Delivering an efficient, accurate, and sustainable payroll service to the schools of New Zealand.

Education Payroll is responsible for paying around 92,000 teachers and support staff in around 2,500 schools every fortnight. It’s approximately $198 million per pay period and $5.1 billion per annum.

We are building a fully online payroll service for schools called EdPay. We’re building it in stages, starting with the features schools have told us they want most.

A small group of schools have been trialling the service since March 2019, and we increased that to 200 schools in July 2019.

EdPay is the future of schools’ payroll in New Zealand.
