Fantastic cloud payroll software!

5.0 4 months ago

Pros:

This is a fantastic cloud payroll software! It is the easiest to use (no training required) and most efficient cloud app we have ever come across in our 25 years in business. we had Sage Payroll before for 15 years and it was absolute junk and pain, month after month, update after update. Customer Support rarely needed but great team, very fast to answer. Now integrated new 2024 Revenue ERR requirements. I would recommend to anyone doing payroll in Ireland

Cons:

I saw a review saying that it may be a bit light for some complex payroll needs? We have 16 staff and never had an issue in 10 years

Not the best provider

2.0 3 years ago

Comments: If you are looking for basic payroll and reporting this is great easy to use. If you have any issue this is where you will spend far too much time trying to solve them.

Pros:

Very simple payroll software to use, allows for direct deposit and flexibility to make easy changes.

Cons:

SimplePay has one person running the website. If you have any issues running your payroll it takes a while to get a response back.

SimplePay review by Daniel J. Ferreira

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: SARS/Payroll/SDL/UIF queries eliminated. Auto submission of UIF declarations. Claiming TERS was made easy (CSV files was created by the system). All company records since joining in 2012 available for reports.

Pros:

Really simple to use. Covers ALL payroll aspects. Ensures 100% tax compliancy. Low costs (charged per employee/month).

Cons:

Email-based problem solving could be quicker.

Very impressed

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

The fact that it is local and support are at the end of a phone if you need them, is crucial. It does all that you need and more.

Cons:

Very little to not like. A well rounded package that addresses our payroll needs
