Overview

Patriot Payroll launched in 1988 with the mission of making payroll fast and affordable for small businesses. Today, it has followed through on that goal with a range of offerings—from basic-service to full-service with add-ons—that make it possible for businesses to get an affordable payroll provider with low-cost options for scaling up.

While Patriot doesn’t have a mobile app, the site is mobile-optimized so you can access on your smartphone. Basic payroll is an option for small business owners who would like to do their own payroll tax filings and deposits. You can pay contracts if you purchase the 1099 package as an add-on for an extra $7.50/month. That being said, Patriot does offer exceptional customer service along with its own accounting software, HR recordkeeping and time-tracking tools that business owners can add on to their existing plan if their business needs change.
