Frequently Asked Questions

1) How much does SurePayroll cost?

SurePayroll fees are based on payroll frequency (such as weekly, bi-weekly or semi-monthly) and your number of active employees or contractors each pay period. There is a nominal charge for your year-end company filings, W-2s and 1099s. Our total fees each year average 30-70% less than that of ADP®. See for yourself with a free personalized payroll quote.

2) How long does setup take?

Our convenient online payroll enrollment takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Once you've returned all the necessary paperwork, you can process payroll within five business days and pay employees within seven business days. For certain emergency situations we offer one-day Express Enrollment — please contact us at 877-954-7873 to see if you qualify.

3) Do I need to wait until the end of a quarter or the beginning of the year to start?

No, you can start with SurePayroll at any time.

4) How do I know my taxes are paid on time and correctly?

We guarantee it. If you receive any notices from the IRS or other taxing agency, we'll work with them on your behalf. If we make an error after you have entered payroll information correctly and communicated any SUI rate changes, we will pay all fines.

5) When are tax monies deducted from my account?
All funds for a current payroll, including tax monies, are deducted one day prior to the check date.

6) Do you have direct deposit?
