    Looking for advice - hope I am in the right place :)

    Is there any particular type of payroll software that most companies would use? Example - lots of companies are using Workday in HR...

    I am looking to upskill right now and choose right payroll course....

    If anyone maybe even works in payroll full time that would be great!

    Cheers...

    do the ipass course and you will be able to do the calculations manually. Once you understand how to do the payroll manually and the logic behind the figures the software you use wont matter.

    Hello Irishguy1983,


    Thesaurus Payroll Software is probably the most popular on the market and very easy to use.


    They also own Brightpay Payroll which is their promoted one at the moment and which they will probably be migrating Thesaurus to eventually.

    They have a great backup service which is included in the price so no more hidden extras.

    Check it out on Thesaurus.ie and you can get a free trial version for 4 weeks to try before you buy.

    I second the recommendation for Brightpay, it is excellent.

    Sage Payroll (or whatever it is called now - their desktop offering) is very poor and dated in my experience

    Sage Payroll is popular as it's cheap but the software itself is old & dated (backend).


    Try courses on any of the web based payrolls as they are browser based rather installed programs.

    Our Cloudpay payroll software is browser based and we have a free trial.
    Over the last few months, many of our desktop users have switched over because of work from home.

    Anyone else any course recommendations? Many of the courses are old school/classroom every week type....Turn up at certain time, etc...I’d rather self paced learning - maybe similar to courses on UDEMY....

    This looks good but over 14 weeks - would rather get stuck in while I have spare time!

    I use sage professional and I cant complain. No issues so far, but i think it is a personal preference.
    When i did the payroll manual and computerized in 2017 i used Thesaurus payroll package at the time.
    I for me i found easer around sage - but like i said use the professional one. I run payroll for a lot of companies.

    Collsoft payroll is excellent and one of the cheapest. I'd highly recommend it. I process a fair bit of payroll for clients, from single owner to a company with over 100 employees.

    I agree. Collsoft is brilliant. The only thing holding it back is that its not online which is a must these days imo

    Highly recommend MegaPay from Intelligo. So many places seem to use it!
