Pay Solutions – Payrolls for Africa

Understanding payroll and the needs of your business in terms of regulations from SARS, Department of Labour etc, is something that takes expertise and a guarantee that everything will be executed accurately and correctly first time, every time.

When it comes to running a successful business, there is no getting away from the fact that your business requires a payroll company which is trustworthy and reputable. As you grow your business or even as your current large business grows, it is imperative that you have a payroll system and company that you can rely on.

Domestic workers in SA are being recognised for the important role that they play in the labour arena in the lives of South Africans. In April 2003 they were pulled into the pool for UIF. They can now claim unemployment, illness and death benefits from the unemployment insurance fund (UIF).

Each year in December the Department of Labour publishes new minimum pay rates for Domestic Workers.

Pay Solutions offer Payroll Services that will keep track of Domestic Workers salaries, leave pay, leave and sick leave days that Domestic Workers are entitled to.

Pay Solutions Outsource Payroll Services use a cloud hosted Payroll / HR Solution called PSIberWorks. This can provide clients with online access to all aspects of their payroll as well as HR information when required.
