“We understand the challenges of running a small business, and our goal is to make payroll simple,”
Canton, Ohio (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
Patriot Software, Inc., provider of online payroll , is now available to the 499,000 small businesses in Missouri.
President Mike Kappel explains, “Each state has its own unique requirements for payroll and taxes. That means Patriot must carefully check for accuracy, and Missouri is the 39th state to pass our rigorous testing.
“Missouri is known for its pro-business environmen t, and Patriot’s simple, reliable software offers one more advantage for small businesses in Missouri.”
The Time Is Right
The data coming out of Missouri is optimistic. The Small Business Administration (SBA) reports that the key to Missouri’s prosperity is the state’s small businesses. In fact, while larger employers netted a decrease in employees, businesses with between one and four employees added thousands of new jobs.
However, while Missouri is known for having low taxes for businesses (6th lowest), the government’s friendliness was rated below average because of its tax code.
Doug Simmons, accounting specialist, spells it out. “Although the payroll tax rates for Missouri are low, the computations and rules are complex. With our Full Service Payroll, small business owners can let Patriot do the heavy lifting and handle payroll tax filings and deposits. That gives employers more time to focus on their businesses.”
Flexible pricing enables other employers to choose the Basic Payroll option. With Basic Payroll, Patriot calculates the payroll taxes, and the employer handles the tax deposits and filings on their own.
For three years, Missouri has been one of the top 10 states with the fastest growth in tech jobs. Patriot’s secure online system is a good match for Missouri’s advances in technology.
Kappel states, “Our online system allows busy owners to run payroll in 3 easy steps from any device with an Internet connection, 24/7.
“Also, employers know that all software and tax table updates are done automatically with Patriot’s online payroll software.”
Even the smallest of small businesses want a quick and easy way to keep their payroll records. Wendy Smith, Patriot customer support manager, agrees, “Yes, owners love the simple, reliable payroll software … and they especially appreciate that if they need help, our customer support is based in the USA and is free!”
Patriot’s customer support will even help small business owners set up their online payroll for free. “We understand the challenges of running a small business, and our goal is to make payroll simple,” Smith adds.
Patriot offers additional options to meet the diverse needs of small business owners. For example, employers can take advantage of free direct deposit; or choose to print or hand-write checks.
A time-saving option is the employee portal which allows employees to check payroll details, print a paystub, or make changes to their payroll withholding -- so the employer doesn’t have to handle those administrative tasks.
Employers can save money, too. In addition to being affordable, there are no long-term commitments or hidden fees with Patriot Software.
“In fact, the first month is free,” adds Kappel. “Missouri is the Show-Me State, and Patriot is ready to show Missourians how our online payroll can help small businesses.”
Patriot Software, Inc., is based in Canton, Ohio, and offers simple, affordable, online software solutions for the smallest of small businesses.
