Frequently Asked Questions

How does Paychex Accounting Online help small businesses that have accountants?

Many small businesses struggle to effectively use accounting technology. Even solutions that started out offering simplicity, like QuickBooks® have, over time, become complicated and difficult to use by business owners with limited bookkeeping experience and expertise. By providing a simple, easy-to-use, cloud-based solution, Paychex Accounting Online makes accounting more accessible to smaller businesses, reducing the likelihood of errors. This, plus the opportunities for collaboration offered by cloud computing, makes it easier for you to work with your accountant.

How can Paychex Accounting Online help your accountant work more effectively with you?

Technology can never replace accounting expertise, but it can reduce time spent on repetitive drudgery—entering client receipts, for example. With these kinds of tasks already accomplished by you and Paychex Accounting Online, your accountant can concentrate on more value-packed consultation and business planning advice that will help make you and your business succeed.

When can Paychex clients expect product integration?
