About Us

170 years experience with payroll

APS-Staff-SquareSteve and Mary started Advance Payroll Services Pty Limited over 20 years ago with a desire to personalise outsourcing payroll.

They wanted to take the load off business owners and executives so they could spend more time doing what they do best – their core business.


APS-MaryMary is the day-to-day powerhouse behind the intricacies and variables that come up when businesses outsource their payroll. Her 30 year experience in payroll means there is little she hasn’t seen. A friendly smile comes over her face when she’s talking to clients and staff alike. Clients feel they are ‘part of the family’.

Do you know any good Italian restaurants? Mary would love to hear about them. She loves trying new dining experiences. It’s not that she doesn’t like cooking; Mary gets very creative in the kitchen and even makes her own pasta!


APS-SteveSteve is our Managing Director (that just means ‘the buck stops at his desk’).

Steve has over 30 years payroll experience and manages the significant growth of this payroll firm. His decisions have enabled the staff to specialise and exercise their long term skills at Advance Payroll Services Pty Limited.

On his days off Steve is nowhere to be seen (unless you have a boat and know ‘where they’re biting’). He’s a happy man after a day of fishing and an esky full of fish to show for it.


APS-LesleyWe will forgive Lesley for being a ‘Maroons’ supporter (we all have our faults 🙂 ).

Lesley is an avid apiarist with her claim to fame (other than 35 years experience in payroll) being a triple award winner for honey at agricultural shows around Sydney. She proudly drapes her prize winning award ribbons over her market stall tables whenever she gets the opportunity to sell her honey.


APS-PeterI know Peter doesn’t look that old, but he holds the longest record in the company for experience in the payroll and HR industry – 40 years!

If you know some secret spots where the Bream and Flathead are biting then Peter will be your friend for life.


APS-PaulPaul has the impressive title of Customer Experience Manager (it’s just a fancy tag because he gives all new clients the ‘warm and fuzzies’ while he finds out their needs for payroll outsourcing).

Paul has had 40 years in the people business as an author, lecturer and marketer.

Ask Paul’s 11 grand children what a ‘black cuddle’ is. Between involvement with them and his and his wife’s aging parent’s needs, Paul has very little time for the much needed maintenance on his 3.5 acre Federation style property.


APS-Fiona2Fiona is another important payroll specialist in our office with many years experience.

Her weekends find her busy catching up with family and friends.

If you want to master the art of smoking ribs on the BBQ – ask Fiona, for her husband’s secret technique.


APS-PatriciaWhen Patricia hasn’t got her head in a spreadsheet here at Advance Payroll Services Pty Limited, she is enjoying spending time with her new grandson or walking her Doberman (she’s had five of them!).

Do you have an interest in early Australian history?

Then Patricia is the one to chat to.



Rest assured. Our payroll service is simple, automated and
responsive to your constantly changing business.
