Payroll – A lot of business owners wish they had more hands on with this area of their business. But unfortunately a lot of them simply can’t do that because it either takes too much time, too much thinking, too much math or just too much headache if something goes wrong. To most business owners the very thought of having to be in charge of making sure your employees and the IRS get paid, can be simply terrifying. So at great cost, in several aspects, most business owners tend to hire an outside firm to complete this daunting task.

But what if you could be easily taught to master the payroll process yourself or have a current employee learn it or both? What if you could have that desired “hands on” with payroll and see where ALL of your business’s funds are going?
