ADP SmartCompliance

ADP SmartCompliance is well suited when it comes to providing a Tax Summary. The ADP 'SmartCompliance portal is user-friendly and lets you know if you need to work and tasks or are in great shape. It also has a good notice of notifications and lets you know when something needs to be resolved.

Square Payroll

Honestly, I feel that Square payroll is well suited for most sized small to medium businesses. The option to pay both W-2 employees and 1099 contractors is very flexible. At only $5 additional per employee, it scales well. And all of the appropriate forms are filed for you, so there's no need for an expensive accounting firm. One thing that could improve is the explanation of what to expect at the forefront of implementing W-2 employees. Many employers may not understand how the process will affect them money-wise when it comes to paying the taxes, etc. It may scare them off from using a W-2 instead of 1099, which have very different impacts on the employee's tax situation as well.

It could use a mobile-friendly interface. Other than that it's a simple layout and non-cluttered which allows you to get done what you need to get done. No unnecessary dodads or distractions.

Alternatives Considered

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason
Michelle Gagnon profile photo
Cheaper and easier to implement Square payroll versus the competition. Accessible to the small business. Doesn't have a learning curve. Quick deployment to usage/adoption. The other options don't compare when looked at feature for feature vs. price.
