Easy and Fast Payroll Services in Hawaii

With us as your payroll service, hiring employees and setting up payroll is neither expensive or difficult. As a business owner, this is something that you should not have to worry too much about it.

We manage and guide you through the process and makes sure you stay compliant.

We utilize the latest in modern payroll software, meaning streamlined payment of your employees, tax return filings, and deposits of withholding and other taxes.

Your employees get modern features such as an automatic direct deposit on payday and online access to their pay information. We also manage different pay rates, bonuses, and overtime for your employees. At the end of the year we send each of your employees their Form W2 and complete the additional necessary tax returns that need to be filed with the IRS.

Everything is E-filed – we take care of all of it and let you know that it is done.

Payroll Compliance

We do not recommend that run your own payroll with an online service.

Penalties for not filing your payroll tax returns, filing them incorrectly, or not depositing taxes on time are somewhat large. This is one area where it’s not good to be late, and it’s not worth the extra expense.

Plus, if a mistake is made somewhere, an unrelenting flow of IRS and state letters show up in the mail. It’s difficult to deal with these letters, and they create frustrating time costs and expensive representation costs.

The Cost of a Good Payroll Service

“Back in the day” when everything was computed and delivered by hand, payroll tax services would cost you an arm and a leg. Even if you only have a couple of employees. Over the years it seems like these prices never went down as the automation involved increased – and therefore we think most payroll services charge too much.

We offer reasonably priced, full service payroll, with caring customer service. If you are just starting out with hiring employees it is likely that you do not have too much extra money hanging around.

We can also bundle together all of your accounting and tax needs at all levels instead of having someone “nickel and dime” you for every little thing that you need.
