About us

A collaborative team,

building and launching a

ground-breaking technology.

PaidRight was established as a A collaborative venture between PwC Australia and CSIRO’s Data61, working together in building and commercialising the ground-breaking PaidRight technology platform. $3b+ wages and 7m in pay slips have been checked to date producing new pay system discoveries faster and with more confidence.

Due to the complex regulatory structure and fragmented payroll systems, payroll compliance is a growing problem for corporate Australia, with possible criminal implications on directors, for industries such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, education, manufacturing and construction. PaidRight has outgrown the collaboration agreement and has spun out into a stand alone business.


PaidRight is comprised of a highly technical team skilled in computer and data science, complemented by experts in payroll compliance.
