Cloud payroll that you can trust

KeyPay is not your average payroll solution. Whether you’re a payroll bureau, accountant or a business owner, KeyPay is designed with compliance and carefully considered timesavers at its core. Transform the way you work, with peace of mind that payroll is always accurate.

Automated Holidays Act compliance

You’ll never need to double check your holiday pay calculations again with KeyPay’s automated leave calculations. A one-off configuration defines employees’ standard working day hours, applying the accurate leave entitlement automatically - at the right time. Using our historical gross earnings import feature, KeyPay will have the right data to automate all holiday and leave calculations. That’s right - holiday pay will always be compliant with the Holidays Act 2003, with no manual calculations required!

Automate pay runs - on your terms

Bogged down by repetitive admin tasks? Now you can set, forget, and run payroll in the background with confidence. With a one-off configuration, payroll can be set to start a pay run and run all necessary admin tasks automatically, so you can focus your time on strategic work. Don’t worry about errors - you can choose a selection of warning notifications that will pause the automation if any information is required.
