Comments: It has made the end of the year a delight. Before it was very hard but with this software it is a breeze

Pros: It is put together so that it is easy to use and if you need any help they are just a phone call away

Cons: It doesn't keep ALL years active so that you can look back in them. It only leaves two.

Comments: Payroll is easy to do and easy setup

Pros: It is easy to set up clients and employee information. I like they switched the direct deposit processing from the clients to 3 days instead of 5 days.

Cons: How they switched the processing for e-filing taxes for clients. Some clients keep coming back rejected and the customer service agent never has the correct answer or not willing to help resolve the issue.

We have had a very good experience with AccountantsWorld and the Payroll Relief platform.

Pros: Payroll Relief is a payroll service bureau platform for processing payroll, paying taxes, and electronically filing tax forms. Many service bureau payroll systems allow you to process payroll but electronic payments and form filings have to be done outside of the system. The system is modern and flexible. We can customize our clients' accounts to their exact specifications which allows us to meet their needs more effectively.

Cons: I would like to see Payroll Relief's integration with the timekeeping and 401k services that we offer to our clients expanded upon. AccountantsWorld has developed a new API so I'm confident that new time saving features will be available to us soon.

A fully automated simple to use system that makes you look like a large payroll provider

Comments: The benefit of being able to offer payroll directly to my clients which not only creates a new profit center, but also allows me to post directly into the accounting software.

Pros: A fully automated system that I can run remotely from my iPad if needed. Once payroll is finalized, nothing more to do. Direct deposits generated, tax payments scheduled, third party check/ACH payments done, reports emails to client, and complete quarterly & annual form filing.....all done for me. 24/7 access from wherever you have an internet connection. Client and employee email and text notifications

Cons: The need for a cross year detailed earnings report. The inability to work with some smaller local banks

Very Good

Comments: The benefits allow the small accounting and payroll firm to compete with ADP and the larger firms. We can offer similar service at a reasonable cost.

Pros: The program is efficient and easy to use. The program is powerful and allows our company to offer a broader base of service than other programs available to small accounting and payroll firms.

Cons: The cost of the program cuts into our profits and limits us to a small extent. The lead time on direct deposits are very tight. For a Friday payroll, the payroll must be processed by 8 pm on Tuesday. It would be nice to have until 8 pm on Wednesday.
