Education Payroll Limited (EPL) was formed following a decision to transfer ownership and management of the schools’ payroll service from Talent2 to a new government-owned company.
A transition programme was put in place to establish the new company, and on 17 October 2014 the service was transitioned to Education Payroll Limited.
EPL is a core part of New Zealand’s education sector and manages the payment of the people at the heart of our education system.
We are responsible for paying around 100,000 teachers and support staff in around 2,500 schools every fortnight. We pay approximately $190 million per pay period and $4.9 billion per annum.
