Simple. Comprehensive. Affordable.



We set out developing an exceptional payroll solution.


Because traditional systems just did not measure up any longer.


  Now, you also have a modern, smarter option.




People are the bottom line.

Payroll is about the people who drive innovation and growth and make your business perform. Accurate, timely processing of your payroll confirms not only your business’ financial integrity, but how you value and respect your workforce.




 A valuable strategic resource

Your payroll is undoubtedly the premier source of people data available in your business.  It is authentic, objective and precise - and potentially eye-opening.  The insight it offers not only supports your decision making, but also your overall business management.


Abacus Payroll Software empowers you to look after the best interest of both your workforce and your business. After all, it is an interest shared.


  •    We believe:


    • in doing things right. Our system is and will remain 100% SARS compliant. The accuracy of our built in, pre-configured calculators also ensure that both you and your employees enjoy the best possible Tax savings.


    • your time is precious. Payroll processing should not take you hours. The simplicity of our system, its speed and quality of processing means you have more time to focus on what is important to you.


    • in the wisdom of Leonardo da Vinci’s words: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. Our software is easy to learn and operate, and allows even an inexperienced user to create and maintain an efficient payroll.


    • call centres are infuriating. You need someone who pays attention to you and your business. We take great pride in the professional and personal service our agents are recognised for – a handshake and sharing a smile is still a good foundation to a great relationship.


    • salaries should not to be messed with. We agree that salaries are sensitive and complicated by nature and errors cannot be tolerated. This is why our user training is mandatory, support is always at hand and our calculation are precise.


    • software should be affordable. We don’t tie you down in contracts or charge expensive license fees. A fixed annual tax update fee ensures your system stays up to date throughout the year.


    • perspective is key. We are determined to remain focused on our clients’ perspective – to see the business world through their eyes, and make sure our system really works for them.


    • continued innovation is a top priority. We are never complacent about our product and continuously innovate to offer an even more streamlined and user-friendly solution, while expanding functionality.
