Where We Came From

Our story starts with Ron. About 10 years ago he realized the tax software industry was targeting the self-prepared tax return market. In order to compete with TurboTax, FastTax, etc. he knew he needed to adapt. Tax preparation would not be enough to keep his CPA firm growing.

He began by focusing on the tax needs of small business owners, specifically payroll.

But he soon ran into serious growing pains. The needs of his clients were constantly causing him to have to work long nights and weekends. He couldn’t find an affordable software package that was flexible and easy to learn.

He needed an easier way to run payroll without selling off his clients and losing his profits, to a third party provider.

Ron was not alone. We realized that there were many more accountants just like him that we’re looking for an easier way to provide payroll to their clients.

And so, Payroll Hive was born.

How We Are Different

We are a full-service payroll provider. This means that we do everything from collecting hours, sending direct deposit, escrowing taxes, filing quarterly and year-end reports and everything else that your payroll clients need. The best part? You don’t have to learn any software. Everything is 100% automated from our end.

Unlike the other big payroll providers, we understand how important your clients are to you. In no way do we want to take them from you. We are here to give you the tools to grow your practice and make thousands more each month by offering payroll services to your clients.

You will be given a customized web portal with your name and logo on it. You and your clients are given logins so that you can submit hours and view and create reports.

You have full control over how much you want to charge your clients. Please view this post for more information about how our pricing model works.
