  • Improved Accuracy: eliminates human errors in payroll calculations, ensuring precision, boosting employee trust, and mitigating compliance risks.
  • Improved Tax Compliance: stay current with tax regulations, reducing the risk of non-compliance and penalties.

Small Business Payroll Software Frequently Asked Questions

Yes and no. While you could do your own payroll for your small business you must be aware of the legal requirements and responsibilities of doing so. Complying with state and federal laws and regulations can be a full-time job. If handled poorly you could be on the hook for costly penalties from the IRS. Take the sure option and partner with a payroll automation solution like Connect & Simplify that combines software and subject matter experts for the benefit of your business.

The best way to do small business payroll is to outsource to professionals. While you may pay more for the service, it’s often worth it in the time saved filing payroll and worrying about compliance issues. Outsourcing offloads these responsibilities to a trusted provider with the experience to tackle any added challenges.

QuickBooks can be a helpful solution for small businesses looking to process payroll. We’ve found, however, that as you grow its capabilities become limited for your growing business. Connect & Simplify’s payroll software is built to scale up when your small business scales up. And our account representatives are with you every step of the way to provide support when you need it.
