Best Payroll for Hourly Teams

Homebase was recognized as the best payroll software for small businesses with hourly workers in 2022.

You don’t need to do math to do payroll.

Stop calculating breaks and overtime and manually entering hours and wages.

  • We remind your team to clock in and out and add their breaks, so you aren’t chasing down time cards everyday.
  • Automatically track hours, breaks, overtime, and PTO — and calculate hours and wages.
  • No data entry required: with just a few clicks timesheets turn into paychecks.
  • Or take payroll off your plate completely. With autopayroll, we set it, and you forget it.

The compliance chaos ends here.

Don’t wonder if you’re getting payroll right. Homebase helps you stay accurate and compliant with every payroll run:

  • Automatically calculate hours, breaks, overtime, wages, and taxes based on your city, state, and federal labor laws.
  • Set up paid time off policies and track balances and accruals right in Homebase.
  • Store your time card and payroll records to comply with FLSA record-keeping rules.

I've run payroll from literally sitting on a horse, moving cattle, and submitted my payroll.

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 creates printable checks for you to send out to your team. You can alternatively have Homebase directly deposit funds into their bank accounts, marking yet another item off your to-do list, whether you’re running payroll for a restaurant or for any other business.

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.

Control the chaos of hourly work.
