Who we are

Payroll is the most sensitive part of any business

Acorn Payroll grew out of a very specific market need for an outsourced payroll, compliance and taxation company. These functions are typically highly specialised and very expensive making them rarely feasible for companies to have in house. Acorn put together a team of top specialists and opened doors in 2017. Acorn Payroll now has offices in Namibia and Zambia.

  • for your peace of mind

  • To deliver every time

  • That makes us market leaders

  • To ensure we exceed expectations
