Tell us about your company...
Flexiwage Limited was founded in 2016 to address two problems (a) helping employees who struggle to manage their income over a longer pay period by giving them the flexibility to determine their own pay frequency, thus eliminating the need for payday loans and (b) for employers who want to switch from a weekly payroll cycle to a monthly one, thus reducing their administration costs.
