Having served as a CPA in Atlanta for now 34 years, I remain committed now more than ever that a CPA firm, who has your best interests at heart, will not perform payroll services. Though a CPA firm is eminently qualified to handle and perform payroll tasks and all of their reporting issues, a CPA firm by definition will either charge you CPA rates for predominantly clerical services or they will package or bundle the services putting their name on a payroll company’s work adding there mark up for doing so. Desiring first to serve is a motto we all should aspire to. If where you live is at all similar to the Atlanta marketplace, there are many fine payroll companies, many of them national companies, who are more than capable of providing excellent service at a fair price.

  • Great post, John. It is quite important for business-newbies to decide between using a payroll software and handling it all manually by themselves. Usually they tend to pick the latter, until they decide they can do better things with their time, and switch to the latter.
