One of the main advantages which the Payboy software affords for its users resides in its intuitive payroll generation process. 

The system is able to automatically calculate unpaid leaves, claims, and time sheets submitted by employees. Consequently, it will generate an itemized payslip for each employee based on the figures provided.

Statutory compliance such as Central Provident Fund (CPF), Self Help Groups (SHG), and Skills Development Levy (SDL) will automatically be taken into account in payroll generation. 

The payroll system also caters to the generation of Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) income tax submissions.

Last but not least, the payroll system is also able to generate GIRO transfer files for local banks (e.g. DBS, UOB, and OCBC)
