Are you ready to get started with small business payroll?

You don't need to be a tech wizard to start using Full Service Payroll.

After you sign up, the software will prompt you to enter your information step-by-step in our simple onboarding process.


Let's get you up and running. We recommend gathering these items before you begin:

  • Your company legal name, DBA (if applicable) and company address
  • All of your tax ID numbers, including: your federal employer identification number (EIN), your state tax withholding ID number and your local tax ID numbers (if applicable)
  • Your state unemployment (SUTA) account number and SUTA rate for your company*
  • All employee information**, including: names, addresses, social security numbers, tax filing status and details on current deductions & contributions
  • The pay rate and pay frequency (weekly, biweekly, etc.) for all employees
  • All payroll registers for the current year, by pay date
  • All employer taxes for the current year, by pay date
  • Copies of all tax filings for current year (i.e. 941, state & local tax returns, SUTA)

*Note: Your state unemployment agency may send your SUTA rate determination in a separate letter. This rate is based on your industry and your company’s individual claim history for unemployment.

**Tip: You can find all of this on the W-4 form filled out by your employees.
