PayHero makes payday super easy and compliant, with automatic calculation of employee pay and holidays from online timesheets and work patterns.


PayHero is perfect for Kiwi companies that want stress free and compliant online payroll. Especially those with part time and mobile workforces, who face unique challenges tracking employee time accurately and calculating the right holiday entitlements for their staff.

PayHero streamlines the employee timesheet process with online, mobile, GPS or clock in/out options delivering accurate employee hours straight into payroll.

Following the very latest Holidays Act guidance from MBIE, PayHero stores employee leave balances in weeks so companies with staff who work variable hours or have changing work patterns always get employee leave entitlements right.

Better yet, the key elements that feed into payroll are all included - employee leave management; fully automated payday filing; expense claims and reimbursements; automatic calculation of public holiday entitlements; rest and meal break management; and deep integration with Xero so you can easily assign payroll costs to the general ledger and tracking categories.

I have helped all our clients using Flexitime immigrate over to PayHero, and the process was so easy and fuss free. PayHero is always my first recommendation to our clients. So easy to use and the support response time is really fast. Enjoy working with the PayHero team and they where really supportive.

We use PayHero inhouse and find it great for casual employees, a big plus for us is the comprehensive support and answers that we get in reply to our technical questions. Great integration with Xero for tracking departments, and IRD for Payday filing

Payroll issues are something we see every single day with businesses. Most business owners believe that their payroll is compliant and its not a problem but unfortunately what we see is that a lot (maybe even most) are not. 3rd Arm Admin are proud to be a PayHero Partner and absolutely love their approach to payroll compliance which fits perfectly with our philosophy at 3rd Arm Admin.
