Monthly Payroll Processing.

We ensure timely and accurate monthly payroll processing run. It entails a very comprehensive process. It starts with the compilation of data existing, new and left employees, identifying the changes in salaries while doing a pay-run for the month. Furthermore, our process includes accurately calculating all deductions including MPF, voluntary contributions, ORSO, deduction of leave without pay etc.

A draft payroll report for the month will be provided to the company for approval, before proceeding to run the final payroll report.

We have the flexibility to manage the payroll run for employees working on different shifts, overtime calculations etc.

The monthly payroll reports includes employee pay-slips that can be downloaded from the employee portal or the employee app.

In short, our focus is on being both timely and accurate.

New Employee Onboarding.

A new employee joining your team is a special occasion. It would be very encouraging for the new employee to know that their payroll database is immediately set-up and ready for their first pay.

When a new employee is appointed and intimated to our team, we will immediately update the database with the personal particulars, HKID number and salary details. This information will be captured in the next payroll run.

The Form IR56E to be filed with the Inland Revenue department (IRD) will be prepared.

Retiring or Leaving Employee.

We believe that an ex-employee is the greatest ambassador for your company. It is essential therefore to ensure their exit is as smooth as possible. We play our part in ensuring just that.

The database will be updated to record all attritions. We prepare the Full & Final settlement statement in compliance with the Company Policy as well as the Labor Laws. We ensure that this information is reflected accurately in the next payroll run.

The Form IR56F and/or IR56G to be filed with the Inland Revenue department (IRD) will be prepared.

Leave and Attendance.

We have a system that provides the flexibility for an employee to apply for leave, check his leave balances and manage his leave seamlessly through the employee mobile app provided by us.

Simultaneously, their line manager would be able to approve or reject the application on the manager app.


We ensure that you are fully compliant with all regulations relating to MPF, IRD, Employee Compensation Insurance, relevant provisions of Employment Ordinance etc.
