How to run payroll

Small business payroll often results in a large headache as managers and owners learn how to do payroll manually. There are a lot of factors on the federal and state level you need to remember to prepare payroll for both hourly payroll and salaried employees every pay period.

However, with the Homebase payroll app, your payroll calculations are automated. This means that instead of pulling out your “payroll for dummies” pamphlet and poring over hours worked, social security numbers, and voluntary deductions, you can ditch the data entry since your online payroll information is covered by Homebase. 

You don’t even need a time card calculator—Homebase converts your wages, hours, and minutes into your payroll summary report. Then Homebase calculates those wages and sends out the employee paychecks or directly deposits the funds into their bank accounts as part of their annual salary or gross pay, marking yet another item off your to-do list, whether you’re running restaurant payroll or payroll for another industry. 

What is a good payroll example?

Your full-service payroll provider should save you time and reduce the risk of errors. Homebase makes that happen by keeping your data all in one place. Hours worked are instantly calculated, breaks and overtime are tracked, and it’s all synced to payroll so mistakes are easily avoided. 

You don’t need to hang a payroll process flowchart in your office to run payroll successfully and avoid payroll fraud. Homebase lets you do it in a few clicks. Remember the days when you had to worry about Medicare tax, Social Security tax, health insurance, federal income tax, and other deductions? Those days are gone.
