Payroll Setup > Company Setup > Employer Details

You will need to enter a Trading Name for your company as part of the initial setup and we strongly recommend that you complete the rest of the information at the same time. You can also edit the information in this section at any stage by going to Settings > Employer Details. Each input is briefly explained below:

Trading Name

Enter the name of your business as it appears on your invoices and other official documentation. Your company registration number should not be included – you can enter it as an Additional Heading if required by going to Settings > Payslip.

Physical Address

This is the registered address of your business. This information is needed for filing with SARS and is also a legal requirement for payslips.

Statutory Information

If your company is exempt from the Skills Development Levy (SDL) you can tick the box in this section.
