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.
