Pricing FAQs

How much does it cost?

$5 per pay run, plus $1.89 per employee per pay run*.

*plus bank fees and GST.

I have seasonal staff. Do I have to pay for them even when they aren't working?

Nope! We wouldn’t do that to you. You’ll only ever pay for the staff who are actually getting paid in each pay run.

Why do you charge bank fees?

When we handle payments to your staff and Inland Revenue, the bank charges us for every transaction. This is a fee that you’d normally pay with your own bank if you did the payments yourself, and we’re just passing it on.

Our standard charge is $0.37 plus GST per transaction. So, if you’ve got 5 staff, you might end up paying $0.37 per payment to staff, plus $0.37 for a payment to the PAYE trust account, and $0.37 for a deduction on a staff member’s pay, for a total of $2.59 plus GST in bank fees.

Am I locked in?

Nope! You’re not on a contract or a term. If you don't love our software, you can leave any time. But we really hope you’ll stay.

How much does extra support cost?

Nothing, zero, zip and nada. Support is free - it’s just part of PaySauce. If you need any help, call us on 0800 746 700.

What if I have multiple pay runs?

Same deal - you’ll always be charged per pay run. For example, if your first run includes 5 staff and your second only two staff, then you’ll be charged $14.45* for the first run and $8.78* for the second.

*plus bank fees and GST.

What happens when I add new staff?

You can add new staff at any time, even in advance. You’ll only be charged when they’re actually included in a pay run.

Do you have any monthly or annual subscription fees?

Nope! There’s no extras. No signup, support or subscription costs. You only get charged when you use our software to run a pay.

Why are you more expensive than some other payroll providers?

In some cases, we are. But just make sure you're comparing apples with apples.

Not all payroll providers offer the same features or level of service. If you do your research, we’re confident you’ll find that our pricing is very competitive. As an end-to-end solution, we’re actually much cheaper than many of our competitors!

I’m coming from another provider. Will it cost to transfer my data across?

Nope, we’ve got you covered. Our support team can help you bring all your data across for free.
