Change of ownership


Today marks an important and exciting time for AccessPay, and for our valued clients and their employees. We are pleased to advise that AccessPay has been acquired by Smartgroup Corporation Limited, effective 2 May 2017.

Smartgroup is listed on the Australian stock exchange and is one of Australia’s leading providers of employee benefits and workforce optimisation services, administering salary packaging and novated leasing on behalf of over 220,000 people. Smartgroup has been consistently recognised as one of Australia’s most innovative and customer-centric companies, and is a welcomed partner for AccessPay.

Smartgroup has a proven track record and significant expertise in servicing the PBI sector. In the coming weeks, AccessPay will be working closely with Smartgroup to complete the coming together of our businesses with Smartgroup becoming the parent entity. In doing so, AccessPay will be able to pass on unprecedented levels of scale and support for your employee benefits program.

In considering such a change, we have placed significant emphasis on Smartgroup’s commitment to the ongoing operational excellence of AccessPay to ensure the continued delivery of positive client outcomes to our valued and loyal customer base. To that end, Sarah Haas, Chief Commercial Officer, will continue with AccessPay to provide day-to-day leadership and Sam Octoman will be the General Manager, Technology and Compliance of AccessPay.

Since founding the business, Ian and I have been focused on delivering client service excellence and will both be continuing our involvement with the business on a client advisory panel. In addition, Ian will be continuing as a Director of AccessPay Payroll Solutions Pty Ltd.

I look forward to our dedicated team continuing our strong service outcomes for your organisation and your employees, and welcome any questions you may have on this exciting change in our business.

Please feel free to contact myself on 0419 250 544, Ian on 0409 539 550, Sarah Haas on 0439 850 063 or your Client Service representative.

Kind regards,

Grant Octoman
Managing Director
