Streamlined Payroll Software for RSE EmployersRSE

At Crystal Payroll, we understand the unique payroll needs of employers in the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme. Crystal Payroll is a payroll software designed for RSE Employers. Our tailored payroll solutions are designed to ensure that managing your seasonal workforce’s compensation and compliance is a breeze.


Key Features for RSE Employers

We know that every industry has specific needs for how they pay their employees. This is why at Crystal Payroll, we have included features that cater to the agriculture, horticulture, and viticulture industries. And that also includes workers in the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme. Here are the features RSE employers love to have in their payroll toolbox in addition to the farm payroll features.

Automated Sick Leave Entitlements

Our system is meticulously designed to cater to the specific sick leave entitlements of RSE workers.

From the first day of employment, the system automatically tracks and accrues sick leave entitlements, renewing monthly until the ten-day threshold is reached at four months. This is in accordance to the guidelines set by Immigration New Zealand.

This automation ensures accurate sick leave tracking, reducing the administrative burden on your HR and payroll teams.

Seamless SWSAS Integration

Crystal Payroll is proud to offer seamless integration with the Seasonal Worker Superannuation Administration Service (SWSAS), providing a robust superannuation solution, essentially the KiwiSaver for RSE workers. SWSAS is run by Appello Services.

We pioneered this integration, becoming the first cloud-based payroll software to support SWSAS. At Crystal Payroll, we continually commit to building partnerships that create a better payroll experience for RSE employers.

Setting up SWSAS integration is a breeze with Crystal Payroll. Our intuitive setup process ensures that you can quickly and easily configure superannuation contributions for your RSE workers, ensuring they benefit from this essential financial security measure.

Proactive Compliance Updates

Our dedicated team closely monitors regulatory developments to ensure our system is updated promptly, keeping you compliant with the latest legislation without any hassle.

Whenever there’s a new update or requirement, we swiftly implement the necessary features or adjustments in our system, ensuring you stay ahead of compliance requirements effortlessly.

Our proactive approach means you can focus on your business operations with the assurance that your payroll system is always up-to-date and compliant with the RSE scheme regulations.

We have RSE staff from Vanuatu, Kiribati and Tuvalu and Kiwi staff and we also employ backpackers, so there’s a lot of record-keeping and you need good systems to make sure you keep on top of things and that’s where Crystal Payroll is good – particularly on piece rates.
