I know this is an old post. However, I use http://payroll.intuit.com/
and within minutes each week, I do Payroll myself.

It's pretty easy to setup and there is no way you can screw up deductions.
The software calculates deductions for your state, within one click of the mouse. You are also notified when you have to pay taxes. And paying taxes is a click of the mouse as well.

With Intuit, they also have a workers comp agency that works with them as a unit. I am on the pay as you go program. So in short, workers comp is deducted from my bank account weekly, based on what my payroll is. And there is no lump sum payment required in advance to get it started.

My payroll bank account is connected to intuit by my routing # and account # and the system works like clockwork. You have the choice of direct deposit or checks. I like checks because I can print them at anytime, from my office using blank check stock.

Like CDpainting said, he uses an accountant so he can focus on running his business. That's was someone told me who wanted to do my payroll, it's a line of BS. Knowing what I know now, I would not let anyone do my payroll. Once set up, it takes only 5 minute to do, per pay period, with 2 employees. I pay only $41 per month for my online account.

And what I like most of all, I am in full controlling of payroll and not dependent on a 3rd party. I print my own payroll checks here and you can't beat that!

As a former bookkeeper /business manager , accounting is not really that hard once you accept the fact that it is a double entry system. The last independent accounting programm I remember using is ACC PAC, the subscription thing is something new to me as well. Even with experience I am consulting with a CPA to start the books, that is the most difficult part.

Payroll is certainly part of it, but there is so much more info to get from a package
Depreciation on equpment
Calculation of base overhead
Splitting of revenue streams and the % each stream contrbutes to your total revenue.

Accounting is like tools/ equipment ( this is no place to cut corners) an intial sit down with either a CPA or at the very least a bookkeeper can help you keep more of your hard earned revenue.

If you only have a few employees, using Quickbooks Enhanced Payroll or Full Service Payroll is a good option. If you have more than a few employees or you want to offer 401(k) and health insurance, Paychex (http://www.paychex.com/) is a legitimate option. Paychex offers a wider array of services when compared to Quickbooks Payroll.

I use Quickbooks Online for simple invoicing for customers and use an accountant for all my payroll b/c I don't want to deal with all the details etc. It's totally worth it!!
