"Square payroll features"

What do you like best?

What I like the best about square payroll is that it automatically files taxes which includes incorporating new hire reports, W-2 forms and federal and state payroll taxes. It gives updates to the payee so they know that their money is on the way. Key features include integrated timecards, employee benefits offerings and direct deposits. Square is easy to use and major elements of payroll administration is supported, from setup to pay runs to taxes to reportSquare.

What do you dislike?

No free trial, I absolutely dislike the lack of that feature. Also there are limited payroll item types and it is only available in 32 states. I feel like its awkward to navigate. It also lacks pre-formatted reports and mobile applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It does not have all the same features that other payroll companies do. It is easy to use though so if you have small payroll it is helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to pay independent contractors and I was able to solve that. The benefits I realized is that I did not have to pay for a monthly subscription.

What do you like best?

It is an easy-to-use platform for people who are just starting to use it.

It has a low cost.

1099s.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes downloading the export can be a bit complicated.

But I think he has no more negative things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a solution with a low cost and that is also very easy to use, that is why it is difficult to overcome. For small and medium companies it is ideal.

You have a direct debit deposit from your account that is connected to the employee.

Simple management but that are inclusive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can manage my own payroll and so I can know with more certainty how everything is working.

We configure retail payment platforms and e-commerce platforms, Square's payroll is essential to any package offered by Square that has allowed the implementation of solutions for small businesses in a fast way.

"Great System!"

What do you like best?

It's a well-known company used in stores and companies nationwide, unlike some payroll services that sounds sketchy. Also, by using Square POS system, our employees timecards will automatically sync with the Square Payroll app. That is the biggest benefit I believe by using it. Everything works together to be efficient and saves time.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was a little bit cheaper to use. The base rate isn't bad, but they get you with the per/employee fee of $5. That's the only reason I rated this software a 9.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It integrates with Square POS systems to pay both contractors and employees. One benefit for our company is that Square files federal and state taxes the company owes for full-time W-2 employee salaries at no added cost! I know our company is in good hands being compliant in everything ranging from New-hire reports sick leave & paid time off tracking, workers comp, new hire-reports and more that Square deals with and we don't have to. The online account allows employees to access their direct deposit bank account, pay stubs, and update/change their tax withholdings.

"Best. Easiest. Cheapest."

What do you like best?

I loved the fact that all taxes and forms were paid and submitted automatically after setup. I never had to worry about forgetting to file or pay anything as it was all done for me.

What do you dislike?

I never found anything I didn't like. Only stopped using cause I no longer needed to do payroll.
