Payroll Software

I'm considering doing payroll by myself instead of continuing to pay the accountant to do it. I currently have 2 employees, possibly going up to 3 before the end of the year. What software do you guys recommend? I'd be ok with something simple.

Use the payroll deductions calculator on CRA's website - it is very easy.

I want to have the ability to do direct deposit and print T4's. I've already been suggested QuickBooks Payroll, just looking to see if there are any better alternatives.

I currently use Payworks. Super easy to navigate, takes minimal time to getting used to it.

Their customer service was really good with helping me navigate our first payroll run. You can get a better pricing for payroll if you're a member of CFIB.

Even if I wasn't part of CFIB, I would recommend payworks.

TeamPay by ADP, simple cloud-based tool perfect for small businesses with just a few employees. With it you get the direct deposit, automatic remittances to the government, online access to paystubs/T4's, electronic ROE's, and stat holiday calculator.
