I have been using the AccountantsWorld Payroll Relief service for almost two years. Below I’ll give a Payroll Relief review so you can judge for yourself whether it’s worth it or not. Send me questions if you have them and I’ll be glad to answer them.
Con: The design is very Web 1.0 – which basically means if you’re used to a nice looking application like many of the online accounting applications (eg Xero, Wave, Freshbooks or Harvest) you’ll notice that AccountantsWorld Payroll Relief looks like it was designed in 1999 and hasn’t changed since then. The design is completely unappealing so if you enable the client-facing features you’ll be negating the tech-savvy advantage because of the poor design quality.
Pro: There is a very secure log in and seams to be verified SSL by Go Daddy.
Con: They don’t automatically log you out if you leave your workstation which is a security issue they should fix.
Pro: Only $9.99 per client with less than 5 employees, HOWEVER, read the cons.
Con: They charge you $9.99 per month even if you don’t run a payroll for your client.
Con: They charge you $9.99 per month to restore a client that has been terminated. For instance, if you have a client that stops using your payroll service in March and comes back in December to run an end-of-year bonus payroll, you’ll have to pay $9.99 PER MONTH from March THROUGH December to restore the client. Hosting data in the cloud should be pennies, not more.
Con: They charge an annual fee of $190 just to sign up in addition to charging for every payroll.
