Looking for a top payroll service?

Payroll processing is how companies pay employees. Typically, HR or accounting is responsible for payroll processing, which involves calculating wages, withholding taxes and other deductions, and ensuring employees are paid on time. Most companies use a payroll management system to streamline paying employees. Popular payroll services include BambooHR and ADP. Payroll companies work with you to setup and execute on payroll. This may entail guiding you through the process of migrating to a new payroll service or using your existing service to complete the payroll process for you. When hiring a payroll company, make sure to ask about its experience with different payroll services.

That's why we've created this list of the best payroll companies for you to review. Read through company descriptions, former clients, and notable projects to find the best fit for your business. (And, if you want personalized recommendations, tell us about your project.)
