Pricing & Charges is completeley free for development and testing in our pre-production TEST environment for as long as you need, the TEST environment has a few restrictions to prevent abuse but is essentially a replica of our production environment (see environments page for more detail on the restrictions).

You are welcome to continue using the TEST environment after your application is live for ongoing development and testing at no additional charge.

Charges apply in the production environment based on the total number of active employees that have existed in the previous calendar month.

You will be invoiced early in the current month for your chargeable usage from the previous month and payment will be taken using your chosen default payment method.

What defines an employee as active?

We've tried to keep this simple and put it entirely in your control by allowing you to deactivate an employee at any time based on your own business requirements.

Once deactivated an employee is no longer chargeable. The only restriction placed on deactivated employees is that they can no longer be included in any new payruns - thereby preventing any further payroll calculations for that employee. All histrorical employee data for reporting and compliance purposes is maintained and accessible, you can even continue to update a deactivated employee.

A PATCH request can be issued to deactivate an existing employee.

curl -X PATCH \ \
  -H 'Accept: application/xml' \
  -H 'Api-Version: default' \
  -H 'Authorization: {OAuthHeader}' \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Content-type: application/xml' \
  -d '<?xml version="1.0"?>

Hosted Pricing

Our hosted pricing model works on per active employee basis, this includes all hosting, data storage, ongoing compliance and feature updates, as well as technical support. There are no additional charges based on your pay frequency, a weekly paid employee costs the same a monthly employee.

We understand that integrating with an API such as ours should be viewed as a longterm partnership we therefore no longer publish list prices, instead we'd invite you to start a conversation with us so we can tailor our pricing to work with your existing business model.

Dedicated Hosting

We do offer on-premise hosting options for customers wishing to host their own dedicated instance of the API. This can be either managed by us or your own team; either way we will provide ongoing updates and support. This can be especially useful if you have internal systems that you wish to integrate with the API that are not accessible outside the corporate network.

Dedicated hosting is priced on a licence and support basis, this can be more cost effective than per employee pricing when processing large volumes of employees per month.

If you would like to discuss dedicated hosting options and pricing please contact us.
