Paychex Offers Business Owners Educational Resources During National Payroll Week

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In celebration of National Payroll Week, Paychex, Inc. is offering resources to help employers evaluate their current payroll processing method, and determine if it is the right solution for their business. With the right payroll solution, business owners can maximize their time, minimize back-office concerns, and keep employees happy with accurate and on-time paychecks.

The available resources will help business owners understand their payroll obligations, the elements that make up payroll, the importance of tax and regulatory compliance, and the options available to them for processing payroll.

“To most people, payroll equates to receiving a paycheck at the end of each pay period.
