Quickbooks is good only if you are willing to pay the monthly fee.

If you don't mind some manual entry, I have used cra's payroll calculator, copy and paste the results onto an ms word document. There are some things missing on the cra payroll calculator that you need to manually enter, such as ytd figures.

I'm actually curious myself for a better way to easily generate pay stubs. The manual entry is killing me!

I guess letting your accountant do it for you is out of the question?

hiring an accountant is not what a true rfd'er does I guess, atleast I am not thinking at this point on this path..

thanks, that looks reasonable approach, probably I am thinking now a template in excel and then update numbers on every payroll, later use pdfprinter to email emplyee updated copy perodically along with salary cheque.

A true RFDer would do the thing that makes most sense money wise. Pretty sure a good accountant fits the bill.
But what you're doing is ok too if that is what you want.

You can try the new wave accounting. Software is free but payroll $2 / pay period. I have not tested the payroll feature but I did test the software. It seems like a good one.

I used wave for my bookkeeping needs and got charged $15 for every pay peroid???

That was why I stopped using wave payroll. Everytime I clicked on "Run payroll" it charged my credit card $15 which equates to $30 a month and honestly their pay stubs look pretty cheesy

Yeah. Per employee. I get it done through Ceridian with paystubs and T4s for about the same.
