1 Feb 2016Change From Five Employee Limit To Two
For over 10 years Kwik-Pay Payroll has been free to use for up to 5 employees. Due to the increasing burden of software changes required by tax offices we are being forced to change the limit to 2 employees. From 1 Feb 2016, new Kwik-Pay Payroll users with 3, 4 or 5 employees will require a registration key.

If you are already using Kwik-Pay for 3, 4 or 5 employees, you can continue using Kwik-Pay free of charge until the end of the tax year if you do not update to the latest version of the software.

If you are a book-keeper processing a number of payrolls, we can update your account so you can generate as many registration keys as you need for an annual subscription. Email to service@kwikpay.com.au for more information.
