    VERDICT / With many great tools to streamline the payroll process and the ability to handle your payroll taxes, SurePayroll is a solid option for your business of any size.

    SurePayroll provides online payroll services for businesses of any size. It has also developed a management system in its payroll software called One-Click Payroll, which makes the process just a few seconds long, minimizing the countless hours it could take you to do payroll on your own. However, the system works best for payroll that is the same from pay period to pay period. If your payroll changes from pay period to pay period, you can turn off the One-Click Payroll setting.


    You can choose to pay your employees via direct deposit or check. If your employees would like to be paid by check, you can opt to print them yourself right from your own printer, or have SurePayroll print and mail them to you. However, if you choose to have SurePayroll print and mail checks, it costs you an extra charge each time. There isn't an option to pay your employees with pay cards.
