Plans and pricing

Three remarkable plans

Two-day processing

Sign up!

  • No monthly or annual fees
  • No setup fees
  • No charges at all!
  • We donate 25 cents per employee paid per pay period to the Thankyou Charitable Trust (up to 5 employees)

This plan is entirely FREE but still offers all of our great payroll functions. It will take us two business days to transfer the pay to your employees, after you've transferred it to us.

For example, if your pay week is Monday to Sunday, and you transfer to us on Monday night. Your employees will be paid overnight Wednesday - Thursday.

And, what's more, we'll give 25 cents per employee paid per pay of the subsidy money we receive for managing your payroll to the Thankyou Charitable Trust. (*to a maximum of $1.25 per pay)

To qualify for the Two-day Processing free plan, your business needs to be eligible for the IRD subsidy. Please use the box on the right hand side of this page to see if you qualify.

One-day processing

Sign up!

  • No monthly or annual fees
  • No setup fees
  • Just 50 cents per employee paid per pay
  • or

  • Free if your business donates $30 or more each month to the Thankyou Charitable Trust
  • Free for all donee status charities and not for profits

We will transfer the pay to your employees the next business day, after the money clears into our trust account.

For example, your pay week is Monday to Sunday, and you transfer to us Monday night. Your employees will be paid overnight Tuesday - Wednesday.

There is a very competitive charge of 50 cents per employee per pay.

You can choose to pay us the fee or give $30 or more per month to the Thankyou Charitable Trust.

To qualify for the One-day Processing plan, your business needs to be eligible for the IRD subsidy. Please use the box on the right hand side of this page to see if you qualify.

Overnight processing

Sign up!

  • No monthly or annual fees
  • No setup fees
  • Just 75 cents per employee paid per pay
    or
  • Free if your business donates $30 or more each month to the Thankyou Charitable Trust
  • Free for all donee status charities and not for profits

The quickest of our plans. This suits employers who need the fastest possible turnaround in paying their staff.

Employers can choose this option if they have an account with one of these banks:

  • Kiwibank icon
  • Bank of New Zealand icon
  • ASB bank icon
  • TSB bank icon
  • ANZ bank icon
  • Westpac bank icon

These banks all process transfers made to other banks several times a day during business days. That means our clients can transfer from one of these banks to our BNZ Client Trust account before 6pm on a business day and that transfer will make it to us in time for us to pay their employees that night.

For example, your pay week is Monday to Sunday, and you transfer to us Monday night before 6pm. Your employees will be paid overnight Monday - Tuesday.

There is a still-very-reasonable charge of 75 cents per employee per pay.

You can choose to pay us the fee or give $30 or more per month to the Thankyou Charitable Trust.

To qualify for the Overnight Processing plan, your business needs to be eligible for the IRD subsidy. Please use the box on the right hand side of this page to see if you qualify.

Note! Avoid using 'Bill Payment' when you transfer for overnight pays, as they are usually processed AFTER we process our batch payments

Direct debits

  • Setup fee: $50.00 once for the lifetime of the account
  • All other plan options apply as above
  • EXCEPT!

  • We cannot process overnight pays with Direct debit

Opt into our direct debit service! Direct debit saves you the extra hassle of manually transferring funds across to us for each pay you create and reduces the risk of error by letting you initaite a debit directly from your account. It is one of the only services that attracts a setup fee (one-off, $50.00) to offset the bank's fees for the lifetime of the account.

Because direct debits are processed by banks overnight, and we have to wait until the following day to track the funds for your pay, we cannot process this type of pay with our own overnight plan.

Plans in more detail

The key difference between the plans is the processing time: between us receiving the pay transfer from you, and then us paying your employees.

There are no hidden costs apart from our optional Direct Debit service which has a one-off $50.00 setup fee applied. These fantastic pricing plans are made possible by the IRD’s payroll provider subsidy scheme.

All options are without obligation and you are free to cancel at any time. You can even switch week-to-week between plans!

The One-day Processing and Overnight Processing plans allow you to donate to charity instead of paying fees to us. Read more about Thankyou Payroll’s enthusiasm for giving.
