Keep your funds safe in a FCS-backed transaction account

See why Thriday is better for small businesses than Paytron
Supported by some of Australia's most trusted brands

Paytron is a tool for managing business spend. Paytron funds are not held in a FCS government backed transaction account. With Thriday, all your funds are protected up to $250,000 per account holder. Paytron is similar to Airwallex and is suited to businesses that have international suppliers and need to send money offshore. Paytron has integrations into Xero, so if you still want to pay for an accountant, all your data can be pushed into Xero. Paytron does not handle bookkeeping, accounting or tax, so you still need to use multiple systems to lodge your tax. This can lead to double-entry, manual handling and inconsistent reporting. Paytron has three different pricing packages with the most popular being $59 a month.

FCS government-backed bank accounts

Thriday issues bank accounts* as an authorised representative of Regional Australia bank. This means all your funds are protected under the Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) with a safety net of up to $250,000 for each account holder. Money stored with Paytron is not covered under the FCS.

Send invoices and quotes

Paytron doesn't provide any invoicing or quoting functionality which leaves you with no option but to pay for another tool that does. Thriday has a feature rich invoicing solution that allows you to send immediate, scheduled and recurring invoices. Once your invoice is paid, Thriday automatically reconciles the income and calculates your real-time tax position.

Make BPAY payments

BPAY is Australia’s most trusted way of paying bills. Thriday allows you to make BPAY payment with a daily limit of up to $10,000. Paytron is not part of the BPAY network.

ATM withdrawals

Paytron does not issue physical cards, so if you need to withdraw cash, or deposit cash via Bank@Post, there is no option. This makes it difficult if you are a tradie or retail business that gets paid in cash. Thriday Visa Debit cards can be added to Google or Apple Pay, and they can also be used to withdraw cash from ATMs.

Lodge BAS and tax

At the end of the quarter or financial year, when it comes time to sort out your tax, Paytron does not provide any services to help. Tax time when Thriday really comes to the fore. With Thriday all your bookkeeping, accounting and taxes are sorted, and you can lodge your files directly to the ATO. You can even take advantage of friendly tax experts to review your lodgment. It’s tax time in no time.

Expert tax agents

Paytron is just another payments service, so when it comes to sorting out your taxes, you are really left out on your own. If you have any questions you want to ask, you might as well jump on Google. With Thriday, you can tap into our team of tax experts, and get the support you need to lodge your tax correctly.

Open banking access

Because Paytron is not a bank, they are not part of the Consumer Data Right (CDR) or Open Banking framework. This means it’s difficult to pull your data out of Paytron and into third-party platforms in a secure way. Thriday data is available as Thriday is a Data Holder, meaning you can securely access your data in the apps you need.

Call centre support

Paytron provides live chat and the option to chat to a sales consultant. Thriday on the other hand gives you the option to speak to someone from 9 am to 5 pm every weekday. Being able to speak to someone on your terms is important when running a business.
