Payroll Software – FAQs

February 19, 2019


I am no payroll expert! Will I be able to do this?

Our payroll software is designed for business owners, not payroll experts. We’ve designed the screens to be straightforward and user-friendly, guiding you through each step of the payroll process.

I only have one employee. Why do I need payroll software?

Even if you just have one employee, payroll can be a complicated, time-consuming process for small business owners. Our payroll software can simplify your payroll management so that you can focus on your business.

What if I don’t run payroll on a given month?

On the months you don’t run payroll, you will only be charged the base price for the payroll.

What size organizations can use your software?

The software is designed for small or medium-sized businesses with 100 or fewer employees.

What types of organizations use the payroll software?

From service providers to manufacturing shops to nonprofits, our payroll software was designed to fit the payroll management needs of most types of companies.

Does your payroll software handle reported tips?

Yes. You can update your employee’s reported tips in payroll, withhold appropriate taxes, and properly report it on their W2 form.

How can I print paychecks in your software?

You can use completely blank check stock with a MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) printer cartridge to print payroll checks in Patriot Software. You must use one check per 8 ½ x 11 page to use blank check stock. Alternatively, you can use pre-printed paychecks in Patriot Software as well.

In which states can I use your payroll software for my payroll?

Patriot Software is now available in all 50 states!  Our software is configured to handle all state-specific and local taxes that apply to your state.

I have locations outside the USA. Can I use your payroll software?

No, our software is not designed to run payroll for employees outside the USA. One of our main goals is to help American businesses by providing streamlined, economic payroll management solutions. As such, our software is only available to companies with employees working in the USA.

Will Patriot Software share my information with any outside parties?

Patriot Software will not share your information with any outside party without your prior permission.

Once I’m a client, how do I cancel your service if I need/want to?

Logging into your account and cancelling on the Add/Cancel software section allow you to turn off service. And, if you’re using our Full Payroll Service, we’ll refund any non-deposited payroll tax liabilities to you.
