Editors' review

Without a decent program to manage it, doing payroll can be a serious pain. Unfortunately, Payroll 5 could not by any stretch be called a "decent program." Although there's nothing functionally wrong with it, it has some serious deficiencies when it comes to basic features.

We knew we were in trouble when we first saw the program's logo, which consists of a dopey-looking cartoon guy with a goatee. This graphic is more befitting of an avatar generator aimed at tweens than a professional payroll application, and every time we look at it we're a little more perplexed. The program's interface consists of a single screen where you can add new employees, set up pay rates and deductions, and enter vacation or sick leave. Actually using the program to create a timesheet--or payslip, as the program calls it--is fairly easy; we entered the necessary information for our imaginary employee and viewed the payslip by clicking Print. Everything took a bit of trial and error since there's no Help file, but it wasn't too difficult to figure out. When we viewed the payslip, however, we were puzzled to find that the program publisher's name and contact information were displayed prominently across the top, as though the payslip were that of any employee of Kandawognon Business Solutions, the creator of Payroll 5. There didn't seem to be any way to change this, and that's a deal breaker for us; who wants to create timesheets with the name of someone else's company across the top? With some revisions Payroll 5 would be a decent program for simple payroll needs, but we can't recommend it highly in its current form.

Payroll 5 comes as a ZIP file and installs and uninstalls without issues.
