Looking for a top payroll processing service in Chicago?

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.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top payroll companies in Chicago. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs. If you need more support, tell us about your project, and we'll match you with recommended companies.
