Pricing FAQs

What’s the difference between Simple, Standard and Premium?

Simple is essentially just your calculator! It’ll accurately tell you what needs to be paid to your team and to Inland Revenue, plus handle your Payday Filing.

Standard takes care of your pay run from start to finish. Your team can use digital timesheets on their mobile devices, all your payroll payments and filing will be taken care of automatically, and you can call our expert team for support if you need it.

Premium gives you all the perks of Standard, plus custom job costing, personalised branding on your payslips and exclusive access to Rosters.

If Simple is just a calculator, will it still help me stay compliant?

Yes! Simple is still a big step up from manual systems like wagebooks or desktop software that can’t be easily updated to stay ahead of legislation. It’ll still accurately track and record accruals and help you get the right rates for leave, issue your team with payslips so they understand their balances, and generate reports for you to review, track and share payroll data.

How do I use Rosters? Are there any handy resources to help me learn how it works?

We’ve put together a guide to Rosters in our Help Centre, and of course, we’re always available to answer any questions if you get stuck.

I’ve been using PaySauce for a while and I’m on the “Starter” pricing plan - I don’t see that on your website anymore! Do I have to change my plan?

Nope! If you’re on an old plan that we don’t offer anymore, you can stay there as long as you like. We might reach out to let you know that we have new features that are only available on our new plans, but you’re totally free to stay where you are unless you choose to make a change.

I’ve been using PaySauce for ages, does anything change for me?

Nope! If you were a PaySauce payroll customer prior to 1 March, 2021, you don’t have to change anything unless you choose to!

I want my team to be able to use timesheets but I don’t need the other features in Standard - can I get Simple but add timesheets?

Our packages are currently bundled up pretty tight - we can’t mix and match features at the moment. We’d recommend that you just pick the best plan for you that delivers the most value and does the things that your business needs.

Can I just use Rosters without payroll?

Not at the moment. We’re keen to offer Rosters to the whole world soon, but for now it’s reserved for our lucky payroll customers. We think our payroll product is pretty awesome too, though!

Which pricing plan is right for me?


Simple is a good fit for a smaller business looking for just the basics, or with straightforward and consistent pay structures. It’s also ideal for those moving from a manual system to a cloud solution and getting used to running pays digitally.


Standard will save you serious time on payroll and admin and make payday fast, smart and efficient with a comprehensive payroll solution.


Premium is our most powerful solution with the most advanced feature set, and will take care of everything including Rosters!

How do I change my plan?

You can change your plan on the web app under "Account → Settings → Billing Plan".

Can I select or change my pricing plan on the mobile phone app?

You’ll have to use the PaySauce web app on a computer. If you don’t have access to a computer or need a hand, drop us a call or an email and we’re happy to help.

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

PaySauce is a subscription service. So you’ll always pay your consistent monthly base charge, but your per-person charge will change depending on how many people are in your pay run ($2/person for Simple, $5/person on Standard or $6/person on Premium. If you don’t pay somebody during the calendar month, you won’t be charged for them.

Am I locked in?

Nope! You’ll pay on a monthly basis. If you cancel part-way through the month, you’ll be billed the subscription fee for that period, but there are no penalty charges or anything nasty like that.

What do you mean by “costing”?

Costing lets you allocate wages against business units and time codes, or whichever expense you want to track, and map this info to bookkeeping software like Xero. For more details on costing, check out

And “timesheets”?

PaySauce offers fully mobile timesheets that your staff can fill in from anywhere. For employees paid hourly, these go straight into payroll, cutting way down on admin and time. For more on timesheets, check out

Will I still have access to reports on Standard or Simple?

You sure do! All our customers have access to all reports.

Can I use an external timesheet app outside of PaySauce, then upload my timesheet data?

No worries! We have integrations with a handful of timesheet software providers, or can help you upload this info in a spreadsheet.

Will I be charged bank fees?

Only on Simple - Standard and Premium plans absorb these charges.

I’m a large employer (50+ employees). What about me?

Get in touch with us directly on 0800 746 700, so we can figure out the best and fairest way for you to use PaySauce.

How will I be billed?

You’ll be billed monthly for your base charge, plus each unique employee in any pay run across the month. If you pay the same 5 people 4 times in a month, you’ll only be charged for 5 employees. If you pay 7 different employees across 2 pay cycles in a month, you’ll be charged for 7 employees.

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.
