Editors' review

Basic Payroll 2009 provides a simple tool that lets even the most novice user create paychecks for employees. Its easy three-step process for handling payroll proved a pleasure to use. For small business owners, it's a real time saver.

The program's interface impressed us, mainly because the entire process is housed within an easy-to-use Wizard. With a few pieces of information, we were able to intuitively navigate through the setup process. Basic Payroll initially allows you to enter up to 30 employees and their personal information, including their withholdings. After you enter each employee's hourly pay rate and the number of hours they worked, Basic Payroll automatically calculates each person's pay and generates a check for printing. We liked this feature because it eliminates the possibility of mathematical error. The program's best feature was a small calculator that you use to determine a salaried employee's pay. The final step in the process is simply viewing and printing the paycheck that you created from the previous information. The results were impressive. Basic Payroll consistently wowed us with its ability to make something as complex as a payroll easy enough for the novice to master.

Basic Payroll 2009 is a free program that downloads as a compressed file. We highly recommend this program for its ability to make the payroll process as simple as possible.

    "Federal Tax does not use correct basis."

    March 27, 2012   |   By weeblesue

    Version: Basics Payroll 2012 5.0

    Pros

    Snazzy interface, straightforward to understand.

    Cons

    CALCULATION IS INCORRECT for Federal Tax.

    Summary

    Federal taxes are based on the ADJUSTED GROSS income, and this program does not calculate this properly. Enter values for someone's pay, say $3000 biweekly and see what tax it calculates. Then, add a "non-taxable" pre-tax deduction of, say, 10% for a 401K contribution. This is supposed to reduce the Adjusted Gross, so less taxes are taken out. However, the calculation shows exactly the same amount of taxes to be taken out no matter if this person contributes to a 401K or not.

    Yes, the Social Security and Medicare taxes ignore 401K contributions for the calculated amount, but Federal Tax does not.

    No matter what I did, I could not get the values of this program to match up with my employer's pay statement to me. It was close on the SS and Medicare, but not even remotely close on Federal.

    USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION.

    "Great! Great! Payroll Software"

    October 05, 2006   |   By jgarcia96

    Version: Basics Payroll 1

    Pros

    Very Basic. Friendly User. This program is design for a small business. At times I have more than 30 employees and can still use the program. Highly recommend. Tech support is great by e-mail and by phone.

    Cons

    NONE. Try BASIC PAYROLL and is you don't like. Go to sbfac.com and try PAYROLL SB.
