I recently met an accountant who complained about the payroll processing. He has to update 12 Excel sheets monthly, each containing 500+ staff names. The sheets cover Paye, NSSF, NHIF, HELB, SACCO contributions, loan repayments, salary advances, and more. He faced errors in some reports and encountered difficulties in seeking refunds for overpayments, which was time-consuming. While on the other hand under payments attracted penalties and his boss was now threatening him if he did not make an improvement.
Took upon myself and asked him if he had tried any payroll software to at least automate routine tasks and just print payslips and he had not.
I quickly took it upon myself to introduce Quick Payroll and after using it for only two days feeding in initial data and processing the first salary with it and he says it took less time compared to the excel worksheets he had and had fewer errors. I cannot wait until he works on it the second month since it will take less than an hour to do it.
You too can experience peace of mind like my accountant friend!Button
