Calculating your company's payroll can be quite cumbersome if you need to add a lot of data each time. Thankfully, using Talexio's bulk edit function, you may import data quickly and easily!

  • Generate payslips for your employees;
  • Distribute payslips via email and/or save them to employees' Talexio profiles;
  • Download reports;
  • Generate FSS documents (such as FS3s, FS5s and FS7);
  • Generate electronic lodgement files for end of year FSS submission.


To make use of this module's full potential, you will need to enable the following permissions:

  • Manage payroll; 
  • Generate employee FSS documents;
  • Manage benefits;
  • Manage employee payroll details; and
  • View employee payroll details.
