Payroll Review | Online Payroll Software | FlexiTime PayHero

Perfect for hourly employees

Track hourly work with ease and automatically calculate pay and entitlements for part time, casual, contract or shift workers. Let staff record hours against different work and cost centres with online & mobile timesheets or capture exact start and finish times with photo clock in/out.

Public holidays are for relaxing

No more painstaking public holiday calculations or costly payroll errors! Save on paperwork and manual processing by using timesheet history to automatically calculate holiday entitlements for variable hour employees.


Minimum wage top up

PayHero ensures that salaried staff who work variable hours, and employees paid based on piecemeal rates, are always paid at least the minimum wage for their actual hours of work. PayHero will monitor hourly rates and automatically apply a top up if they drop below minimum wage, so you can be sure you’re compliant and your employees are being paid fairly.


Seamlessly record breaks

PayHero time clock users can now automatically record breaks through the app, and PayHero will figure out if the break should be a paid 10-minute rest break or an unpaid 30-minute meal break. Minimise the burden on managers and allow employees to document their breaks themselves.
