By choosing a fully managed payroll system you can save time and money and leave the pay calculations to the experts.

Choose PayEscape Payroll Management Software For Your Business

Many businesses decide to process payroll manually on their own when first starting out. While this doesn’t incur third-party costs, it can be difficult as your business must keep track of many different types of employment records when you start paying employees. These records include income tax withholding, Social Security tax and federal unemployment tax.

When you have more than a few employees, the payroll process becomes very difficult to manage on your own. We recommend using fully managed payroll software if you are processing payroll for anyone other than yourself. Find more about our fully managed payroll services by talking to an expert today.
