Full-Service Payroll

Let Us Handle Complex Payroll Work

Let us fulfill your payroll needs so you can get back to what you enjoy best—running your business. In today's hectic business world, it's a challenge to juggle all of the daily tasks that keep your business running efficiently. One of the most time-consuming tasks any business owner faces is payroll. Processing payroll involves much more than simply handing out regular paychecks. There are taxes, deductions, changes in payroll laws, year-end documentation, and more to worry about. Those headaches stop here.

By entrusting your payroll responsibilities to us, you turn this complicated administrative chore into a trouble-free function in your business that is both cost- and time-effective. If we're handling your payroll, there's no need for you to staff an employee dedicated to this task, and no need to maintain your own payroll system. As your experienced payroll partner, we will handle all of your needs, including check processing and printing, direct deposit, W-2 and 1099 processing, filing up-to-date quarterly and annual payroll taxes, and reporting. Better yet, all of our services are offered electronically, saving you time, money and reducing costly mistakes. Your employees will enjoy secure online access to their paycheck stub information and W-2s—eliminating hours of distribution time.

Background Checks: Do you know who you are hiring?

The most common answer would be "not really". For this reason, background checks along with drug testing are cruicial steps when considering candidates. Don't just rely on resumes and interviews, get all the information you require to determine if an applicant is truly right for a position within your company.

Bad Hire

It has been proven that companies that perform background checks and drug testings greatly reduce the risk of being a victim of employee theft, fraud, or embezzlement. Background checks expose past criminal record if it exists, and prevents your company from losing thousands of dollars because of a bad hire.

Potential Issues

Performing background checks on applicants and current employees is an effective way to uncover potential issues that could affect your business. National Crime Search, our professional partner, offers many screening options that are convenient. Therefore, allowing you to make quick decisions when considering an applicant, with all the confidence you need to protect your business.

"Pay As You Go" Workers' Compensation

Many of our clients take advantage of paying workers' compensation premiums using our monthly payroll data transfer to provide an up to date amount due by the month.

Monthly Calculated Payment

This monthly calculated payment lets the business stay in control of cash flow by eliminating the large down payment, monthly premium payment, and avoids year-end surprises.

This monthly calculation saves time with no checks to write and audit activities are minimized.

In three easy steps, our team can help you
find your path to a sustainable, profitable business
and more individual freedom.
