    Avoid at all costs

    Disjointed, confusing set up with absolutely no support. I have spent hours searching through articles trying to find out how to set our company up. Six weeks in and it still isn't set up correctly. Lengthy delays in response time to queries (up to 10 days), I have an employee who has been waiting three weeks for his final pay. And to add insult to injury, we had to pay $500 for "onboarding support"

    Keypay has definitely provided a streamlined way to complete payroll, few glitches but certainly 5 stars :)

    Absolutely love Keypay and its integration with Xero. Keypay support is brilliant when needed, but once everything is set up its an absolute breeze. Also love its capabilities when it comes to accruing and using TIL.
