    We just use a local bookkeeper. We Email over the hours total for each employee every other week and they emails us back with the totals for the checks and a stub for the employee. Also amounts to send to state and workmans comp. The total hours come from our reservation software.

    The big boys on thd block is ADP they have some packages for small businesses.

    If you are half way decent on excel you could do your own spreadsheet but most folks just like to send it out.

    My company is small enough yet to handle the bookkeeping and payroll all internally. Our bookkeeper is also receptionist / dispatcher as well.

    I would strongly suggest the use of a payroll service. If you make errors in deductions, taxation, and not knowing the laws of both the state and feds the fines and penalties will make the use of a service look like a bargain! Also, don't be cheap and steer away from the large payroll companies. If you use a small company and they go out of business or don't file/submit the deducted taxes you are still on the hook.

    Since day one we are with ADP and are very happy with their service.

    Definiately a payroll company. It's also great because they can also handle all the HR. Which is a burden to keep up on if you're not big enough to hire someone specifically for that.

    We started using Paychex about two years ago. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
