    I have been using Simplepay for about 18 months now, two seperate businesses, one with 7employees, the other with 15 employees. With regard to their back up, i must say they will suprise a lot of people, as im not their biggest client by far they still go out of their way to attend to a query very quick and efficiently.
    I have used the exporting into easy file employer and must add thats its a life saver and extremely easy.
    Will not change anytime soon.

    Based on your recommendation, I'm giving this a go this year. I'm sooo tired of dealing with Quick Payroll and its quirks.

    The only thing I'm not looking forward to is capturing all the employee profile data...
    But so worth it if it's plain sailing from there.

    Please keep us updated in a month or so Dave.

    Mike, it's exactly as Clive said - this is the real deal. There's clearly been a lot of thought and attention to detail that's gone into this package.

    So far there are only two aspects that I can be critical of -
    • There isn't an option to password protect access to the software (i.e. there's no user login to the software, the only protection is the OS user profile login - something I'm not used to when it comes to business software security)
    • To update an employee's bank account, you can only get to edit the banking details using the employee setup wizard. Same "problem" also applies to some of the other employee personal information fields.

    For anyone who is even vaguely aware just how complex setting up payroll software can be, you'll recognise these "deficiencies" are trivial compared to what can go wrong.

    I'm seriously impressed so far.

    Dave, have you perhaps mailed Deon at support about this? I am unaffected but I can imagine this is an issue for some.

    To update an employee's bank account, you can only get to edit the banking details using the employee setup wizard. Same "problem" also applies to some of the other employee personal information fields.
    This pains me too, but I live with it.

    Dave, go file then set password.

    I've been using it for 5 years and only saw it now

    I'm tired of struggling to get hold of support on Pastel Payroll. Definitely going to give intercode and SimplePay a closer look

    We use Simple Pay and whilst it doesn't have all the fancy stuff, for a staff complement of say less than 50 people it will work just fine.

    HI Travis,

    Have you tried Sage payroll online.

    I also have some serious issues with Pastel Payroll (desktop version), but have found Sage Payroll online very user friendly and efficient.
