This Business Tool Can Make Small Business Finances Easy


Small businesses pay billions of dollars a year to the IRS because of payroll errors. And 40% of business owners say bookkeeping and taxes are their least favorite part of the job.

But it doesn’t have to be like that.

We take you through a business tool to make payroll problems a thing of the past.

Pay Stubs

Pay stubs are legal documents so it’s important to get them right. Depending on the state you’re in a pay stub may have specific requirements for what it shows, so be sure to check before creating one.

A pay stub is also a really useful finance tool for both yourself and your employee. Keeping accurate records will help resolve any disputes and keep things simple when it’s time to do your taxes.
