When can I begin using software for payroll?

With ADP, you can start processing payroll at any time, not just a new quarter or new year. If you’re switching providers, you can ease the transition process by asking for all the necessary forms and information upfront.

What is the time commitment when processing payroll online?

Compared to manual data entry, payroll software can save you considerable time. The features available in the package you choose will ultimately determine your total work effort.

In the event of a catastrophe or local emergency, how will workers get paid?

You can process payroll anywhere because ADP products are in the cloud. So, even if you’re relocated from your place of business, ADP’s payroll software lets you easily use a mobile device to pay your employees.

Can a payroll software service provider integrate with my accounting software?

ADP automatically syncs with many popular accounting software products, including QuickBooks™, QuickBooks™ Online, Xero™ and Wave, to ensure a seamless transition of your data. Check with a payroll provider to make sure they pair up with your preferred program.

What if I’m already processing payroll with an accountant or bookkeeper?

Your accountant will probably appreciate that you’re using a trusted payroll service provider because it enables seamless data integration, reporting and processing. This empowers accountants to do more work with greater efficiency, so they have more time to work on strategies that help you run a better business.

Payroll Software Testimonial

Payroll is so quick it saves me a ton of time. Setting up new employees is also obscenely simple. Everything from tax withholdings to direct deposits are done in 2 minutes, max. Such a time-saver that I don't need to hire an HR person or additional accounting person.
