One of the things that all companies with employees has to do is pay those employees. Another thing they have to do is keep records of those payments. Of course you don't just need to record one figure, there are deductions that come out of everyone's pay. Things like taxes, union dues, 401ks.

To start I think you already know that there is lot of software out there that has been around a week or two before you get your hands on it. Software that is buggy, not too well thought out and with questionable features that may or may not work.

Enter the PayWindow Payroll System! PayWindow Payroll System has been around since 1983 and has many thousands of users. The program can interface with Quicken too.

How hard is it use? There is a Startup Tutorial at that took 4 minutes and gave me the general in and outs of the program. Then I did the How to Create a New Company tutorial it took less than 2 minures. I hope that you are getting the picture, PayWindow Payroll System can be easily learned by anyone.

One of the problems with off the shelf accounting programs is their lack of flexibility. They are setup so that somehow or another you can never quiet get them setup for your needs. Not so with PayWindow Payroll System any company will find that they can set it up exactly the way they need it.

It comes with Federal and State tax tables included and you can actually edit them yourself.

The reports are unbelievable! Portrait and landscape employee reports, employer's totals report, cost accounting reports, check printing, check register, wage reports for month, quarter and year to date, tax liability report and it actually prints a real 941 form report, print w2 forms and 1099-misc forms for non-employee workers, and payroll history reports.
