Manually running payroll can take a long time and a lot of math. Zenefits speeds things up by automating as many payroll features as possible. For example, if you use Zenefits for scheduling and time off, it will automatically calculate time worked and time off (used and accumulated), so you don’t have to manually calculate paychecks. Likewise, it can automatically take care of benefits and tax deductions.
Plus, Zenefits can handle special payroll situations. If you have a new hire, say, Zenefits can automatically prorate their first paycheck based on their start date. Or if you have an employee with wage garnishments, Zenefits can take care of calculating and remitting those for you.
Now, all these great features don’t come standard with Zenefits’s HR-focused plans. In most cases, you’ll have to pay extra to get them (though it sometimes runs time-limited promotions for free payroll). Still, Zenefits has fast, painless payroll worth paying for.
