Compliance Audit:

An independent appraisal of a company’s HR and related practices, which enables us to identify areas of compliance or non-compliance, and to provide a plan for the employer to mitigate risk.


Workplace Training:

One of the most important facts for an effective workplace is having continuous workplace training on a variety of subjects, where employees are kept up to date with changing legislation as well as changes in company practices. Workplace training is separated from external accredited training.

Policies & Procedures:

We review existing or develop new policies and procedures for the workplace and provide workplace training to employees prior to implementation.

Annual submission of workplace skills plans and annual training reports, with supporting skills development facilitator functions as required.

Grievance Management:

Establishing a proper mechanism to deal with grievances, and the subsequent facilitation thereof.

Workplace Discipline:

We help and encourage employees to improve, achieve and maintain standards of conduct, attendance and job performance. We also enable management to deal effectively with those employees who do not comply with the standards of conduct, attendance, and performance in the workplace. Undertaking of employer complaints and presiding over office services.


Workplace Negotiations:

Effective workplace negotiations and management of industrial action ensure that management retains the initiative when dealing with labour unrest; it prevents injury to persons and damage to property and it ensures that the workers either remain at work or return to work at the earliest possible opportunity.

Dispute Resolution:

Should it happen that an employee refers any termination or unfair labour practice to the CCMA, Negotia can represent the employer at the CCMA.

We take care of all your monthly payroll


What is payroll outsourcing?

We take care of all your monthly payroll requirements.

Like most jobs that you do not want to do, or cannot do, there are specialists who will take the issue of payrolls off your hands. We can do everything from calculating pay and deductions, to transferring money into your employees’ accounts and filing associated taxes.

We provide a cost effective, professional, and efficient payroll/administrative service to businesses lacking a payroll infrastructure.

Outsourcing these payroll functions to us means you do not have to hire in-house staff, purchase and maintain appropriate software, or worry about staying up-to-date with legislation.

We might just do part of the job, depending on what you need and your budget.

Why outsource payroll?

Running payroll can be complicated and time-consuming. Plus, there are many legal requirements, which means there are serious risks involved with getting things wrong. For this reason, many business owners prefer to leave it to the experts. It gives them more time and extra peace of mind.

In addition, we are often able to do your payroll at a relatively low cost as we use software to automate many of the tasks involved.

We make use of one of the best payroll solutions to ensure peace of mind. We ensure that employees are paid on time and accurately, in accordance with labour and SARS legislation.

What WE DO

We offer different levels of services that you can choose from depending on your needs.

  • working out pay rates (including benefits and reimbursements)

  • deducting taxes 

  • making any other deductions, such as retirement contributions

  • filing (and even paying) taxes at the tax offices 

  • making payments to employees

  • full-service payroll provider

As a full-service payroll provider we manage your payroll from start to finish. All you have to do is supply us with your business and employee data. We take care of everything else.
