDL). SimplePay will ask you the right questions to ensure that payroll deductions are done in the correct manner.
  • Assumes no knowledge of payroll legislation, nor experience with other payroll software / systems.
  • The system will tell you when your submissions are due and remind you to prevent late submissions. You'll always be 100% compliant. Submissions are done electronically wherever possible.
