For greater efficiency and reduced costs, many small businesses are now relying on payroll software programs like QuickBooks Payroll from Intuit or VersaCheck Payroll by G7 Productivity Systems. Today’s leading software programs automatically update tax rates, calculate federal and state tax liabilities, make tax deposits and filings, and even fill out tax forms.
When searching for the software that’s right for you, look for user-friendly programs that are compatible with your computer systems and that offer direct deposit or printable checks. Also make sure they can handle the size of your business. Some solutions can support 25 employees, while others will work for 500.
