How do I get referral rewards for people that I refer to Saasu?
When does Saasu send referral reward payments?
After you have made the referrals and when the client files have been paid for, a monthly report of new paid files will be generated. At the end of the month, Saasu will send you a summary of how much referral rewards you will receive and bank the proceeds into your nominated Bank Account.
What is a valid referral?
A valid referral is when a prospective Subscriber (not an existing Saasu user) clicks on your unique Saasu Partner link which logs a record in our database.
My client did not use the unique link to sign up. Can I lodge the referral with Saasu another way?
Yes, you can notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Name, Email, Phone and Organisation
The length of time a referral is valid
If your client hasn’t signed up during their 30 day trial, then the referral is treated as stale and referral rewards won’t be paid. So it’s in your interest to have your client or referral sign up in a timely manner.
Does referral rewards include tax?
Rewards paid to a partner will include GST/VAT and these rewards are calculated on the tax inclusive price of the paid referral.
Can I continue to receive discounts on my subscription if I sign up for referral rewards?
Yes, for clients under your subscription, you will receive discounts, and for clients outside your subscription, you will receive referral rewards.
I'm not an Australian registered Accounting or Bookkeeping business. Do I qualify?
The Saasu Partner Program is only open to registered Australian Tax and BAS Agents.
How long will I receive referral rewards for?
You will receive referral rewards for the length of time your client stays with you and Saasu. If they cancel their file or disengage with your company, the referral rewards ceases.
Why can't I get paid on all the clients I already referred to Saasu in the past?
We are happy to add these clients to your referral rewards but we don't back date payments of Referral Rewards. They only apply from when they are added to your list of referrals in our systems.
Can I move my clients out of my subscription, so I can claim referral rewards?
Yes, you can. However it may not take effect until the beginning of the next billing cycle. To make the request, email email@example.com with details of where it is moving from/to.
Should I notify my client I'm receiving Referral Rewards?
This is for you top decide in consideration of the laws and/or professional code of conduct that apply to your type of business. Notifying clients can also help in maintaining an open and professional relationship.

When am I invoiced for the files in my subscription?
Saasu will automatically send you an invoice on the anniversary date of when you signed up as a Partner, rather than the date a file is created. The balance due will be pro rata, taking into account what date a new file has been created.
Saasu subscription payment options
You can pay using a credit card, direct bank transfer or PayPal. More details are available on our Pricing page.
Changes to Partner billing contacts
You need to let us know if your billing contact is changing as soon as possible. Email accounts(at)saasu(dot)com with the new billing contact details, so we can ensure all communications and rewards are being transferred to the correct account. You must be the current billing administrator to update this information, so please advise us ahead of time.
How do migration rebates work?
Forward the invoice you sent to the client for the cost of migrating over to Saasu as proof of the work completed to email@example.com. Saasu will then rebate to a maximum of 1 year's subscription when that client has paid Saasu. The rebate will not exceed the cost of the work you charged, if the cost of the work is less than the 1 year subscription total. The total rebate will then be that invoiced amount.
Can I receive both referral rewards and migration rebates?
Yes you can, provided that they are not concurrent to one client. So if you are claiming migration rebates for NEW CLIENT, you will not receive referral rewards while you receive rebates (until the rebate ceases after 12 months, in which case referral rewards will commence.)
Disputes or issue with a client
You need to keep records of any attempts to resolve these issues with the client. Any unresolved disputes, negative representation of the Saasu brand in social media, marketing or any other sense may result in removal from any listings and cancellations on any discounts applicable.
