It goes without saying that any rapidly growing business needs a world-class software like Sage Pastel Payroll & HR.


Also, if you run a business in South Africa (or anywhere in Africa) and have one or more employees in your company, not only you need HR, but an efficient payroll system too. The sooner you get those two right, the better.


Don’t be like one of those business owners who wait for things to reach crisis point before reviewing or improving things in their business. You may ask, “how would I know I need Sage Pastel Payroll?”



These are the signs:


1.Days before paydays are a nightmare

Your current payroll “system” may consist of manually tracking hours worked, using a calculator to multiply hours worked by an employee, and hand-write on a payslip.


Even worse, you may spend hours chasing timesheets from staff, deciphering the handwritten ones, reconciling or querying variations from the roster. What a nightmare!


2.You are employing new staff more often

Your business has outgrown the current manual system and each month you are employing new staff. This on its own adds to your number of tasks.


3.Paying tax has become a challenge

Staying on top of legislation, and being SARS compliant has become a huge challenge for you. This is because you waste time calculating employee tax and overtime manually. Your calculations may also be inaccurate.


4.Errors on payslips

Payslips have frequent errors. For example, things like pay increase or bonuses are not factored in properly. Almost every month you get the same complaints from your employees.


5. You can't pay employees on time

There might be a lot of reasons why this happens, however, usually; it's because you were not able to complete the necessary payroll tasks. If this continues, it may result in low staff morale among your team and impact on their overall performance. Sage Pastel Payroll  can help you to avoid the above mentioned problems in the following ways:

  1.  Sage Pastel Payroll allows you to process weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments to your employees with ease. That means your employees will be paid on time.

  3. Structuring a salary will be a lot quicker! You will now structure a Total-Cost-To-Company remuneration package, and for each employee.
  4. Multiple Transactions Manager enables you to complete more than one task easily, from only one screen.
  5. Third Party Payments – disburse company deductions or contributions, like medical aids or pension funds are all done with the click of a button.
  6.  Sage Pastel Payroll offers easy, accurate and secure payroll software processing with all the features you need. Additionally, it integrates  with any Pastel Accounting software packages on the market.
