Accounting, payroll & HR and payments software firm Sage is set to launch Sage One Payroll tomorrow globally and on April 25th in Kenya in a move expected to help startups and small businesses automate their accounting processes and tax obligations to save them time and money.

The cloud-based payroll solution was first launched in South Africa but has now been tailored for the local market and meets all the local tax and legal requirements. Sage One Payroll is integrated with Sage One Accounting, offering clients both an accounting and HR suite in one.

Pay your employees anywhere, anytime with a simple and secure online payroll solution for start-up and small businesses

 

Nairobi, KENYA – 3 April 2017 – Sage, the market and technology leader for integrated accounting, payroll & HR and payment systems, today announced that Sage One Payroll will be available in Kenya from 3 April. The cloud solution integrates smoothly with Sage One Accounting, offering a complete business solution for start-up and small businesses. This was announced at the recent Sage Summit Tour for Africa & Middle East that took place in Johannesburg, South Africa.

 

Sage One Payroll is a smart online payroll solution that can be accessed 24/7 via the internet and that caters for local tax and legal requirements. It allows unlimited earnings (what you owe the employee) and deductions (what the employee owes you or someone else). The software automatically calculates all statutory amounts – income tax, National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF), National Social Security Fund (NSSF) and any other payroll related costs – to leave you with the correct net salary for each employee.

For as little as Ksh100 per employee per month, Sage One Payroll streamlines capturing of transactions, automates payroll calculations and brings visibility to the business. It also makes it simpler to keep track of annual changes to tax regulations that impact on payroll tax calculations and various changes in legislation.

 

“Because Sage One Payroll is online, you can simply login from wherever you are and start working,” says Nikki Summers, Director for Sage One in East and West Africa. “The software makes it simple to file statutory returns, automatically update your payroll general ledger in Sage One Accounting and produce professional electronic payslips with a click of a button is a major timesaver.”

 

Core features in Sage One Payroll include:

 

  • Easy to use: With no payroll jargon and pre-defined transaction definitions and templates, you can simply sign up, add your employees and start processing within 5 minutes.
  • Available anywhere, anytime: You can access your data from the cloud which means that your data is available online, anywhere, anytime. All you need is an internet connection.
  • Tax submissions are a breeze: With Sage One Payroll, your payroll legislation is taken care of. Comply with the Kenya Revenue Authority requirements and generate tax certificates in one simple step.
  • Unlimited companies, employees and users: With this smart online payroll solution, your payroll expands and shrinks as your business grows, enabling you to add as many employees or pay cycles as you like.
  • Flexible pricing: The pricing plan, based on different brackets of employee count, won’t break the bank. You can pay per month or per year.

 

The discipline a good payroll solution offers to the business also comes with other benefits, adds Summers. Payroll fraud is a major risk, especially for smaller businesses, and incorrect payments can cost dearly. Payroll software delivers better visibility into transactions, provides an audit trail, reconciles input and output and offers a set of controls, checks and balances that help to prevent errors and fraud.

 

Mediabox Advertising Limited – which specialises in outdoor advertising, print management, corporate branding and signage, creative design, promotional items and branded material – uses the Sage One Accounting solution. “We’re so excited about Sage One Payroll as it will save us a great deal of time as we manage the payroll for our 12 employees,” says founder, Martin Kibote.

 

“We can easily comply with our tax obligations and print out professional payslips with a push of a button. Plus, the integration between Sage One Accounting and Sage One Payroll means that we don’t need to manually recapture payroll data in our accounting system.”

 

Concludes Summers: “Business builders and entrepreneurs don’t go into business to manage admin and red tape. Our vision is to make those tasks invisible by 2020 by automating the back-office functions so that they can focus on business strategy and more creative tasks that will enable them to follow their dreams.”

 

Sign up for Sage One Payroll in April to test it for free for 60 days. As a special introductory offer, you can get Sage One Accounting and Payroll for 10 employees and only pay Ksh17,000 for an annual subscription.
