CheckMark Payroll is an on-premise payroll solution for do-it-yourself payrolls, small businesses, accountants, and professional payroll services. It imports hours from a time clock or spreadsheet, tracks accrued sick and vacation time, emails PDF paystubs and prints forms like 941, 940, 943, and 944.

CheckMark Payroll helps users run payroll, print checks and pay employer taxes in a matter of minutes. Users can customize income and deductions and pay by direct deposit or print checks straight out of the program. Users can also e-file W-2s, and W-3s to SSA and most states. It handles tax-sheltered deductions like 401 (k) and holds federal and state withholding tables. The solution creates ACH-formatted files for direct deposit via a bank or cloud-based deposit service for all employer and employee payments.

CheckMark Payroll can be used on a standalone basis or it can be integrated with other accounting solutions including QuickBooks, and Checkmark’s MultiLedger Integrated Accounting Software.

Supported Operating System(s):

Mac OS, Windows 8, Windows 10

Payroll made easy

I do like this product.

Pros

Very easy setup. Being able to add and delete items in the player file. Print forms to screen then email. Best it's always updated I do not have to do this myself.

Cons

Little Frustrating to make changes on checks. Also choosing a month for payroll and reports you have to scroll through every month instead of a drop-down box and making a selection which would be quicker.

Software for companies that want more help to manage payroll.

It is an excellent payroll software easy to use for small businesses that want a complete solution DIY and the ability to host their own data.

Pros

What I like most about CheckMark is that it gives me the option to deposit directly in physical checks, its interface is very intuitive and it is very positive that it is compatible with Windows 10.

Cons

The only drawback I can find in this application is that it is intended only to small businesses rather than large companies that handle a larger number of employees. It would be interesting if it could expand.

THis program is delightful. The support staff walk you thru problems, never making you feel "a computer dummy". Easy to install. Easy to use.

They - CheckMark - have made quarterly /year end reports almost a pleasure. All that is required is to double check your imput.

Pros

Everything - set-up and changing employee information- quarterly/year end tax returns. Payroll - each and every portion of the basic payroll program is very easy to use.

Have used CheckMark Payroll from the beginning

I have always used a Mac since computerizing my dental practice in 1994. CheckMark Payroll has always been user friendly with all of my apple computers, no matter what OS I was using at the time. The customer support has been prompt, courteous and always got the issue solved. The updates are easy to install. It has been so great throughout the years to have such a reliable, easy, yet efficient payroll and year end software for my business. The software and support packages are very reasonably priced compared to other companies. And as I said, customer service has been outstanding and easily available. I especially like the ease of use, since I am the "IT" person in my business, and don't like to waste time on computer issues. I prefer to focus on my patients instead!

Pros

User friendly, Mac friendly, great support. Competitively priced.

Cons

Never had any unsurmountable issues.

For over 20 Years

Pros

Since 1994 I have used Checkmark payroll and MultiLedger accounting software and love it. The user friendly ability to set it up, manage the accounts and update without major learning curves makes this my number one choice!

Cons

No problems on either, they always call back if I need attention, the cost is reasonable for the product. I do wish it had a job costing that was not attached to the MultiLedger.

Simple, cost effective and Efficient..........

Checkmark makes payroll a seamless good experience. Hiring employees is easy. The best thing is that they support if you stuck anywhere. I am using this software from last 1 year and happy. There is nothing which i dislike. All payroll headaches have been eliminated. No filing of paperwork required. All of our taxes are already calculated and taken care of and we don not have to do a thing.

Hassle free payroll processing

Hassle free payroll processing

Pros

Constant updates and patches, with alerts when you open the program to let you know they are available for download.

Cons

I don't believe the program offers the option to file taxes directly.

Very satisfied with this product

Pros

I love this program. I had recently tried a popular program for payroll and did not like it at all. CheckMark Payroll loads quickly, there aren't a hundred steps to go through to set up employees; it is very user-friendly and accomplishes exactly what I need for my business!

Cons

I cannot think of anything wrong with the program.
