Is there any interest charged by FlexxPay?
No. FlexxPay is not a credit solution and there is never any interest charged or paid by the employee.
Is FlexxPay a consumer loan provider?
No. FlexxPay is a purely a technology solutions provider for employers. It is not a credit solution.
Is there any cost for an employer to offer the FlexxPay service to their employees?
No. There are no running costs for the employer. Depending on the size and complexity of an organization, FlexxPay might charge a one time setup fee.
Is FlexxPay compliant with the wage protection system (WPS)?
Yes. Any access to income that is processed and transferred to the employee is marked as a salary component. This means nothing else than that the employee received part of his earnings earlier during the month, and the rest with the regular payroll. So during the pay period the employee will have received their earnings in full. This is what WPS cares about.
Does FlexxPay interfere with loans that employees currently have?
No. The maximum amount that an employee can access is 50% of their earned income. As per central bank regulations, the maximum loan facilities that can be given to an individual must never exceed 33%-50% of their earnings. The labor law states that no deductions for loans of more than usually c. 10% (may vary between countries) may be done from someone’s monthly earnings. So a loan facility will never conflict with FlexxPay income access service.
What happens if an employee does not come to work or is absconding?
The maximum amount that an employee can access is 50% of their earned income. So if an employee does not show up or is absconding, the company always has “a buffer” as a backup. The company should change the status of an employee to “on hold” on the FlexxPay platform so that further access to income is not possible.
Does FlexxPay process payroll?
No, FlexxPay does not process payroll. The employer or their designated payroll provider processes payroll.
Does FlexxPay integrate into an employer’s HR or payroll system?
FlexxPay does not require any system integration with any of the employer’s systems. The employer simply signs up to FlexxPay and will then receive a username and set a password to access the platform. Once an employer is enrolled, all employees automatically qualify to use FlexxPay services. FlexxPay can however integrate with an existing system, if the employer wishes so.
Does FlexxPay have an impact on an employer’s cash flow?
No. FlexxPay acts as an agent between the employer and employee. FlexxPay records receivables and the employer records corresponding payables for each income access that is processed. Amounts and fees are then paid by the employer to FlexxPay as part of the monthly recurring payroll process of the employer.
