Editors' Review

Small and medium-size businesses do all kinds of different things, but one thing they have in common is they're in business. Something else they have in common is payrolls. Meeting them, managing them, recording them -- no wonder so many business owners and accountants always seem worried! It's a lot of responsibility. Payroll Mate 2013 from Real Business Solutions can help. It handles just about every part of the payroll process except providing the actual pay (sorry -- that one's still yours!) for a reasonable price. It can prepare payrolls, calculate taxes and withholding, print paychecks, create and export reports and data to a variety of databases and document types, and process forms, including W-2s and federal forms (and even some state forms, too). Payroll Mate is free to try for 30 days -- plenty of time to see if it's what your business needs. The latest release is fully compatible with Windows 8.

As with many proprietary business tools, Payroll Mate's user interface offers its own take on the basic Explorer-style layout, with multipurpose sidebars and toolbars as well as menu bars that borrow touches from Web browsers. Payroll Mate opened with the Checks form displayed and pre-filled with sample data for a fictitious employee, "George B. Orange." Other buttons configure and manage data for Employees, Forms, Reports, Company, and Vendor Center, but we could add custom buttons easily, too. In fact, most of Payroll Mate can be customized to suit your business. We probably should have mentioned this earlier, but Payroll Mate has plenty to offer on its Help menu, too, including a Help Manual with lots of specific information (like Clergy Payroll, for instance) as well as an entire submenu of Helpful Resources such as a Quick Start Guide and instructions for using W-2s and other forms.

Overall, we were impressed with Payroll Mate 2013's ability to simplify a lot of complex processes. For example, toolbar buttons labeled Print Selected Check and Print Multiple Checks leave little room for guessing.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Payroll Mate 2013 9.0.10.

"some features require extra cost add-ons"

December 13, 2013  |  By dhoffer100

 |  Version: Payroll Mate 2013 9.0.29

Pros

Easy to set up company, employee and paroll data.

Cons

The $99 price does not include the ability to set up direct deposit of payroll checks, print state forms or W-2 Forms on plain paper.

Summary

With the add-ons that you may need, it is a capable program for small businesses, but don't be fooled by the $99 price.

"Worthless !!"

January 19, 2010  |  By JKL96

 |  Version: Payroll Mate 2009 5.0.85

Pros

Basic Tax Summary
That's It

Cons

Basic Summary...Very overpriced for what (little) it does.
I have used Quicken payroll for years...great program and great value
But now it has become too expensive.
CNET What were you thinking One star is tooo much

Summary

Worthless piece of junk.
I paid extra for California forms...when opened...they said they don't support California forms...also many of the information boxes have sections missing and the help information is also of little value.

I have used C-Net Reviews many times...with excellent results...but -
They should stick to hardware reviews..This piece of crap is not worthy of one star and it receives five stars...I'm much more upset with the way off the mark C-Net review than I am about way overpaying for a worthless overpriced product.

"bought it today"

December 15, 2009  |  By SahanMarandi

 |  Version: Payroll Mate 2009 5.0.85

Pros

I used this software as a replacement for quickpayroll which got discontinued..I can't say payroll mate had everything I needed, but I was able to customize it to fit my requirements.was able to create my own tax and deduction types which is great.

Cons

export to quicken is not available in the 2009 version, it's available in the 2010 one. BTW I had to go to payroll mate website to download a demo for 2010, not sure when this will be available on download.com.

Summary

would recommend especially if you are a quickpayroll user and looking for a replacement

"Affordable"

October 31, 2009  |  By carlazimin

 |  Version: Payroll Mate 2009 5.0.85

Pros

I use MSOA (Microsoft Accounting) and I had to find a payroll software last month after payroll for office accounting from ADP got discontinued. For $99, Payroll Mate was perfect for our small company.

Cons

I would like to see the ability to interface with EFTPS added to the software.

"Very, very friendly and easy to use.."

July 23, 2009  |  By RitaRam22

 |  Version: Payroll Mate 2009 5.0.85

Pros

Easy and affordable.I was able to setup my company, add my employees and print checks in less than an hour. I paid $99 and it covers my whole year.

Cons

I wish the software had employee time tracking built in. The tech support guy said they will consider it.

Summary

If you are just like me and don't want to be ripped off by payroll service companies, then use this software.
