  • Paychex is an excellent online payroll service provider that makes payroll processing to be simple and thus eradicates the numerous headaches that are characteristic of doing it all alone. The fact that it handles your tax compliance excellently and ensures that payments are done in time is a great boost for your business as you would never get penalties for providing inaccurate information on tax.

  • What do you like best?

    See the title! this is an excellent solution for a small business. They look after everything, and my accountant found it very easy for his purposes.

    What do you dislike?

    Nothing really. good product, inexpensive.

  • I use Paychex for my payroll, payroll taxes, unemployment insurance, and related admin. It works, it’s amazingly simple and hassle free, and it saves me time and ultimately money. And your small business is probably the same – your skills as a business owner are probably best used elsewhere. Use your skills and talents to do what you do best – run the company and make money. Outsource the rest.

    Paychex Flex is overall a very powerful payroll processing platform. It is easy to use and offers those with minimal payroll experience an easy to grasp system that can handle all kinds of variations a payroll clerk may encounter, including hourly vs salary employees, expense reimbursements, and hours tracking in an environment that is user-friendly and very clear and concise.

    Pros :

    • The biggest perk I encountered with Paychex Flex was the ability to view and submit changes to personal payroll information online in a secure environment.
    • It is very clear and easy to follow each line item that may be contained on a paycheck for a specific employee, and gives good detailed information that an employee may otherwise not be privy too.
    • The ability to itemize deductions and even account for situations like a payroll advance or itemized deduction/reimbursement requests for instances where an employee may have a specific situation that calls for it is a very nice perk as well.

    Cons :

    • The downside to this software that I encountered was the lack of integration with applications outside of Paychex’s library of partners, and more so with our CRM, Salesforce.
    • If there was the ability to have this platform live with where a CRM where our employees spend the majority of their time, that would be terrific.
    • My second complaint was the fact that the software didn’t provide a very good search function to locate specific records for an employee.
    • You had to sort through the numerous paycheck documents in the queue to be processed if you had to make a change, and that could prove to be cumbersome if you have a large number of employees.
    • Support from the Paychex team usually took a business day or more for specific questions transmitted via email, and long hold times on the phone as well which could prove disastrous if you were on a time crunch to get a last minute change submitted prior to the run of payroll.
