Looking to see what y'all recommend for payroll. Applications, spreadsheets, etc.

I found a spreadsheet template on the Microsoft site, but it doesn't handle tips.

      It depends....on how much experience you have and what type of system you are using now. Not considering those two factors, I would suggest using a CPA for the first year you do your payroll, this willl get you started off correctly and make sure that you do the proper reporting and payment of taxes. (Be sure you establish a seperate payroll account--no exceptions!)

      After the first year, strike out on your own doing payroll, either use the same program that the CPA uses, or I suggest Quicken Payroll, the in-house version. However, the on-line verision will also help eliminate some problems also.

      Other factors to consider, how much time wil you have to devote to payroll each week, and how computer literate you really are.

        My business is not a restaurant, but it is a business large enough to need a CPA. We use an older version of Quickbooks, not because it is the best (but it might be), but because it is what my CPA firm prefers. They have several Quickbook experts on staff so info moves from our system to theirs very easily. Our CPA bill dropped a lot when we moved to Quickbooks. As Burgarman says, talk to your CPA.
