EZ PayChek’s Payroll Service

How does it work?

It’s simple. Enter your payroll information once at our secure website. Tax and other deductions are calculated and deposits are automatically made for you. After setting up your account, completing each payroll takes no more than a few clicks. Employees are paid by direct deposit and receive email notifications with instructions to a password protected website to view their pay stubs. They also have the option of receiving a printed check.

Do I have to give up control of my payroll?

Absolutely not. In fact, you retain “hands-on” control of the major aspects of distributing and processing payroll, just without the hassles of executing every little detail. With EZ PayChek you no longer have to depend on courier services, third-party data handlers or employees’ whereabouts on payday.

Some of my employees have direct deposit but others prefer a paycheck every pay period. Can you handle both?

Yes. You have the option of offering your employees a “paperless” pay stub via email and our secure web site. Or if they prefer, you can print out a check and stub. We offer flexibility to both you and your employees.

Can the pay calendar be adjusted?

Yes. You can move the payday for a particular payroll or change your entire payroll calendar. To adjust your pay calendar, contact Customer Service by phone at 952.314.3884, by email at help@ezpaychek.com, or by completing our support-request form.

What documentation is needed to process my payroll?

Federal regulations require that EZ PayChek receives complete and signed documentation before we can begin processing payroll. We will need the following: 1) Federal and State Electronic Services Enrollment Forms; 2) State Power of Attorney. Additionally, we request that you provide the following information : 1) copies of current quarterly and annual returns; 2) copies of federal and state registrations; 3) SUI Rate Change Notice; and 4) employee setup information. These documents will help facilitate future tax filings and payments. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Service by phone at 952.314.3884, by email at help@ezpaychek.com, or by completing our support-request form.

Can I submit employee pay adjustments that are separate from their salary?

Yes. Within our employee payroll data screen you may make adjustments to pay whether they are additional pay adjustments or one-time deductions. If you need further assistance, please contact Customer Service by phone at 952.314.3884, by email at help@ezpaychek.com, or by completing our support-request form.

Will EZ PayChek help me track and set accrued vacation, sick and /or personal days?

Yes. Within the Employee Information screen, you can adjust the rate at which each employee earns paid time off such as vacation, sick and personal days. You also have the ability to set a maximum number of accrued days per employee.

Can we process a separate pay run in addition to the scheduled pay cycle?

Yes. This feature is available in the Payroll Entry screen.

Can paychecks be reprinted if necessary? Will that affect the check number sequence?

Yes. If your printer jams when printing a paycheck, or if the paycheck becomes smudged or illegible during printing you may reprint the check. Our system prompts you to enter the check number after the printing is complete. Therefore, your check number sequence will not be affected.

Can I run payroll for employees throughout the United States?

EZ PayChek processes payroll for employees located throughout the U.S. — in all 50 states.

What payroll reports are available?
