Frequently Asked Questions

Payroll software is a digital payroll solution for managing and automating the employee payment process. Common features include calculating employee wages, subtracting withholdings and deductions, and generating the direct deposit file. When you use a payroll solution, the process is automated for ease of use without taking away your ability to edit wages or deductions to accommodate special circumstances.

The benefits of an online payroll solution include:

  • Reduced time spent on payroll processing, leaving you with more time for strategic initiatives.
  • Improved compliance with state and federal laws and streamlined tax filing processes.
  • Decreased likelihood of costly payroll errors.
  • Easier access to essential documents for employees through self-service portals, including pay stubs and W-2s.

Cloud-based payroll software is hosted online and accessed through the internet, rather than software installed on your business premises or through an outsourced solution. This allows HR professionals and employees to securely access payroll information and functionality from any location, at any time, even if they aren’t in the office.

Switching payroll providers doesn’t have to be complicated.

  1. The first phase involves requesting a demo and proposals from your candidate payroll vendors.
  2. Once you’ve chosen a new provider, you’ll need to review your current payroll contract and request pertinent documents (like payroll records, employee information, and other tax related forms).
  3. Before you officially make the switch, coordinate tax filings, and let internal stakeholders know about the change – then you can officially transition and go live with your new payroll solution.
