About iData

Payroll is a "Non-Core" process in your business.
Payroll is our business.

Payroll is also a very sensitive process that needs to be handled with care and professionalism. Would you trust such a delicate process to any company other than one with decades of continuity and experience?

Our history

International Data Services originates from the well-known ICL Data Services Division, which was established more than forty nine years ago. In the mid eighties ICL made it a world – wide policy that the bureau business was not their core interest and thus divested themselves from the bureaux.

During 1986 the South African Bureaux became an entirely South African owned and managed company trading under the name of International Data Services. In 1997 each branch of iData became independent business units with affiliations to each other when and where necessary.

In the Cape Town Head Office we have 35 employees, some of whom have been with iData since ICL days thus ensuring continuity of knowledge, skills and customer liaison. iData is based in the Black River Park Office Complex, in Observatory and currently processes payrolls for some 300 companies in the Western Cape alone.

iData provides professional payroll services for Monthly, Weekly and/or Fortnightly paid employees for any size of company, ranging from five to two thousand employees. Our payroll service is fully comprehensive and we run the process from start to finish. You supply us the input and we handle the rest. We truly are your off-site payroll department.

Processing off-site ensures Confidentiality and Security and our expertise removes the risks of non-compliance with legislation. In addition to these, there are many more advantages to outsourcing your payroll to iData.

All this done at a single monthly fee – no hidden costs.
