Square Payroll Is Now Available to 82% of U.S. Businesses

Square Payroll

Today we’re introducing Square Payroll to sellers in four states: Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Oregon. Now businesses in 32 states — around 82 percent of the U.S. employer market — have access to Square Payroll.

Our sellers across the country are now paying out more than $100 million a year in payroll for their employees. Because traditional payroll solutions don’t cater to a small business’s needs, half of those sellers did not have a previous payroll provider. Square Payroll, on the other hand, was built with small businesses in mind.

From importing timecards directly from your POS to allowing employees to set up direct deposit, Square Payroll aims to make payroll as efficient and easy as possible. That also extends to compliance: Square Payroll generates W-2s and 1099s, files your state and federal taxes, and tracks sick leave and paid time off. You can even turn on automatic payroll, so you don’t have to remember to run payroll at the end of each period — Square Payroll does it for you.

“I used to have to email all my employees to gather information, add up hours by hand, write everything out … and I don’t need to anymore now that my payroll system connects to my time-tracking system,” said Joshua Silver, owner of Nodo Downtown, a restaurant in Iowa City. “I guarantee everyone in their right mind should switch. It’s been so much more efficient to run payroll.”

He added, “We’ve been able to save on labor costs because the POS system lets employees clock in and out down to the exact minute and that gets sent over to payroll and wages are calculated with no additional work on our end.”

Square Payroll is available no matter which type of workers you employ — whether it’s hourly employees, salaried employees, or independent contractors. And pricing is simple: if you have employees, it’s $25 a month, plus $5 per employee paid that month; for independent contractors, it’s just $5 per contractor (no subscription fee).

Square Payroll is open to everyone, even if you don’t use Square for the rest of your business.
