Montana employers have an affordable new option for small business payroll: Patriot PAY, now approved for service in the state.
Designed exclusively for American small business owners with up to 50 employers, Patriot PAY is now available in 24 states, including the neighboring states of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Idaho.
Patriot PAY is Software as a Service (SaaS), which uses the latest technology to provide employers online access to payroll tasks. Patriot PAY is available to Montana employers virtually everywhere they have Internet access, whether they’re working in Billings, Helena, or Eureka -- (or if they ran off to Canada for a quick fishing trip and forgot to run payroll).
Before approving a state for payroll services, Patriot’s staff conducts comprehensive tests of all applicable payroll taxes and other rules for the state. Montana employers can count on Patriot PAY to stay current on all relevant payroll taxes, including federal, state, and local taxes. Employers don’t need to worry about updating the latest tax tables; all updates are automatic, and there’s nothing to download.
Flexible and Easy to Use
Here’s how it works. Once employers set up their company in Patriot PAY, they can log into the secure website from any computer, enter employee info for the pay period, and finish their payroll within minutes. Employers can access a variety of reports and modify their settings anytime.
Employers can process unlimited payroll any way and anytime they choose -- by handwritten or printed checks, pay cards, direct deposit, or online bill pay. With MY Patriot, the optional employee self-serve (ESS) website, employers can give employees access to their own payroll information. Employees can log into the secure website to view their paycheck details and manage their banking information.
Patriot PAY is designed to be flexible and easy for any business owner to use, regardless of their computer or payroll experience. Help is built right in, with training tips, answers to the most common payroll questions, and access to customer service.
Patriot Software also offers an optional payroll tax filing and depositing service for Patriot customers. With TaxBeGone, employers can stop worrying about remembering payroll tax deposits or filing deadlines. TaxBeGone will handle all applicable local, state, and federal payroll taxes for customers.
Priced to Give Small Business an Advantage
Patriot PAY is a great option for business owners looking to save money on overhead costs, according to Wendy Smith, Payroll Manager for Patriot Software.
“Patriot PAY presents a great value for employers,” Smith said. “There’s no reason why they should pay more than they need to for payroll software. Patriot Software cares about strengthening American small businesses, and we price our products to give them an advantage.”
Prices for monthly access to Patriot PAY start at just $10 and are scaled to the number of employees in the business. Patriot offers a free 48-hour test drive and a no-obligation free trial period, in which customers can enter real data, run payroll for their employees, and compare their payroll calculations with their current payroll provider. Additionally, there are no long-term contracts, and business owners can cancel anytime with no hassles.
