Benefits of a Pay Stub Portal:

1. Taxes

With a payroll portal, you’re able to review your tax withholdings anytime to make sure you’re on target for tax year end and you don’t need to make any changes.

Employers can also instantly access tax reports for business purposes.

2. PTO

Tired of tracking down your payroll manager or HR person to check up on your available time off? Wouldn’t it be nice to instantly see your current available PTO without interrupting someone else’s day?

Employers can also use the payroll portal to easily track hours, their own PTO, or see how their employees are doing on attendance and tardiness.

3. Benefits

Easily track important benefits like savings plans for vacation and Christmas. Or, you can quickly see your payments to insurance like health, dental, vision etc. A pay stub portal also gives you easy access to track payments to FSAs and more.

4. Less Paper

Reduce paper usage! Reduce costs and waste. We can all appreciate that. A lot of business owners are looking for ways to pinch pennies and be more environmentally friendly. Just like switching to electronic bills and bank statements, it’s just less hassle.

5. Fast and Organized

There are a lot of situations where you would need a quick way to access recent pay stubs (like purchasing a home). A pay stub portal makes that easy! No more digging through your files or waiting for your employer to find it. You can also access your W-2 instead of waiting for HR staff to send them in the snail mail.
