Square Payroll Is Now Available to 96% of U.S. Businesses

Square Payroll

Today we’re introducing Square Payroll to sellers in six states: Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Now businesses in 44 states — around 96 percent of the U.S. employer market — have access to Square Payroll.

Our sellers across the country have paid out more than $790 million in payroll for their employees in the past year. 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.

“Switching to Square Payroll was quick and seamless,” said Raymond Osbrey, owner of Jitters Cafe in Rhode Island.

“I can now run payroll from anywhere and with text or email reminders I won’t forget. My employees have access to all their payroll information through the employee portal. Square Payroll even tracks sick leave accrual and use. When you add in timecards [from Square Employee Management], running payroll is only a few clicks from complete. Twenty-one years of timecard math is a thing of the past!”

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 $29 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.
