The best payroll software for accountants

Utilise Australia’s best payroll software to eliminate manual data transfer and reduce compliance admin time. Refocus your time on client value and advisory.

Drive profit through payroll services

Accountants often perceive payroll as a “loss-leading” service; but not with KeyPay. Eliminate manual tasks through payroll automation, saving time to grow your business and revenue. With our VAR reseller discounted pricing model, your costs decrease as your client base grows.

“The plan was to get someone else to run the payroll, but KeyPay is so efficient I haven’t had to get anybody new onboard. If you have a payroll clerk, you could use their skills and time elsewhere to add value and drive profit to the business using KeyPay.”

KeyPay's Modern Award interpretation

Automate award and payroll compliance

Payroll compliance is ever evolving and complex. Remove the need for manual calculations, Excel spreadsheets, or multiple apps for the interpretation of Australia’s Modern Awards. Our Modern Award interpretation engine can automate employee award calculations for you - always updated in real time with scheduled legislation changes.

“From a compliance perspective, the fact that we can automate rules, apply award conditions, and entertain complex pay regimes via enterprise agreements is very beneficial. That’s where KeyPay really allows us to deliver value to our clients.”

Daniel James, EPG Payroll & HR

Timesheet app and time clocking

Accountants can spend hours each month chasing and managing timesheets. Empower employees to enter their own timesheets via WorkZone, our ESS timesheet app or our iPad time clocking app, Clock Me In. Our timesheet calculator automatically interprets timesheet hours for each employee and feeds the data straight into payroll, so you don’t have to.

“Employees used to email over their hours, or send a photo of an envelope with hours written on it. One of the pain points was manually keying those hours into the system. Now with KeyPay, we don’t have to type anything up or chase staff. The clients’ workload has gone down, and so has mine.”

Accounting software integration

Accountants can eliminate the need for journal Excel exports and uploads. Integrate seamlessly with a range of accounting platforms including Xero, QuickBooks Online, NetSuite and Saasu. Automate journal entries after each pay run, provision leave liabilities in journals, and map GL accounts with the ability to split by location.

“You set it up one time, and the journal is always posted accurately at the time that you submit the payroll. It’s seamless.”
