Free Software For Payroll Course

By The Team | February 7, 2014

Payroll is our bread and butter, but for many businesses, it is a big headache, the great unknown, or simply something they don’t understand as well as they would like. We’d like everyone to know and love payroll like we do, so we’re organising a range of informative, practical and worthwhile payroll seminars throughout the year.

Our first FREE payroll seminar for 2014

Our first FREE payroll course for the year will be held in Auckland at the Novotel Hotel on the 14th February (Valentines Day!). The course is 2 hours long and is for both employers and accountants. The best part? There IS such thing as a free lunch! We’ll provide a lunch and some great networking opportunities for both accountants and employers. These courses always fill up very quickly so get in early

Make it a date

Our next course is on the 14th of February, and we just can’t think of a better way to impress than to bring your valentine along for lunch and a payroll seminar! In all seriousness, we do encourage you to bring along anyone you think may benefit from one of our seminars, regardless of their position in your, or another, company. It is an especially valuable service for anyone you know who is thinking about or new to employing staff and isn’t 100% on their obligations – it could be the most fruitful valentines date they ever have!

Who are our payroll seminars for?

SmartPayroll’s payroll seminars are for anyone that manages payroll, anyone thinking about employing staff, or new to employing staff who would like some more information and an opportunity to ask the experts some questions about our software for payroll. They are also highly relevant for accounting professionals.
