Additionally, get details about the specific federal relief programs and refundable credits available through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES), and other helpful resources to help you take care of your business and your people.

We recommend discussing these options with your accountant or trusted advisor to determine the best course of action to leverage the incentives available.

We’ve created a report that is currently available for Paychex Flex® users, clients not on Paychex Flex, and former clients to help make applying for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan simpler. Find more information about the PPP loan application process in our customer support section.

Business Expense Calculator

Ever find yourself asking "Just how much are we spending?" Use this simple business expense calculator to help you organize spending in one place.

  • Begin with the "overhead expenses" tab and enter your best estimation of the costs in that area.
  • In the "Labor Expense" tab, enter your business' data down the first column, labeled "Min Per Week" with the number of minutes you or your administrator/office manager spends on these business tasks. The business expense calculator will automatically calculate out the rest of the columns.
  • In the third column, you'll see your totals from the other two tabs tallied, giving you an educated estimation of your annual costs.

To learn more about reducing business expenses, like outsourcing payroll administration, contact a Paychex small business specialist.
