Move to SmoothPay payroll

Migrate your data to SmoothPay at no cost*

If you're using another payroll product (even if it's on paper or spreadsheet) and need to move all your data to goPayroll - don't worry!

We can help you migrate your payroll data from most common payroll systems or via our migration spreadsheet template (available below).

(PLEASE NOTE: Sometimes it's just not possible to get all your data across - we'll do the best we can and advise you every step of the way)

* additional or repeat migrations for the same subscriber are chargeable


TeamViewer support
SmoothPay provides our own branded TeamViewer support tool for all remote support and training (we recommend saving it to your desktop for easy access).

Please note: TeamViewer access is mandatory for training and support - if you do not permit use of TeamViewer then your subscription will be without any support.


  • Since we installed SPG we have found it to be of tremendous value offering time savers and simplifying the overall payroll administration process. The reporting functions provide us with greater transparency & accuracy in payroll processing from start to finish. SPG is very user friendly and an easy to operate system. Nicola McColl, Financial Controller – Ah Liki Investments, Samoa
