Simplify your processes

Tired of repetitive payroll tasks? KeyPay’s pay run automation lets you run those in the background, freeing you from day-to-day manual admin while still allowing complete control of the pay run. Stop worrying about finding time for payroll tasks; free up the time to focus on more strategic work.

Save time with payroll automation

Payroll tasks such as payroll calculations, importing timesheets, publishing pay slips, and sending reports can take up your entire day. With a quick one-off configuration these tasks will run automatically, saving up to 90% of your time on payroll admin, and allowing more hours in the day to take your business to the next level.

Quality assurance built in

What if someone’s leave has not been approved? What if bank account details are missing, or an employee’s birthday falls within the pay run? How will automation work then?

Developed from analysing over 158k businesses within our system, we’ve factored in all the ‘what ifs’ for you. Our automation technology utilises built-in warnings which users can pre-select to pause the payroll automation process if something requires action prior to finalising the pay run. So don’t worry - employee pays will always be accurate and fully compliant.

Automated pay run screen

Available for businesses of all sizes

KeyPay is STP compliant for businesses of all sizes. With over 175,000 Australian businesses on the platform, KeyPay is a leading ATO-certified STP reporting software. With KeyPay as a STP provider, ATO compliance has never been easier!

With the proven ability to streamline STP reporting for thousands of Australian businesses, you can rely on KeyPay to ensure you’re compliant with STP Phase 2!

Empowering your employees

Say goodbye to tedious, repetitive requests and improve employee productivity business-wide. KeyPay's employee portal empowers staff to navigate requests and find information for themselves so you don’t have to. All employee data is in one secure space, allowing managers to monitor and approve requests from one system which integrates straight into payroll.

Employee data management

KeyPay's employee portal allows staff to change or view their personal details themselves.
