The opening of Payrolls Plus in South Florida in September 2004 was a result of the demand for a company with a specific service philosophy. The philosophy of combining the benefits and resources of the largest payroll service companies with the service commitment and delivery of a locally owned business has proven to be a winning combination.
Our office is owned and operated by CPAs. We serve clients throughout the US via phone, email and via the internet using proprietary state of the art platforms focused on meeting today’s ever increasing mobile world.
Payrolls Plus is centrally located in South Florida to serve local businesses located throughout Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties enabling the ability of working face to face. However, we currently serve clients throughout the Country. Our clients have direct phone access; no phone banks or “800” numbers. We utilize licensed software from a national software company as the backbone of our system. Thus the software applications are kept up to date with tax law and rate updates and enhanced with new features. Our team works with you.
