Partner Spotlight: How PaySauce takes the Stress Out of Payroll

“How do we make a farmer’s life easier and add value while they are doing payroll?” These were the opening statements of our conversation with Asantha, CEO of PaySauce.

Asantha, and by nature PaySauce’s mantra is not about being the best payroll system, but a people system. Helping to make payroll work for farmers and their workers, and wanting to position farmers locally and globally as the generous and good employers we know, backed by proven statistics.

Dairy farmers operate in a really unique payroll environment that isn’t supportive of the 9-5 payroll model as it was originally designed. As a result, farmers have fallen at the mercy of stress and fines for not meeting standard regulations, which is where payroll systems targeted at farm management can help save time and release the stress of managing employees.


PaySauce comments, “‘Accommodation allowances are paid as part of salaries or wages, contracts need specific clauses around health and safety and tenancy arrangements, hours and work rhythms are wildly variable, the skill set is tricky to quantify and hiring is increasingly challenging.”

“Farming needs a custom payroll solution. Our key features for the Agri-market are the minimum wage top-up tool, our unrivalled mobility, our flexible subscription structure and Pay Advance.”

Described as perhaps ‘the most important and least exciting news of the year’, new Inland Revenue laws are about to come into effect that means employment information must be filed online within two days of being paid. The aim is to move from manual admin to a more effective digital system – but of course, this will catch out farm managers who are new to filing online.

To find out the nitty-gritty of what the new Payday Filing Laws mean for farmers and how to get set up for success, we suggest hearing it from the experts – jump on PaySauce’s Blog to learn more.

We are excited to welcome Paysauce to the Agrigate family so now farms using PaySauce and Agrigate can view milk production outputs in relation to labour effort for the first time.

Serving up joint insights like these is the first step towards creating a national benchmark, backed by real data giving farmers useful and actionable information to make decisions.
