“Having used many different payroll providers in the past, I do recommend if any organization is looking for a payroll provider that they consider Advance Payroll Services based on the responsiveness of service, flexible reports, and the ability of staff to access their records online.”
Advance Payroll Services has worked with DDI Asia / Pacific International Ltd since July 1999. I have found since my time in dealing with Advanced Payroll that their knowledge and service is professional, timely and proficient.
Outsourced payroll is a cost effective solution for small and medium sized companies.

“I have no hesitation in recommending APS as a highly professional, efficient, responsive, experienced and affordable solution to anyone seeking a payroll services provider.”
It is with great pleasure that I provide this reference and recommendation for Advance Payroll Services (APS).
Laser Clinics Australia have been a client of APS since 2009 and consider APS a valuable partner to our business. During this period our business has carved a new niche in the cosmetic clinic industry with an expansion seeing our clinics established in over 40 locations throughout Australia. During this exciting growth period, we have needed to grow our payroll services accordingly.
With each of these new expansions, we have been able to face each challenge in relation to our payroll requirements with great confidence knowing that all legal requirements and our employees needs have be met and exceeded with professionalism, courtesy and respect by the friendly approachable and very experienced team at APS.
I have no hesitation in recommending APS as a highly professional, efficient, responsive, experienced and affordable solution to anyone seeking a payroll services provider.

“They provide an exceptional service with providing complete payroll requirements for our current 62 employees and their staff are always ready to assist in any way.”
The Wirtgen Group is an international leader in road construction and mining technologies. Wirtgen Australia Pty Ltd spans the country with branches in QLD, VIC, WA & our Head Office in NSW. Our workforce is diverse and sometimes remotely located. With Advance Payroll Services this poses no issues. We use a combination of their online interface, with hardcopy payslips for personnel who cannot access a computer.
We have been with Advance Payroll since February 2009. They provide an exceptional service with providing complete payroll requirements for our current 62 employees and their staff are always ready to assist in any way. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wishes to improve their payroll efficiency. The cost involved in outsourcing our payroll to Advance Payroll is counteracted with the time saved in our business by no longer having to complete this onerous task.

“I use Advance Payroll as a shining example of what I expect from an outsourcing ‘partnership’.”
As Finance Manager of a rapidly growing multinational I regularly review all of our arrangements with outside companies and assess the cost/benefits of outsourcing versus employment of our own staff. I use Advance Payroll as a shining example of what I expect from an outsourcing “partnership”.
We rely on Advance for all of our payroll needs and advice. Their professional approach to maintaining our records and improving our payroll system is second to none – as expected, our payroll is never an issue. In recent times, Advance has developed an online payroll system that is very user friendly yet secure.
Our staff can now view their records, change contact details and check on leave availability when they want. At the same time, our field staff can get their payslips anywhere and our management team can review their staff’s records as desired.
Like most companies, we operate in a competitive environment where we value understanding, availability, flexibility and true partnerships. Advance exceeds our expectations at all levels.

“Throughout the time that we have been working with Advance Payroll Services I have found that the ability to speak directly with the person controlling our payroll has been extremely beneficial and has greatly assisted us in bedding down our processes. Thank you for a great service.”
Earlier this year, a decision was taken to outsource our monthly payroll and after investigation into a number of payroll providers we engaged Advance Payroll Services to manage this process for us.
While not a complex payroll, there are a number of unique payroll arrangements in place and through clear and open communication, we were able to address and resolve any issues.
During the transition process we ran our payroll in parallel with Advance Payroll Services and this allowed us to identify any potential anomalies and put clear processes in place for delivery of payroll data.
The ability to adjust timesheet entry spreadsheets to meet business needs has also simplified the processing of data for the payroll processing and overcome the potential for incorrectly paying our employees.

“We receive all the services of a large payroll company but with a personal touch.”
Our company contracted Advance Payroll since 2002 to handle our payroll of at the time 70 employees. We have now doubled in size and Advance Payroll has provided a reliable and professional service every step of the way. They have accommodated to our systems which is forever improving and Advance Payroll have been more than happy to sit with us and find ways to make things work.
We receive all the services of a large payroll company but with a personal touch. They are always a quick call away when payroll and personnel queries arise and go out of their way to help which you don’t usually find in large payroll companies.
What an excellent service you provide us, we could not be any happier. Thank you for the past 4 years and to many more to come.

“When I compare APS to other payroll bureaus I have worked with, it is very apparent that APS are payroll specialists and are not just processing information.”
Arnold Stevens Finlay Pty Ltd has been aligned with Advance Payroll since 1999 and being a Chartered Accountants Practice we not only use their services ourselves but refer and recommend our clients to use their service also.
The team is always there to offer professional, effective advice which keeps us up to date with the latest Payroll requirements. This is all done with personal and proactive service. They are very much a part of our team.
It is never a problem to call, often giving only a couple of hours’ notice, to receive a termination payment or late payroll file. As a business we appreciate good service and recognize its value to a business. It is really the only way to stay in business. That is why we feel that really good service needs to be acknowledged.
Advance Payroll Services is extremely competitive from a pricing perspective and saves us the cost of additional payroll personnel and system costs. It also means payroll information is stored and maintained for us, with easy access if required.
