Give your team the tools they need to complete key payroll tasks from the palm of their hand

Timesheets in their pocket
From on the farm, employees can submit timesheets against different work items or cost centres by entering start, end and break times or using the GPS start/stop timer. They can access their old payslips too, so you don’t need to dig them out.

Capture expenses with ease
Expense claims couldn’t be easier. Your employees can take a photo of a receipt, categorise it and submit the expense for approval from their phone.

Easy leave requests
Employees can submit leave requests, check the approval status and balances and see a record of leave already taken and booked in with a simple calendar view.

PayHero has made payroll quick and easy. The support team is great as well and they help get me sorted whenever I need a hand.

Accommodation and piecemeal
It’s straightforward to set up and manage farm specific payroll needs in PayHero. If you’re paying employees piecemeal rates for the work they do or have accommodation allowances in your contracts, our support team can help you get those set up.

Pay wages from anywhere
With online payroll you can pay your staff from wherever you are. If you set your payroll to Autopilot, PayHero will run your payroll on payday and send you an email with all the details. You can finalise the pay there and then without having to login.

Integrate with Xero
Automatically send payroll data through to Xero. Keep it simple or assign wage costs to different account codes and tracking categories for a more detailed breakdown.

Simplify compliance

Look after your farm and let PayHero take care of the tricky payroll stuff

Minimum wage top up
PayHero ensures that salaried farm staff who work variable hours, or earn piecemeal rates, are always paid at least the minimum wage, so you can be sure you’re compliant and your employees are paid fairly.

Stay onside with the Holidays Act
Farming & agriculture is a hotbed of potentially tricky payroll scenarios with part time and variable hour staff and regularly changing work patterns. PayHero follows the latest MBIE Holidays Act guidance to ensure your employees maintain the correct holiday entitlements, even when things change.

Automated payday filing
Payday filing is a piece of cake in PayHero – just connect your account to IRD and we’ll automatically send your payroll information through after every pay.
