I am looking for feedback on payroll service. I have used ADP for years but they are expensive. I am looking into Patriot Software, Paychex, Intuit, gusto.

Has anyone used any of these or other service that you like.

I just want to give them the hours and have them do everything else.

Thanks for any opinions.

I use intuit payroll service because I use quickbooks online for my accounting.
The upside of switching to intuit.
1. If you use quickbooks it feeds right into the program so you don't have to enter information.
2.It allows you to have several rates for one employee if you do prevailing wage jobs.
3.The online customer service is pretty good and quickbooks is the standard in small business.
4.Youtube has videos to help if you need them

The downside

1. Do your homework before you quit ADP. They dig their tentacles in deep. Make sure you have access to past 940/941 forms and history.
2. Are you under contract.
3. If you have a 401k program with ADP you might have to leave it there until you can afford to fire them as the administrator. There is a monetary out clause.

1. If you are not printing your checks then consider doing so.
2. Can you have someone do payroll and have them meet other needs.
3. Will leaving ADP cause increase your admin work.

For many years we did our own payroll. For part of that time we used QuickPay but Intuit was usually a hassle because we wanted the update discs (not electronically) and they would want to keep you buying new versions of Quickbooks. Then the tax agencies (State & Feds) went electronic, with websites that were a pain to navigate. :roll: We talked to our accountants and they have a service that is very reasonable. For $150 per quarter they take care of calculating payroll and taxes, doing the filings (Federal 941 and State items) and making payments. For us it was an easy choice since all that hassle is gone for what is a reasonable cost.
