Payroll Apps & Options for Small Businesses

It’s great when you’re small and don’t have to worry about managing employees or processing payroll with all the headaches associated with it. But growing businesses must eventually hire employees and you’ll soon be faced with the daunting task of selecting a payroll processor.

The easy way out is to go with the processor that works with your accounting or ERP business application as they have tight integration and often provide more of a turnkey service. This reduces some time requirements on your side but are often more expensive.

The most popular payroll service for QuickBooks is Intuit Payroll Processing because, well, it’s from Intuit and it’s pretty easy to get started. But there are many other options available including Gusto, Zenefits, Wagepoint, and SurePayroll (to name a few).

You should also consider some of the larger payroll processors on the market as all of them have customers on QuickBooks (and most popular accounting or ERP products) and will surely have integrations available to your system. Some of the market leading applications available include ADP, Paycor, Paychex, Sage Payroll (fka Sage Abra), Patriot Software, APS Payroll, Kronos, WebHR, and many others.

There will come a point in time when you are outgrowing QuickBooks or maybe you’ve outgrown the available options for payroll or other areas of your business available within the QuickBooks community. Don’t worry.

There are many options available including an upgrade to a midmarket cloud accounting application like Sage Intacct which offers the same great user experience with a lot more functionality. Need more information? Contact us today for a personalized demonstration.Read more here.
