Need a quick, easy and cost-effective way to process your company or client’s payroll? Is accuracy important to you? Do you want a payroll system that puts you in charge? Then you need our value-priced Payroll.
Payroll is a powerful, extremely easy-to-use software program. It automates your weekly, biweekly, semimonthly and monthly payroll of up to 200 employees.
Payroll is also a multi-year processor. Gone are the days of rushing to complete your W-2s before the first payroll of a new year. With Payroll, you can start the new year before you process your W-2s.
Time is valuable. So Payroll provides you with features to speed input and reduce your workload. Features such as the ability to enter time as hours and minutes as well as hours and fractions of hours. This unusual feature reduces your preparation time and ensures accuracy by avoiding manual time conversions.
Furthermore, Payroll allows you to interrupt your payroll processing. When you resume, the program lets you return to where you left off. So, if you forget to add an employee or if you need to change the data for an unpaid employee, you can exit, add the employee or change the data, and then return to your payroll processing.
In addition, Payroll handles cafeteria plans, fringe benefits, expense reimbursement and deductions for loans and advances.
Payroll has Registers available for the current period, any month, any quarter and the year at your fingertips. You can view these reports on screen or print them.
There is also a History report that shows all transitions for one or all employees over any period during the year.
Plus, you can print all Registers in detail or a single-line Gross-to-Net format.
Payroll’s flexibility gives you several different pay methods.
Pay automatically allows you to pay hourly, salaried or all employees one standard pay period. The process is completely automatic and hands-off until you choose the remittance method.
Time entry pays any active employee in the order you choose. It accepts reported tips and other earnings. It changes any of the twelve deductions, including deferred compensation. It posts overtime, shift, vacation, holiday and sick pay. And, you preview a check before you post it.
After the Fact lets you record manual checks and payroll information prepared by others. Data entry is quick with a special “bypass” key that lets you skip between columns.
You can also reverse entries or make adjustments to any period using the Cancel Check and Adjust features.
There is no need to wait for the new year to start Payroll. You can enjoy the benefits right away. Payroll has easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for recording the payroll you’ve already done this year.
Payroll has five remittance methods when doing check-writing payroll: a check with a preprinted top stub, a check with a blank top stub, a Quicken®-type format with a check on top, vouchers and Direct Deposit. All of the checks are readily available from Phoenix Phive.
You can also print your checks on a different printer than the one you use for reports.
There is also, for greater convenience and savings, an optional, extra-cost MICR Encoder.
Payroll allows you to put messages on the check. Users with laser printers can specify one or two stubs. Checks and vouchers provide current and most year-to-date payroll information to the employee.
There is even a separate field for the Payee Name on the check. This allows you to format names the way people like them plus save them in the proper Social Security format.
For example, an employee who is known to the bank as ‘Prince’ might have a Social Security Card showing his name as ‘George MacDonald Smith’.
With Payroll there is no more tedious totaling of each employee’s gross pay, Federal tax, FICA and Medicare base pay, reported tips, etc. Payroll automatically saves this information for you every pay period. To prepare your 941s, just select 941 and the desired quarter from the menu. The screen shows an image of the 941. You can make any changes you like. Then, simply enter the total of your deposits, click Print and Payroll will create your 941s on your supported printer. It will also print Schedule B for semi-weekly depositors.
Payroll also prints out a summary worksheet showing 941, State and Local information. This is useful for EFTPS deposits.
W-2s and W-3s are just as simple. Payroll prints them out on preprinted or our optional computer-generated forms with all the correct information. Just imagine the time and frustration you’ll save!
Payroll produces state Wage and Tax reports and listings on a Quarterly and Monthly basis.
State quarterly wage formats that are available now include Arizona, California, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Ohio. We add states regularly; please call to check.
You also receive generic wage reporting formats. You use these whenever the current proper state form is not available. You can change the way you format the data on these reports to more closely approximate the continuation sheet for your state.
Preprinted paper forms are available from Phoenix Phive.
Payroll works best with a Hewlett Packard LaserJet® or 100% compatible laser printer. However, it also supports Inkjet and multi-function printers. It uses preprinted forms and/or optional, extra-cost, computer-generated images.
You can control your company more accurately and efficiently with Payroll’s comprehensive reports. For example, the Sick and Vacation Report lists how much sick time has been paid and how many vacation hours have been accrued and used.
The Insurance Report helps you with Workers Compensation by reporting detailed earnings in each of the categories that apply to your company.
The employee data screens provide you with important employee information such as birth date, accrued vacation, date hired, last raise date, amount of last raise, review date and date of last promotion and year-to-date values.
Payroll also produces single line employee lists with or without pay rates.
Payroll allows you to limit access to your payroll information by assigning passwords. You can add or delete this optional protection at any time.
Payroll comes with two hours of support during the first six months of ownership. Support after this is available at a modest cost. To reach support, just call 480.483.0991 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. MST.
Payroll has a 30-day money back guarantee. If you decide to return Payroll, just call us and we will deactivate it and we will issue you a check for the amount you paid or credit your charge card.
We constantly improve and update Payroll. We add new features and modify government forms to suit the changing laws. As a new purchaser, you receive by download all updates issued from the time of your purchase to the following November 30. After this time, subscribing to our Annual Maintenance Service means you will continue to receive all these changes on a timely basis. (This service includes the 941 images plus changes to any included forms. However, it does not include tax table changes. Please see Tax Table Service.)
When you subscribe to the Annual Maintenance Service, you are able to download the latest release of Payroll. You will also receive a notice for every new release from the day you subscribe until the following November 30. So you can be confident that every new change in government forms will be there when you need it.
Annual Maintenance is required if you want to continue to print any government forms such as the 941 or W-2. It is not required to do checks.
When you buy Payroll, you receive the current tax tables for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and New York City. You also receive any tax updates issued by the Federal and the state you choose from the time of your purchase to the following November 30. After this time, when the tax rates change, you can use the maintenance function to change them as needed. It is a quick and easy procedure. However, if you prefer not to do this maintenance yourself, you can subscribe to our convenient Tax Table Service. This service does not include unrelated program changes. Please see Annual Maintenance Service.
The Tax Table Service carefully monitors the tax authorities. It then provides you, on a timely basis, with new tax tables by download whenever your Federal taxes, FICA, Medicare, state tax or state disability are affected. The Tax Table Service includes changes for the Federal and a single state. Additional state coverage, if you need it, is also available. (The Tax Table Service considers New York City a state.)
The Tax Table Service covers your tax changes from the day you subscribe until the following November 30.
The most convenient and attractive way to produce government reports is to have your printer make the entire form.
