The Best Payroll Processing Companies in Canada

Looking for a top payroll processing service in Canada?

A typical payroll cycle in the United States is every two weeks. This means employees are paid after a two-week period on a designated date such as the 15th of the month and 30th of the month.

Payroll processing accounts for hours worked, deductions, and taxes. If you're a small business, you may start off manually processing payroll. As you can image, manual payroll requires carefully tracking work hours and taxes and doing the math for each pay period. As your business grows, we suggest investing in a payroll company to help you manage payroll. A payroll management system also can help you track work hours, deductions and taxes automatically for each employee.

Popular payroll management systems include Paycom, Paychex Flex, Rippling, BambooHR, and Gusto.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top payroll companies in Canada. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs.
