Jamaica! Welcome to Acupay Biometric Payroll. 

Under your Income Tax Act employers are required to deduct and remit P.A.Y.E. as a means of splitting the individual's tax into installments. 

Under the National Insurance Act employers are required to pay  2.5% of gross pay for employees between 18 and 65 (women) 18 and 70 (men). There is to be an amendment to the act in 2013. Please follow your local NIS site for details.

In addition to these statutory deductions there are other policies that your company may use to arrive at an employee's net pay. We at Acupay automate those policies using the most secure data collection method, fingerprints. All the employee has to do is clock in and out using the fingerprint and your payroll is processed.
