Overview

SurePayroll, acquired by Paychex in 2011, was founded in 2000 as one of the early entrants into the online payroll business and the first to have a mobile app. It has set itself apart by offering payroll services to smaller companies in specialized industries.

SurePayroll, while more expensive than its counterparts at first glance, remains competitive for small businesses with 10 or fewer employees— particularly those in the household service, nonprofit, restaurant, dental, accounting and insurance industries. It offers compliance law and tax regulation updates by industry/business type, and easy-to-setup payroll for multiple rates and earning types. It also has a customizable (though crowded) interface that offers detailed recordkeeping. For small businesses that rely heavily on contractors, there are extra costs for processing W2s and 1099s.
