Why Preferred Pay?

Reduce Costs. Many business owners end up paying less to partner with us for their payroll solutions when compared to employing even a part-time bookkeeper. Also, you avoid payroll knowledge walking out the door when your bookkeeper gets a new job. Our pricing policy is transparent – no hidden or add-on fees.

Free Up Your Time. Free up your time to pursue more important value-added and revenue-generating business activities. With more off your plate, you’ll have extra time to spend giving your business the everyday attention it needs to grow.

Peace of Mind. Most business owners don’t have time to keep up with constantly changing regulations, withholding rates, and government forms. We help you stay in compliance and avoid costly penalties due to mistakes and late filings.

Better Service. Work with local people and dedicated team members you know by name. We’re closer than a phone call away – we’re just down the street! Benefit from our personal attention and flexibility you won’t get from national payroll companies.
