What separates SurePayroll's payroll services from the competition? Discover how we compare.
As a small business owner, you may want to roll up your sleeves and tackle payroll yourself. However, you’ll need to set aside a few hours each pay period to calculate payroll, deductions, write checks and pay and file payroll taxes to the different agencies. SurePayroll lets you stay in control and finish payroll in just minutes, so you can focus on your business.
Some payroll software methods can handle the payroll calculations for you and provide the basic paperwork, but you’ll still need to pay and file on time or risk IRS fines. Plus, you’ll need to download and update software. You can eliminate all of that and get automatic tax pay and file with SurePayroll.
Most online payroll services can handle the payroll basics, but it’s the key items you may not realize that make a difference. As the pioneer of online payroll, SurePayroll has the most experienced team available. Free onboarding, free labor law posters, access to HR forms, free mobile apps, an award-winning U.S.-based customer care team available 6 days a week and a satisfaction guarantee are just part of what sets us apart.
With payroll services like ADP®'s traditional options, you can submit payroll by phone or fax, but it’s on their schedule and at a high price. With SurePayroll you can run payroll wherever and whenever and still get all payroll taxes handled, automatic new hire reporting and award-winning support at about half the cost.

Questions to Ask Payroll Service Providers
In order to find the best payroll service for your business needs, you need to ask the right questions.
How many days before payroll will the company withdraw funds?
Expedited Payroll Options
What happens if I need to run a payroll on short notice?
Can the payroll service provider automate payroll for me?
Are the key taxes for my business supported?
Payroll Processing Time
One of the most important aspects of payroll service is also one of the easiest to overlook -- when will the payroll service debit your company account to fund your payroll?
- Many payroll service companies withdraw your payroll funds 4 days before payday.
- SurePayroll’s processing window is half that – just 2 days.
Cash flow can be tough to manage, and your payroll company shouldn’t make it harder than it needs to be.
Expedited Payroll Options
You may not realize it now, but chances are good you’ll need to run payroll in a hurry someday. You might simply forget to run payroll by your regular deadline. Or, when an employee leaves your company, state laws might require you to issue them their last check before your next regular pay cycle. Make sure the payroll company you’re evaluating offers expedited payroll!
SurePayroll has two expedited payroll options:
- Same-day payroll: If you’re really in a pinch, we can run payroll same day, if you’ve met the 10:30 a.m. CST deadline, and it’s a business day.
- Next-day payroll: Schedule your payroll by 3:00 p.m. CST for the next business day.
Imagine never running payroll again! If you have employees who make a standard salary or work a set number of hours in a given pay period, you can set up Auto Payroll and your payroll will process automatically, according to your set schedule.
- Works for both hourly and salaried employees
- We’ll send you a reminder about upcoming payroll, and the deadline for any changes you need to make
You’ll also receive confirmation once your payroll has processed.
According to the IRS, US taxpayers and businesses spend almost 8 billion hours a year complying with the Internal Revenue Code. And that doesn’t even include the array state and local tax laws with which small business owners must also comply.
Each year, SurePayroll makes hundreds of changes and updates to the tax engine that keeps clients compliant with more than 6,000 different federal, state and local taxes.
