What Does Wagepoint Do?

Wagepoint is a standalone payroll software application for Canadian businesses.  

Wagepoint Payroll

The web-based platform allows you to automate your whole payroll system. It lets you manage payments to employees and contractors, maintain compliance with tax remittances, and provide year-end reports. It also integrates with QuickBooks and Xero to streamline your accounting.

Wagepoint automates all payments by providing direct deposit to employee bank accounts and payroll remittances sent automatically from your business account. You can also set up automatic worksafe payments if you want to go that route.

Check out our article on how to set up and run payroll using Wagepoint for more details on how it works.

Use Cases for Wagepoint

Small businesses in Canada can pay employees and contractors using Wagepoint.  

Wagepoint also offers time tracking and time off modules so employees can record their hours and request time off.

Small Business Payroll

Wagepoint is a great option to make running payroll easier for small businesses.  We’ve used Wagepoint with hundreds of clients from a single employee company to businesses with over 50 employees and more than $10 million in revenue.

Paying Contractors

Wagepoint is also a great tool to pay contractors.  Just set them up in Wagepoint and run or schedule payruns for the pay schedule that works best.

Wagepoint also automates the T4A preparation process for contractors so you’re not left struggling to gather the necessary information every February.

Automate Worksafe Payments

Wagepoint also lets you automate your worksafe payments so that you contribute the appropriate amount each pay period.  This helps eliminate late payment interest and keeps those worksafe bills from being a surprise each year.

Prepare and File T4s

Wagepoint automates the T4 preparation and filing process.  All you have to do is review the T4s that Wagepoint generates and they’ll automatically be filed on-time.

Wagepoint Pricing

Wagepoint’s pricing is fairly straightforward with a base fee per pay run plus $2 per employee per pay run.

For example:

  • Pay 1 employee,  the cost is $20 base fee + $2 = $22
  • Pay 2 employees, the cost is $20 base fee + $4 = $24
  • Pay 12 employees, the cost is $20 base fee + $24 = $44
