Looking for a top small business 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.

Check out our directory of Small Business payroll companies. Browse reviews and ratings and scan by industry or specialty to find the company that's the best fit for you. (And, if you want personalized recommendations, tell us about your project.)
