Smartly (formally SmartPayroll)


Doing the pay run manually? There’s an easier way!

Smartly means saying goodbye to processing pay manually, going through time sheets, working out who was on annual leave, and making individual payments through your bank.

We can set you up on Smartly and set you on your way, or take over your payroll for you. If handing it over sounds like the option for you let’s talk.



Here’s a bit more about why we love Smartly

Easy to set up

They do it all for you! They’ll complete the set up process for your company and tell you when your payroll is ready to use. They’ll also enter any leave balances for existing employees.

Saves time

Wages are calculated, including holiday and leave balances, then paid automatically. In many businesses, one click of the mouse is all it takes to pay your staff and PAYE. Plus payslips are available for you to email or print out at the touch of a button.

Saves money

From just 99c per employee each time you pay them and an $18.50 monthly fee. Enjoy a payroll system that saves you time and money.

IRD obligations

Smartly pays your employees directly to their bank accounts, deducts PAYE, Kiwisaver and all other deductions, and then files relevant schedules and returns with the Inland Revenue Department.

Free support

Calls to the help desk are toll-free from New Zealand. They’re on hand to answer any questions or fix issues and they don’t mind how often you call!

Law changes updated

Smartly is updated immediately with any changes to New Zealand payroll regulations so you never need to worry about non-compliance. Tax rate changes are handled automatically so you don’t have to worry.


Managed by Datacom, New Zealand’s largest payroll provider, all your information is highly secure. Information is centrally stored so there is no risk of losing your payroll records.

Accessible anywhere

Wherever you have an internet connection you can process your payroll. Smartly works on your desktop computer or your iPad.

No software install or need to upgrade
