I have no complaints and I'm very happy with the payroll software and the professionalism that is provided. I love it and have recommended this to every business person that I know.

Pros

The simplicity of the software is so user-friendly. Also, if you do have a question you can call and speak with a professional and get patient and competent help and you don't have to strain to try to understand through a thick accent as to what is being said.

Cons

If you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.

My accountant disappeared, I'm assuming it is because she defrauded her clients and I can't reach her or find her anywhere.

Patriot Software is refusing to give me the payroll records for my business so I can be law-abiding and get my taxes done.

I have explained to them NUMEROUS times the following:

After continually forgetting to run payroll, my previous accountant told me she was selling her business and passing me on to the person she sold it to who would take over my account from there.

Well, she and this other person completely ghosted me and my 2020 taxes never got done. Between dealing with the pandemic fallout and lack of available, trustworthy accountants it took me until mid-2021 to find a good accountant to help me get caught up.

I was paying her to do my accounting and my new accountant said my books are a mess and nothing makes any sense. My bookkeeping wasn't being done at all. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] was charging me and sending me false reports on top of the mistakes on my payroll. Oh and she wasn’t even a real CPA I finally learned as well.

These revelations plus the fact that she has disappeared from the face of the earth leads me to believe I wasn't the only client she was defrauding and she doesn't want to be found.

Patriot Software continues to tell me: 'They can't release my records without my payroll provider’s written permission' and there is nothing they can do to help me. They said they will reach out to her and get back to me when they hear back fr

Pros

Nothing. It was a pain A business owner can't access it, only the accountant

Cons

As a business owner, Patriot will hold your records hostage if your accountant defrauds and disappears on you. Patriot will never be on the business owners' side. Customer service is terrible!

The Patriot Payroll staff is AMAZING to work with! [sensitive content hidden] has been my guide and coach all the way through. Every time I call with a question, [sensitive content hidden] answers it easily and walks me through to be sure I get what he's teaching me. I can't state enough that Patriot has been a game-changer for me in my office workload. Every month, every quarter, I'm saving HOURS of manual work that I can now apply elsewhere.

Pros

I love how easy it was to switch my payroll from an annually purchased in-house software package, to the Patriot system. I love that I no longer have to open a file, save a backup, and process each employee individually, print tax reports monthly, quarterly, and annually. I wasted so much time in the past. Besides being easier, this payroll system is actually less expensive in the long haul for hours of work saved.

Cons

Having to modify my in-house record keeping on Quicken software. I'd been set up for my manual payroll previously, with automated entry system in quicken. I've had to modify that process over time to be sure and track my tax payments. Not a huge deal, more of a process of transitioning from one system to another. Still a WHOLE LOT EASIER to manage than all the work I did before.

Changing payroll providers is a big decision as it can be a lot of work and accuracy of both payroll and tax compliance are critical. We have been very happy with Patriot and intend to be with them a long time.

Pros

I own two companies and after moving one to Patriot Payroll, it was an easy decision to move the other. The online interface is easy and intuitive, support has always been prompt and correct, and tax compliance is accurate.

Cons

I really don’t have any cons at this time.
