  • Patriot allows the entire team to be on the same page when it comes to a campaign or donor. All of the information is in one place to see how much a donor gave or communication with that donor by a specific team member.
  • It provides comparative historic data and donor analysis. The organization of donations by appeal allows teams to know which campaigns were successful in previous years.

  • It saves me time; I run two payrolls a month and it takes me about 10 minutes a month total
  • I get peace of mind: their full service payroll takes care of all the tax paperwork so I don't do it wrong and incur costly penalties

  • It boosts my time available for client-facing activities by not having to spend as much time processing payroll.
  • It helps me deliver accurate reports to my CPA at tax time regarding employee wages and employer taxes.
  • Through the online portal, I can easily track year-to-date taxes my company has paid.

  • I am better able to help S corp owners with their whole picture, calculating reasonable compensation and then helping them to run it through payroll properly.
  • It is so affordable that it is easy to use to get people compliant when necessary.
  • It has taught me a lot about how the payroll process works so I can better talk to the extent to which it is a pain.

  • My market niche is small religious non-profits--a group not known for being well funded. That means I have to operate on a slim margin. Prior to switching to Patriot I was on the verge of being squeezed out of the payroll prep business. My then-current provider was about to raise their fees....again. I had been with them for about three years during which time their wholesale fee had already almost doubled and another huge bump was going to mean I would be paying almost 150% more than when I began with them. The quality of Patriot's service coupled with their affordable fee structure made it possible for me to stay in the game.

  • Using Patriot Pay has given me much more free time to run other aspects of my business.
  • The ease of running reports is very useful at the end of the year so that my accountant can easily look at my payroll costs, including taxes paid.

Patriot PAY is a Gem

  • Patriot PAY has increased my bottom line and helped organize payroll, especially for those small businesses that only have a couple employees.
  • I have also been able to offer clients an affordable, user-friendly option to process their own payroll if they prefer not to outsource. Their full-service payroll option is an easy recommendation.
  • The cost difference between Patriot PAY and what I would pay for another service is almost 50%. That's more money that is able to stay in my business.

  • Using Patriot streamlined and simplified payroll and tax filing for our small office. This freed up my time to manage other administrative tasks and to complete more casework. The time I had to perform additional casework more than paid for the modest monthly charge for the service.
  • End of the year taxes were simplified, as Patriot took care of quarterly employer tax payments and filings and also generated quarterly reports.
