How do you solve a problem like Payroll?

As a business owner, you have enough on your plate — but payroll is simply a fact of business life. Like the moon, it rises and falls every month. Sometimes it sneaks up on you, leading to late nights spent plugging numbers into a spreadsheet or digging through old inboxes and invoices to pay your team. While you’ve probably found a system that’s good enough to get the job done (and get your team paid), we believe you deserve something better than “good enough.”

That’s why we’re kicking off 2024 by being the change we’ve all been waiting for. FreshBooks has built the perfect cure for your payroll pains: An intuitively all-in-one solution where all the tools you need are in one place.

But first things first…

    Why is Payroll Such a Pain?

    The ability to pay your team on time (and in full) and to file your payroll taxes is the mark of any professional business owner.

    Therefore, you’d think it wouldn’t be such a hectic process, right? Wrong! Many business owners still find payroll a hassle.

    The question is: Why?

    Well, first things first, business owners can have a difficult time figuring out how to pay their team the right way. And that can be a time-consuming process. As an owner, you are responsible for ensuring that your employees are paid fairly and accurately, as small mistakes can lead to significant accounting issues and unhappy employees.

    stress-free payroll

    In the ever-changing world of U.S. payroll tax laws, regulations, and compliance standards, owners must keep up to date with all changes to avoid getting into trouble with the IRS.

    On top of all this, if owners don’t have all accounting and payroll information available in one place it can be difficult to see an overall picture of business health — leaving room for potential errors and discrepancies in business planning.

    If only there were a simple (yet intuitive) way to run all your payroll tasks in one place — making the process as painless as possible.
