Payroll

Does anyone have a suggestion for a web based payroll service for less than 5 employees?

Do you have any experience on inexpensive tools?

Greg, whatever you end up with, will you post the results back here? I'd like to know what works for you. Thanks!

Xero (formerly Zen payroll) and Quickbooks Online are two good options. They cost roughly the same amount. At this point, I'd say that these types of services are mostly commodities and you're choosing an interface that you like better, as opposed to a feature set that one company has mastered better than the others.

QuickBooks online payroll is simple cost effective and a proven product. They also cover all states which may be the only thing they have over Xero.

We used Gusto (https://gusto.com/) before. Pretty modern, Zenefits bought them..

ADP is excellent, and if you signup via Costco Executive, you get an appreciable discount.

I've used ADP, Paychex, and Paycycle (now Intuit Payroll) over the last 16 years for between 2-25 employees, and Paycycle/Intuit Payroll is my choice. Inexpensive, paperless, online national compliance, and you can authorize an access account for whoever is doing your accounting so you don't have to bother with exports. No extra cost for additional pay types like commissions, paid time off tracking, bonuses, etc.

I used SurePayroll.com, back when they first launched. It was quite helpful and affordable. They've since been acquired by paychex. I vow never to have employees, but that's where I'd start if I did.

I used QBO for payroll years ago - inexpensive and to the point, no bells and whistles though. I am currently using Paylocity for 2 companies; one with 15 FTE and the other has 11 FTE--- the price point is right on and you can add modules as you grow.
