PAYE peace of mind

HydroWorks, based in Christchurch, New Zealand, specialise in the design and manufacture of large turbines and associated equipment for the hydro-electric generation industry.

The Challenge

The company has been involved in the design of water turbines and pumps since 2001, and 2015 saw unprecedented growth, going from 14 employees to 45. As a result, HydroWorks needed to streamline and upgrade their manual PAYE processes. They required a more automated approach to minimise human error and avoid incurringpenalties from Inland Revenue.

The Datacom Difference

HydroWorks trusted us to upgrade its payroll processes because of our proven track record with them. They decided to adopt NetPay, Datacom’s online small business payroll solution, to pay staff. 

The benefits have been substantial – time saved from not having to process manually, and reduced stress knowing the company is fully complying and keeping pace with all legislative requirements.

HydroWorks’ staff can now concentrate on growing the business, up-skilling staff and keeping them and their customers satisfied.

“Datacom have helped us greatly with keeping our support staff current and enabling our staff to be more productive. They’ve been exceptionally helpful with regards to not just PAYE but also settingup the NetPay system. I will not go back to doing the PAYE myself.”
