Recently one of our Members posted a question to the Membership on the Academy listserv. She asked, “I have one fulltime employee and one part-time employee. Can anyone recommend a payroll service who will handle payroll, payroll taxes, etc.?”
Our Members responded with a few of their suggestions. The most common responses were the following:
“We use ADP (http://www.adp.com/solutions/services/payroll-services.aspx). You can process the payroll online and the wages are direct deposit. Avoid discount payroll services because if they do not transmit the payroll taxes to the Bank/IRS, you are still responsible”
Another Member suggested, “We’ve been using Ovation Payroll (http://www.heartlandpaymentsystems.com/Products-Services/Payroll-Solutions/Ovation-Payroll) for a few years and it has been very easy to use. We’re a small office like yours and their fees are reasonable. They were recently acquired by Heartland Payment Systems which also has credit card processing capabilities, which we have found helpful. We have done both in-house payroll as well as payroll services. These services are worth every penny they charge.”
With this recent conversation among our Members we’re just wondering what other firms out there are using to process your payroll. Can anyone else give any suggestions?
