Beginner friendly payroll management software

Reviewed on 13/07/2022

Pros

It's very simple to set it up for the first time. This complete payroll suit is all you need to manage and distribute companywide. Also, this software comes in handy in calculating taxes and deductions for leaves and other factors.

Cons

I liked everything about Patriot Payroll

I am kicking myself for not doing this sooner. Great support that is US based and I'm treated very professionally.

Pros

I had heard it was complicated to set up, but once I had everything in I realized that was a good thing. Payroll has gotten so much more complicated over the years, to have all the small parts done right was a work saver. I wasn't having to create multiple work-arounds and spend extra time double checking. The non-accountant business owner, should consider hiring someone for a short time, get it set up right, then sit back and let the program do it magic.

Cons

Because I prepare the payroll tax filings outside of Patriot I wish there was a simple report that listed the employee name, hours, gross, and full listing of SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. Currently I have to dig through the employees' records and manually write down the SS#. I know a lot of this is ID thief protection. But I have an IRS Tax Preparer Certification and they required me to be finger printed and back ground checked.

Reasons for Choosing Patriot Payroll

I was tired of being treated like a child. I do several Washington State payroll filings and like lots of other states they have quirky rules. I was having to amended too many of their filings. I was tired of cursing at the computer screen. I didn't like the data mining and the slow loading while they got all their mining software in place. On an annual basis I was paying more for junk than I was paying for my Wolter Kluwer/CCH Small Firm Services tax preparation software.

Reasons for Switching to Patriot Payroll

Once I tired it I was super excited about all that it did. The support was very available and both talked me through an issue and provided me with written instructions via email.

The price was great for smaller clients who have simple payroll needs for a few employees, however a price increase was announces, putting Patriot just about on level ground as other payroll software like gusto and Onpay, but without the level of support offered by their competitors.

Pros

The price was great for smaller clients who have simple payroll needs for a few employees.

Cons

The setup is a bit cumbersome and onboarding is limited in scope.

Reasons for Switching to Patriot Payroll

I chose Patriot first for it's affordability with simple clients who had simple payroll needs. When those needs were more complex, we started using another provider.

Working with Patriot software has been easy and worry free over the past years. The tax payments are made timely and are accurate. Customer service is available to speak with via telephone which is a major plus.

Pros

Ease of use and the features the software provides

Cons

As a full-service payroll subscriber there is no way to run a Form 941 without producing the entire quarterly tax report package. The workers compensation companies only want Form 941, so therefore I must use pdf software to extract this from from the package to submit.
