You can switch from monthly to annual subscription anytime and you will only be charged the pro-rated annual fee based on the remaining months in the calendar year. You can not switch back in the same year.

There is no contract for monthly subscription. However, you can not skip months.

# of employee is defined as the number of all employees with one or more saved paychecks in the account, even if an employee is paid only once. The number will reset for January of the new year based on employees paid in December.

For example, you paid $29.95 in January for annual subscription for 3 employees. In July, 2 employees left and you added 2 more employees. You now have a total of 5 employees on record (3+2) even though you are only paying 3 active employees.

Their payroll data are included in all payroll reports (941, 940, e.g.) and 5 W2s will be issued at the end of the year. You will be billed the pro-rated difference to the next subscription level. Since there are 6 months left (July to December), the bill is $30 = ($89.95-$29.95) x 6/12

You can manage multiple companies in your account and # of employees is the total in the account. 5 employees in 1 company is the same as 1 employee in 5 companies.

Payroll and payroll tax services

  1. Withhold proper amount of taxes on every paycheck – Acting like a agent for the government, the company needs to withhold Federal income tax, social security, State income tax and other applicable local or special taxes as required when issue any paycheck.
  2. Deposit payroll taxes to the government timely – The money withheld from the paychecks, together with the matching taxes from the company need to be deposited to the government regularly (monthly, semi-weekly or other deposit schedule).
  3. File payroll returns regularly – In addition to deposit taxes, every organization is required to file Federal and State tax returns, including Federal quarterly 941, annual 940, W2s and similar State forms.

Payroll is not difficult but it can be tedious. Except major corporations that have their own payroll departments, most organizations manage their payroll through payroll services.

ADP and Paychex are the traditional, full service payroll providers that process payroll, deposit taxes and file reports for their clients completely.

Internet enabled online payroll services. Intuit, leveraging its QuickBook, serves a large number of businesses and manage their payrolls online. There are other online payroll software offering similar services. For example, Paycycle started in 1999 and was acquired by Intuit around 2009. Surepayroll started in 2000 and was acquired by Paychex around 2011. Zenpayroll was started in 2012, offering payroll services online.

Some CPAs and bookkeepers also provide payroll services to their clients, though they typically need a 3rd party payroll software to calculate payroll taxes and generate returns easily.

Ultimately, all service providers perform the 3 required payroll tasks to meet the government requirements for withholding, depositing taxes and filing reports. Companies, large and small, need to meet the same regulations. is designed specifically for small businesses and actually received a US patent for its simplicity. Our company, C&S Technologies, has been working on payroll tax library since 1998. We started to work with the IRS and SSA on Income tax 1040s, payroll 941 and W2 online e-File since 2000. C&S is one of very few companies that were approved to provide e-File for both individual income tax and business payroll tax returns. for individual income tax 1040s filing was acquired by Liberty Tax several years ago so we now focus on payroll only.

We know how to compute payroll taxes, deposit taxes and file payroll returns. Because we built and own the intellectual properties of tax calculations, efile and ACH processes, we are able to offer the online payroll services at a much lower cost than other services.

Although there are many payroll service providers covering a wide spectrum of services and prices, payroll fundamentally consists of the 3 responsibilities for any employer. Since tax laws are defined by the government, the same input produces the same output regardless of the payroll companies, software methods or processes. Every payroll services are required to perform the same tasks as defined by the government.

Cost saving is important but the ease of use, flexibility for correction and adjustment and simple setup are also important. is not suitable for all companies though we believe it provides the easiest tool for small businesses to manage their payrolls easily, accurately and efficiently.
