Take the Tour

Employee Onboarding & Compliance

Present your compliance and onboarding documents and/or videos to new employees when they log in to ensure 100% compliance. Store acceptances and auto update when needed.

Employee Self Service

Employees can manage their own personal data 24/7 including tax, banking, timesheets, expenses, leave, and even sign off on compliance documents, from any web browser.


Highly configurable timesheets for employees that need them. Our timesheets support multiple jobs, projects, shifts, allowances, mileage, breaks, leave and expenses.

Pay Conditions

Configure rules for EA’s, awards, overtime, meal breaks, allowances and public holidays. Your employees’ timesheets are then automatically interpreted against the defined rules.

Payroll Processing

Paying your employees is simple. Easily create multiple pay cycles from any time periods, have pay items and expenses automatically inserted, then send your bank file and payslips with one click.


If needed, invoices are auto generated from timesheets and expenses, or you can create them manually. Load your own invoice templates and easily handle credits, refunds, statements and write-offs.


Integrate with the software you already use. Easily connect your RMS, ATS and Accounting systems including MYOB, Xero, Bullhorn, JobAdder and many more.

Taxes, KIWISAVER, & Insurance

Automatically calculate PAYE, Kiwisaver and workplace insurances. Notify your employees to ensure compliance, then process payments and report to the IRD quickly and easily. Includes Payday Filing.

Implementation, Training & Support

Astute Payroll offers multiple implementation options that can be tailored to your specific needs. Training is available in your office, online, or at one of our regular workshops held in capital cities throughout the year. When it comes to support, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s what our clients have to say about us.

“As a labour hire company, moving our timesheet management from a manual system to Astute’s online system in 2011 was the best decision we ever made. Not only did Astute make the timesheet management process easy for our clients and contractors, it also saved us so much time that we could afford to have our staff reduce their hours for a better work-life balance. Our complex invoicing cycle and contractor payroll cycle went from 40 hours a week to less than 10 hours a week. Astute’s training and support is always spot on. You can tell the product has been developed by someone who knows the intricate nuances of the labour hire industry and the laws governing them. Thank you Astute for improving the way we manage our clients and contractors.”
