I was very happy using Payroll Setup. The process of entering my employee's information was easy and user friendly. I also really love how there are red, yellow, and green boxes on the main page, which is very helpful when determining what needs to be completed. I would recommend this site to anyone who is setting up payroll for their business. Great job!
