My friends tell me Ace Payroll is great, but what if I don't like it?

Ace Payroll comes with a 90 day unconditional right of return.

If for any reason whatsoever you are not completely happy with your purchase of Ace Payroll your money is refunded without argument.


A lot of payroll systems seem to have weekly or monthly charges based on employee numbers. Why does Ace Payroll not have these charges?

Ace Payroll has no per employee charges, no per pay, weekly or monthly charges, and no limit on how many staff can be paid.

To be honest, most per employee pricing is based on the idea that a business with a lot of staff can afford to pay more.

Over the years Ace Payroll has found no link between the cost of supporting a client, and the number of staff employed.

In fact, quite often there is more cost supporting a new employer with just a small number of staff, than there is supporting a larger employer with an experienced payroll person.

At Ace Payroll our pricing is upfront and transparent and years of efficiency gains and experience allows us to keep our expenses down and pass most of the savings back to our clients.


Your website makes Ace Payroll seem really easy, but what if I need help? What options do I have?

For 6 months after purchase Ace Payroll provides free 0800 phone support and training. This gives you ample time to familiarise yourself with the system and have all your questions answered.

If you need onsite assistance, we have a network of trainers throughout the country who can assist. Call 0800 223 729 or 0800 ACEPAY to be put in touch with someone local.
