Delivering an accurate, timely and secure payroll service to New Zealand schools.

Education Payroll is responsible for paying around 96,000 teachers and support staff in around 2,500 schools every fortnight. That’s approximately $231 million each pay period and $6.0 billion each year.

We deliver a reliable, accurate and increasingly effective and efficient payroll service to schools, using EdPay, an online portal and we support schools to deliver the pay to their staff.

The complexity of the schools’ payroll system is constantly evolving, and we work to make things as easy as possible for our customers – designing our products and services with schools, for schools.

It’s the combination of people, processes and cutting-edge technology that enables us to do this well. Our agile approach enables us to be flexible and deliver a reliable, accurate and increasingly effective and efficient payroll service to schools.
