Payroll for Horticulture & Viticulture
Payroll and Workforce Management for Growers
Pay employees right with payroll software, built for growing businesses
Accommodation and piecemeal
It’s straightforward to set up and manage horticulture specific payroll needs in PayHero, including paying piecemeal rates and providing accommodation allowances.
Minimum wage top up
PayHero ensures that workers earning piecemeal rates, and salaried staff who work variable hours, are always paid at least the minimum wage, so you can be sure you’re compliant and your employees are paid fairly.
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.
“The only software on the market currently able to accurately calculate the leave entitlements for employees with irregular working patterns, without manual intervention, is PayHero.”
Look after your business and let PayHero take care of the tricky payroll stuff
Stay onside with the Holidays Act
Horticulture 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.
Cloud-based & always up-to-date
Pay your wages from any computer or tablet with an internet connection. Every time payroll and labour laws change we update PayHero to keep you compliant. No downloads or time consuming updates required – just business as usual.
Automatically extend leave anniversaries for seasonal staff
Employees receive annual leave and sick leave entitlements for each year of employment, but what happens if they don’t work for you year-round? PayHero can automatically defer annual leave and sick leave entitlement dates for employees that have gaps between work assignments.
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.
Eliminate orchard paperwork and pay employees right
Employee management tools
Handle timesheets your way, and keep track of key employment documents
Supervisor clock ins
If you’ve got teams of people working at different locations your supervisors can clock employees in & out of work and breaks from their phone. Only your supervisors need to use the technology, while your pickers get on with the job.
Timesheets in their pocket
Or, get your employees to submit their own timesheets against different jobs, products or locations 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.
Keep track of RSE workers’ employment-related paperwork by saving key documents like contracts, permits, licences and IRD forms on the employee record.
