ZenPayroll Now Available For Illinois

As of last week, ZenPayroll is now available for businesses in the state of Illinois.  This means that ZenPayroll can take of all of your state and federal payroll tax filings and will automate the payroll tax payments to the government, which will save you a considerable amount of time and compliance costs.

ZenPayroll is delightful, modern payroll. Their comprehensive payroll service enables businesses to get set up and run payroll in minutes, from any web enabled device. All government payroll taxes, reporting, and compliance are taken care of automatically and paperlessly. They’ve processed tens of millions of dollars in payroll and their customers span a wide variety of businesses, from flower shops to technology start-ups.

Here are some of the reasons that we like ZenPayroll:

  • It is a comprehensive payroll service that is completely cloud based and paperless.  It packs all of the firepower of the payroll big boys like ADP and Paychex, but is intuitive and easy to use.
  • ZenPayroll includes tools to take care of your HR needs, like vacation and sick time tracking, new employee reporting to state governments,  and integrates with a numbers of HR programs.
  • ZenPayroll fully integrates with a number of accounting software packages, including Xero!  This allows for seamless reporting and automatic posting of payroll entries into your accounting software.
  • Employees and Independent Contractors have easy access to their paystubs and annual payroll information.  Changes to withholding and employee status are a breeze.
  • W-2′s and 1099′s are automatically generated at the end of the year and filed with the governments.

We believe that payroll should not be a complicated and painful process and that is why we like and enjoy ZenPayroll so much!
