What’s the cost?

Our fees are a competitive 1.75%, for our ‘Pay-Upon-Payment’ option.
We also offer a ‘Weekly In-Advance’ plan for an all-inclusive fee of 2.50%.

Refer a friend and receive a 0.25% discount for each successful referral!

If you choose to kindly refer a friend to our services, once they’ve received their first payslip, we are pleased to offer you an ongoing 0.25% discount while they remain with Switch Payroll. Receive additional discounts for each contractor referred. Your fee could be as low as 0.25%! Note, discounts do not continue if your referred colleague ceases using our services.

What is my pay cycle?

Using our basic pay option, Switch will pay you immediately upon receipt of payment by your recruitment agency. This is our Pay-Upon-Payment model – effectively ‘following’ your recruiter’s pay cycle. Our fee for this option is 1.75% of your gross pay.

For a more-regular, Weekly or Fortnightly option, we can pay you in-advance of receiving funds from your recruiter or client, for an all inclusive fee of 2.50%.

Mobile App Available

Switch Payroll provides a self-service Mobile App for timesheets-entry, account management and various other super-useful features!

Need to split payments to more than one account?

Switch Payroll’s payroll system allows you to easily split your net payments to various bank accounts (based on $ or %), if you so desire.


We cover Professional Indemnity ($20M) & Public Liability ($20M) as part of our comprehensive service. Switch Payroll also partners with a leading Private Health Insurance provider to offer discounted rates for our contractors.

Weekly Superannuation

We pay Superannuation, to our clearing house, within 7 days of the respective payslip. That is, Switch Payroll pays Super weekly!

Continuity of employment

Choose Switch Payroll as your payroll services provider and you can rest assured, for any role you undertake, you will remain a full-time employee of Switch Payroll, which is extremely favourable for financial profiling reasons – securing a home loan, for example.

Salary Sacrificing & Packaging

We offer Salary Sacrificing of additional Superannuation; business-related purchases, such as mobile handsets, laptops or tablets; professional memberships; or educational courses specific to your line of work. We can also salary sacrifice certain business related expenses, such as phone/internet bills. There is no additional fee to salary sacrifice. Please ask us for more information on salary sacrificing for your specific needs.
