Payroll can be a big challenge for small businesses
Over the last few years, small businesses have seen new resources for handling payroll. These companies offer a low fee to begin, then charge higher rates because there just isn’t any real competition. Payroll just got easier and cheaper for your small business.
Visage Payroll is a new service for business owners. It bills itself as a free service that eliminates your company’s payroll fees. On the website, it says that it is ad based, but it doesn’t expand on that statement. Visage will also process your payroll taxes. Once you’ve uploaded the information about your employees to the system that was built from the ground up, you submit your payroll information and let the computer handle the rest.
Visage withdraws the money from your bank a few day before payroll is due. Employees receive a direct deposit and notification that their money is in their bank account. Visage also pays your federal and state taxes on your behalf. Could it get any better?
The future of payroll is “free and infinite”
According to the LinkedIn profile of the Chief Entrepreneur Officer, Craig J. Lewis, “We see a future where payroll is free and infinite. We are on a mission to provide Free Payroll to 1,000,000 small businesses and startups in the next 5 years. Visage Payroll is making payroll cool, inspiring, and futuristic. We’ve designed our technology for you the person not the process. We are the payroll un-processor.”
Visage is in beta testing, and your company can check it out. It’s software that works for you. One complaint of other payroll services is the monthly billing cycle that can slow down processing. Your employees won’t get paid if your payment hasn’t been processed. Visage takes that element out of the process.
If Visage does what it says, it could change the industry. Right now, it certainly provides more options for you. Visage has a widespread online presence in Google+, LinkedIn, and other social media. There is a lot of information about the founders, which shows validity. If you’ve been struggling with payroll, this looks like a great opportunity to take the stress off you and save some money.
