Dealing with payroll is a necessary part of running a company, but that doesn’t mean it’s a task that most business owners actively enjoy. Until now. ZenPayroll offers a modern solution for businesses looking for ways to streamline their accounting processes and provide employees with a clearer view of their withholdings and benefits.
Getting set up with ZenPayroll takes just a couple minutes. Check out your company dashboard to see a to-do list with descriptions of all upcoming payroll tasks and take a look at the “Important Dates” section to see when your next payroll is due. To run that next payroll, click on the “Run Payroll” tab and select the pay period you’d like to run payroll for. Take a close look at the hours each employee has worked and the gross pay each employee is due before clicking “Submit.” ZenPayroll will immediately process your payments as direct deposits or checks. State and Federal taxes are automatically calculated and submitted with your filings, pre-tax benefits (like medical insurance, IRAs, and HSAs) are all taken into account, and payroll reports are generated to allow you to review cost breakdowns and bank transactions. As the business owner, you always have the option to change your set-up at any time at no additional cost.
Business owners who feel more comfortable having their payroll managed by an accountant or bookkeeper can still take advantage of ZenPayroll’s tools. The platform offers a way for users to add their accountants as collaborators, for more hands-free account tracking and payroll management. ZenPayroll also offers a number of unexpected benefits and features, including HR onboarding for new employees, employee reimbursements, and vacation and sick day tracking for employees with paid time off.
