A lot of payroll systems seem to have weekly or monthly charges based on employee numbers. Why does Ace Payroll not have these charges?

Ace Payroll has no per employee charges, no per pay, weekly or monthly charges, and no limit on how many staff can be paid.

To be honest, most per employee pricing is based on the idea that a business with a lot of staff can afford to pay more.

Over the years Ace Payroll has found no link between the cost of supporting a client, and the number of staff employed.

In fact, quite often there is more cost supporting a new employer with just a small number of staff, than there is supporting a larger employer with an experienced payroll person.

At Ace Payroll our pricing is upfront and transparent and years of efficiency gains and experience allows us to keep our expenses down and pass most of the savings back to our clients.
