*Our monthly regular processing fees follow a tiered structure, where the average costs per employee will decrease as the total number of employees increases. The total monthly processing fees will be the sum of the costs for each tier. Your actual monthly fees will then vary based on the fluctuations in your headcount.

An irregular processing fee will be applied as required for any employee payment processing, which does not coincide with monthly regular payroll processing (off-cycle processing), e.g. religious festivities bonus, performance bonus pay-outs, incentives and more.

Payroll implementation process

Simple steps to implement your payroll.

1. Initial assessment

We expertly assess your payroll needs, select the required services and prepare commencement of the agreed services. We will identify and make recommendations on areas for improvement to make the payroll process more efficient.

2. Service blueprint

Once engaged for our payroll service, we will produce a payroll blueprint document. This outlines everything required in the payroll administration (such as including initial data migration, ongoing processing, calculation details, reporting requirements and employee services, and payroll calendar) and it serves as a reference for both parties.

3. Testing phase

We create a test environment featuring the customised payroll system to meet your requirements. We set up the system, migrate the employee data and integrate transaction data for comment and approval.

4. Parallel run & evaluation

Then, we run payroll processes and make comparisons with the previous payroll calculations. After performing quality checks and resolving any calculation differences, we work with you to make the switch to our payroll system.

5. Production

Your payroll system is set up precisely as required and is ready to begin service to your HR team and your employees.

Ongoing customer support from people who care about your team.

Engage with our professionals for exceptional payroll and individual income tax support. Even if your company is running without a hitch, we will continue to notify you when there are regulatory changes that could possibly impact your company.
