Payroll Software FAQs

When can I begin using software for payroll?

With ADP, you can start processing payroll at any time, not just during a new quarter or new year. If you’re switching providers, you can transition easily by asking for all the necessary forms and information upfront.

What is the time commitment when processing payroll online?

Compared to manual data entry, payroll software can save you considerable time. The features available in the package you choose will determine your total work effort.

In the event of a catastrophe or local emergency, how will workers get paid?

You can process payroll anywhere because ADP products are online. So, even if you’re relocated from your place of business, ADP’s payroll software lets you easily use a mobile device to pay your employees.

What if I’m already processing payroll with an accountant or bookkeeper?

Your accountant will probably appreciate that you’re using a trusted payroll service provider because it enables seamless data integration, reporting, and processing. This empowers accountants to do more work with greater efficiency, so they have more time to work on strategies that help you run a better business.

How much does payroll software cost?

Payroll software costs vary depending on the number of people employed by the business, its individual needs and the provider’s price structure. An annual base price usually applies and there may be an additional fee for each payroll transaction. When weighing payroll software costs, it’s important to assess the level of support provided with the product and how well it can integrate with other programs.

What are the best payroll solutions?

No two payroll providers are the same, but most high-quality solutions can:

  • Automate labour-intensive payroll and tax calculations
  • Deposit tax payments on time
  • Assist with inquiries from the CRA, should they occur
  • Help support compliance with constantly changing employment laws and regulations
  • Integrate seamlessly with timekeeping, workers’ compensation, insurance services and other HR applications
  • Provide support with unemployment claims
  • Protect sensitive client payroll data
