We know the headaches you’ve had with computing your payroll month in and month out. We understand the struggle with deductions and percentages and formulas and more formulas... 

We know how tedious it can be when you're trying to prepare the payroll after someone has taken a loan, or you have to add leave allowance, or there's one addition, deduction or the other to be made at the end of the month before salaries are paid. 
But it doesn't have to be a headache. There is a method to all the madness, and we can show you how – with one class.

Over here at Upturn, we are process-driven and believe in step-by-step learning.
