    Hi Pedro,

    If you are interested in a web based online system - I can highly recommend Simple Pay. You pay a monthly fee based on the number of employees that you run payslips for, there are no annual licensing fees, for 17 employees you are looking at a monthly fee of approx. R140. I use Simple Pay for my own business as well as for a number of clients and haven't had any issues. The best part is that they offer a free 2 month trial period as well.

    I've been using Quick Payroll. My observations are it takes a bit of setting up, but it does make payroll runs a lot quicker once you've got it all tweaked.

    I have to say the setup was not as simple as one might hope, and frankly operating it is surprisingly fiddly for a brand that has a reputation for producing very user-friendly software.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Thanks for the link. Any idea as to how reliable or easy the online SARS submissions are? Will the report give me the totals to send to my GL?

    I only have 12 employees so using something like Pastel Payroll is probably overkill.

    Thanks for that link, i did sign for the two month trial, but have sinced noticed a problem. I have a supermarket running seven days a week, according to labour dept i only need to pay 1.5 times for a sunday because its ordinary that sundays are worked, but according to simple pay thay only give an option at 2 times the pay.

    Pedro, contact Dave Ungerer - dave@simplepay.co.za - they are always willing to accommodate specific requests.

    @Cagenuts - I haven't used the SARS submissions function myself yet - sign up for the 2 month free trial and give it a test run would be my recommendation.

    Off topic,... a few members have called me Kyle and I couldn't figure out why, then I realised my signature quote by Kyle Chandler had a few of you confuzzled
