What is included for free?
All of our basic services are available to every client and they are free (as long as you are paying 25 or less individuals). This includes all payroll processing, direct deposits to employees if using your own bank (you can also opt to use paper checks instead), tax calculations and forms, vacation tracking, outside software integrations, human resource functions, extensive reporting options, unlimited live customer service and support, and much more! There are two optional paid services if you choose to use them. If you prefer that we deposit and file all of your payroll taxes rather than doing it yourself with the tools we give you for free in the software, we can take care of that for you with our Payroll Tax Service. Also, if you prefer to use our bank to transfer direct deposit funds to your employees rather than your own bank (don’t forget you can also print checks if you prefer), we can do that for you with our Direct Deposit Service. All in all, the most you will ever pay us for both services is $30 per month.

Can I set up 401K deductions and contributions?
Yes! You can set up any kind of an earning, deduction, benefit, or contribution. They can be simple rates or

manually figuring anything out.
