Payroll Services for Small Businesses

PayRunner Payroll is reliable, flexible, and focused on your business.

Orange State Of The City 22-318 copy

Payroll is our service, honesty is our business, ethics is our promise.

My wife and I put all of our money into starting Payrunner Payroll, and have worked hard over the past 18 + years to fill the gap in the payroll service industry between the services the large payroll companies offer and the needs of small businesses.

You are not just a number to us — you are a real person and we understand your needs, because as small business owners ourselves, we deal with the same daily issues you do.

We believe that you have the right to choose your payroll provider, from non-penalizing service responsiveness, flexibility to run payroll your way, and the benefit of a owner-to-owner relationship that protectively advises you in your local community — not a national company that only knows you by number.

It’s our mission to serve you as friends and fellow leaders. We’ll be there for you when you need us most.
