What is Patriot Payroll?

Patriot Software is a budget-friendly payroll solution offered in two products, Basic Payroll and Full Service. The basic package allows you to use the web-based app, while the full package includes payroll services on top of using the app, such as managing collections, deposits and taxes on your behalf. Small companies can start with the basic plan at $10 per month (base price) + $4 per employee.

With the Basic payroll, small businesses use the software for running payroll with a simple 3-step process but will need to handle their own payroll tax deposits and payroll tax filings. The software offers detailed payroll reports and tax liabilities reports.  The Full Service Payroll starts at $30/month (base price) + $4 per employee. The Full-Service Payroll is recommended for busy business owners who do not have the time or man-power for handling payroll tax deposits and payroll tax filings. All end of the year payroll tax filings is included with the Full Service Payroll.

Basic Payroll features direct deposit and checks with unlimited 24/7 payrolls. With its scalable pricing model of a base price plus cost-per-employee setup, you get to process wages whether you have one or more employees (term apply). This gives small businesses a lot of flexibility and predictability in terms of payroll costs. Likewise, the software adapts to different pay schedules and hosts printable W-2 templates. It also has a free employee portal, where your staff can view the details of their paycheck, and automatic tax updates to keep your wage calculations accurate.
