5 Payroll Services for Small Businesses

Small business payroll is a constant concern, and if mistakes are made, the IRS charges heavy penalties, to name just one problem that can occur. Here five payroll services along with their costs are presented for the small business owner's consideration.

Intuit Basic, for $20/month plus $2 per employee/month, will run your payroll instantly and calculate your taxes (but won’t go as far as filing those taxes for you). Their most popular package is called Enhanced, $31.20/month, which adds tax form completion, filing, and payment on top of that. And finally, their Full Service option will run payroll entirely, transfer data from other payroll services, and guarantee its accuracy -- for just $79/month.

…Like Intuit, Sage also offers different payroll packages depending on how big your small business is. If 10 or fewer employees, Sage Payroll Essentials comes in at the low price of $49.95/month. (For comparison, Intuit’s Enhanced plan would run you around the same price with fewer features.)

When you outgrow that stage, though, Sage has you covered with its Full Payroll Service, which is priced according to the size of your business and how often you run payroll. The full service comes with a dedicated payroll agent, a check delivery service, unlimited deductions, custom report-building, and additional benefits administration. — Jared Hecht, Entrepreneur
