Again they are brand new in payroll- more will be revealed.

Pros

On pro side they keep it simple! Perfect for small business.

Cons

Price! After years of ADP - being nickel & dimed for every teeny-tiny service- it is delightful to decrease these costs.
Very new. Very limited options. They are new to the game of payroll so expect limited options and functionality.

Square is not setup to hancle 501 (c) 3 payroll. They should make this disclaimer

Pros

It's cheap. The feature where employees and contractors can enter their own bank and withholding information is good. That's about it.

Cons

Will not exempt charitable organizations from FUTA and local taxes that, by law, they don't have to pay. Customer support isn't that great. Square is new to the payroll business and it shows.

Pros

The customer service is wonderful - everyone I talked to has been professional and helpful. Having taxes withdrawn and submitted for me is very helpful!

Cons

There is not currently a place for reimbursements that aren't taxed. I pay my employees mileage and need a way to do this untaxed. However, customer service was very receptive to adding this in the future.

Square really is the all around tool! You can use this for anything no matter how big your business is. You can use this if it is just you or you can use this as a company and even control your payroll with it. It also allows you to take payments on the fly.

Pros

Vary easy to use

Cons

Multiple apps for different uses

Pros

Affordability, ease of use and also the employee clock in/out feature. Having all the information available on-line. Being able to check the Square app and see who is clocked in and how many hours total worked.

Cons

Some features seem to have bugs? Have to play around, go out of feature and go back in for things to work correctly. Ran into a couple of issues that the help feature didn't answer and one time tech support with payroll experience wasn't available. Biggest issue is that I'm not given enough time to review and run payroll - if I don't get in by Monday night, my employees will not receive their direct deposit by Friday - and holidays are worse! Not necessarily a software issue but I believe you should know, I have used several other companies throughout the years and always had a few days to process and get checks in time.

Pros

I love how employees can set up direct deposit OR have a manual check, along with Square withholding the taxes and telling me exactly how much has to written in the check.

Very easy to manage employees, adjust hourly rate, overtime, timecards and off-cycle payments.

Cons

Wish there was a way to bulk add employee timecards. For example, if an employee works 5 days a week from home (I know of Homebase, but from a manual perspective) and the same hours every day. I currently have to submit 5 timecards, instead of one batch one.

Employees ask about seeing a breakdown of their hours inside of a pay period.

Pros

Easy to use product, easy to set up, excellent customer service provided by Square Payroll team and were willing to answer all our Square Payroll questions.

Cons

Additional feature for direct Timecard entry without using the Point of Sale app would be good too. Haven't come across any other cons with the software at the moment.

Most of my small business POS and payroll tasks can be handled with this one system.
There is a lot of flexibility to match the system to my business specific categories, product lines, items and variations.

Cons

Lack of automating conversion of information from this to quickbooks. Returns/exchanges
Library organization limitations - you put what is a priority to you at the top instead of what is a proirity to me.
Square Gift cards are too expensive to use.

I like the simplicity of it. Also like that I can do direct deposit or check. The customer service answers phone pretty quick as well, and they are pretty nice people to deal with.

Cons

If you are brand new to payroll, it doesn't give you enough information to correctly get everything setup. (i.e. I didn't realize I had to also setup with dept of revenue). Also confusing trying to figure out how the square system works on conjunction with dept of revenue.

We can mostly just comment regarding the payroll side of the software since that's what we mostly use the dashboard for. We like that the dashboard is well put together.

Cons

What we'd like to see is if there's an option to give somebody a raise starting a specific date rather than calculating what their "extras" and just inputting it as a bonus. Also maybe some type of multiple hourly rate per person.
