Saasu is a comprehensive payroll system for micro to small businesses. It's designed for and manages companies with up to 100 active employees. Currently our Payroll module is designed for Australia but can be modified and used in other countries, as long as you accept that there will be limits to Saasu payroll in those instances.

The Payroll module is available on plans from Small or higher, for all Australian subscriptions, or from Medium and higher files (created before 1st March, 2018) for New Zealand and UK subscriptions.

Two ways to do the pays

In Saasu you can process pays one at a time by creating an individual Payroll entry. Otherwise you can process lots of pays at once inside a Pay Run. The latter also has an approval process for a higher degree of payroll control.

The basic steps involved in creating each type are as follows:

1. Individual Payroll transactions

Good if you only have 1-2 employees or want to do the pays manually.

  1. Setup employees details: View > Employees > Add (link)
  2. Setup Superannuation details: Settings for this file (Pay items) and Employee Default details
  3. Create a payroll transaction: Add > Payroll

2. Group Pay Runs

If you have a number of employees and want to automate the payroll process. These steps are after you've already setup the employees and superannuation.

  1. Set up first Pay Run: View > Pay Run > Add (link)
  2. Processing a pay run: View > Employees
