Setting up Payroll, Suggested Solutions?

1 Reply

Hi BP small business owners 

About to add my first full time (contract) employees - in fact it's just 3 people, all of who will reside in different states, and will require bi-weekly direct deposit.  Unfortunately, I've never formally run payroll before...  and I'm not really sure how to select the right solution/app.  Should I go to my tax accountant?  Perhaps through my bank?  Excited to be in a situation where I can bring in 3 full time employees, but feeling kind of foolish that I have no idea how to handle this.

Please share the solutions that you found work well for a small # of employees or any other recommendations/advice.

With appreciation -- JJ

Our CPA does our payroll for us. He told me originally that it is a little more expensive than other payroll services but keeping everything under one roof, minimizes hassle.
