“We find SmartPayroll to be ideal for small clients with up to 5-6 employees. It is a practical, cost effective solution and the support is very good.”
Lynne Sohier, Peninsula Business Services
“Using SmartPayroll is second to none in my experience. It’s a great tool that’s well setup and has been well thought through. After familiarising myself with it in the initial stages, it’s provided a quick and easy payroll solution.”
Josh Mossop, Beelieve Enterprises Ltd
“I do not have any problem with recommending Smart payroll to more people.
Personally I find it easy to do, and if you do have an issue or query something you are unsure of the support team are brilliant and generally, there is a wait of no longer than 30 minutes to get a support person to get in touch with you and help you address the issue.
I find it brilliant that you deal with all the paperwork for the tax department so never have any late fees applied, we all know how they can add up. The cost is fine for getting it done right.
The reports you can get are good and give you an up to date record of the data you are requiring.
I personally have mentioned it to other dairy families that complain about doing the wages and suggest they jump on board with you.
I would encourage anyone with staff to use your lot.
Love being a client of yours. Thanks, Caroline Webster”

Smart Payroll took all the headaches out of sorting our wages. Such a friendly team always willing to answer even the simplest queries.
Carmen Brenssell,Belmedia Farm (2013) Limited
“Would definitely recommend Smart Payroll to anyone. Very easy to use, and have always loved that it the PAYE is sorted – automatic deductions are great and payments made to IRD on my behalf take out a big monthly hassle.”
Karen, The Dog Garden
“At Bonavaree we have spent the last couple of years upgrading our systems, preparing to grow our business. For years I was the do everything farmer, but at Bonavaree we realise today that is yesterday’s thinking.
We are moving all of our people to higher value work and moving out all the jobs we see as “better” done by others. After my whole life of doing the wages, we moved to SmartPayroll. I had not even been doing it all correctly. The people at Smart made it seamless for our move and were hugely helpful. We now have correct records of everything that goes on and our staff know exactly where they are. This has released me to work on other things and look after myself far more. While many other companies have moved into this space recently I can say that our own experience with these people has been fantastic. I strongly recommend SmartPayroll.”
Doug Avery, Bonavaree Farm
We changed our wages system to SmartPayroll because we were sick of the penalties for late filing PAYE. The program was easy to set up and has worked faultlessly ever since, and if you need any help the 0800 support people are very helpful and pleasant.
