Pricing for payroll services is usually quoted on a monthly basis, with additional fees depending on: (1) the size of your business, or (2) the level of services included in the package. For example, you might pay $39/month for payroll services, plus $1.50/month for each employee covered. Expect to pay additional charges for each employee, or for multiple users who have access to the system. Also, expect to pay additional monthly fees for optional services such as employee benefits management, time and attendance tracking, or other advanced payroll services.
Some examples of additional charges might be $1 per month for each person with access to the payroll system, such as an accountant or a bookkeeper; or $10 per month extra for employees to be able to access their pay and benefits information online.
Year-end forms such as W-2s are usually not included in the basic plan and often result in additional charges such as $2 per W-2.
