Schedule of fees and rates

Software usage fees. You only pay for what you use. The fee per use basis is based on the number of employees that were processed during the payroll processing period in each cycle. An employee is “processed” if there is an earning, deduction, company contribution or fringe benefit value on the employee’s payslip.

The invoice will be generated on the last day of each calendar month based on the number of employees per payroll-processing period per cycle closed during the calendar month, and payment terms are 7 days. Access to the software will be restricted should the invoice remain unpaid by the end of the month, following the calendar month in which the invoice was generated. Use of the Software is subject to the terms and conditions of the Sage One Payroll’s Software Licence Agreement.

      4. Free upload of previous payslips.

Take on your employees’ financial history at no charge. The calendar month in which you add your company on our online payroll software will determine your first live payroll period. Any payroll periods processed before that month are deemed to be take-on periods and processing will be free of charge. Any weekly or biweekly payroll periods that are linked to the “first live payroll month” will be chargeable. Note that invoices are not generated for take-on periods.

      5. Other services.

We provide consulting, training, payslips and other services as may be agreed upon in writing by the parties from time to time. The applicable rates will be quoted for acceptance prior to the service being performed, or the products being delivered or collected.

All prices are inclusive of VAT. Inflationary adjustments to the rates are made on 1 January of each year. The rate increase is applicable for any processing done from 1 January, regardless of the payroll month processed.
