Payroll Firms Ease the Strain on Small Businesses

Typically, a company’s human resource official will contact his Paychex representative to confirm who worked what hours during the pay period. Then Paychex handles the rest.

“What we really are is an accountant,” Johnson said. “We don’t advise on personal taxes.”

The growing dependence on electronic banking and accounting has streamlined operations but also caused other concerns. Johnson said Paychex has a healthy-sized IT department to help ensure payroll always goes out and that information is protected.

“In the future, it is going to be very interesting,” Johnson said. “Technology is quite a challenge. The future is going to be more technology. It’s all about getting paychecks to clients and making their lives easier.”

In any kind of weather.
