Another Local Payroll Entrant

Awhile ago I wrote about iPayroll, a local SaaS payroll provider. New to the scene comes Flexitime, another payroll option.

Whereas iPayroll is an official IRD intermediary, meaning that they can act as a company’s proxy when dealing with the IRD, Flexitime is a standalone service which means companies will still do the traditional cheque sending to the IRD.

In use Flexitime is simple, pretty and intuitive. I’ve gone on record saying that I’m a bit of a fan of applications built on top of flex, in my experience it just seems to increase the chances of creating an application with a great user experience – I’m not sure why but it’s just my observation.

I’ve attached some screenshots below to show how it works. Robert Owen, founder of Flexitime, sent me an email the other day to say that they now allow file downloads for ASB, ANZ, BNZ, National Bank and Westpac. For payroll files.

Go have a look – Flexitime costs $20/month or up to five users. It’s also fully integrated with Xero, creating another time saving (no more horrible journal entries to reconcile an archaic payroll system with an equally archaic accounting system!)

The pay window – probably the first window you’ll see each week;

Enter the hours for an employee – pretty simple;

The all important payslip;

And a nice, correctly formatted PAYE return for the IRD;

  • Anything that can help individuals or businesses with payroll and reporting is good, provided of course it comes with the necessary support for the layperson I suppose.

    godd artilce thanks keep it I really like this post thanks you are sharing a great article post.

  • Thanks for the article. We’ve been using Flexitime and have found it pretty good but are considering a shift to iPayroll for greater automation, particularly of the IRD side of things. Does anyone have experiences with either of these applications they’d be willing to share? iPayroll’s interface/learning curve seems a bit more daunting, but perhaps that’s mainly a reflection of its greater sophistication… Cheers.
