If you're still processing your own payroll and issuing paper checks, you’re probably not taking advantage of all the options that are available today. Online payroll solutions1 can save you valuable time and lessen the chance of errors in your payroll and taxes. You might even find that outsourcing your payroll duties may free up valuable time you can use to build your business.

Many companies have complaints about doing their payroll in-house. According to the National Federation of Independent Business,2 the top five complaints are:

  • too many deadlines to keep track of
  • employee misclassification problems
  • generating W-2s with errors
  • calculating unemployment taxes
  • handling garnishments and levies

Keeping track of deadlines in particular can be daunting. There are deadlines for tax withholding, payments, and reports to state and federal agencies. When deadlines are missed or there are errors to deal with, major problems can arise. Rather than chasing deadlines, small business owners could make better use of their time helping the business thrive and keeping the cash flowing.

Tax-related issues, such as W-2 filings and unemployment tax calculation, can also put a strain on a business owner trying to handle payroll on top of their other duties. As the NFIB notes, unemployment systems vary from state to state, and this be tricky if the business employs workers in multiple states. This is just one area where errors can occur and cause other time-consuming issues.

The garnishments and levies rate may not be something you've had to deal with, but it can be a real challenge if you ever do, because it creates extra work that you have to manage.
