Pros

It is easy to use and has readily available American tech support.

Cons

I initially had a long and terrible conversation with a supervisor there when I first set up the program. She was rude and uninformed, and had me at my wits' end. I almost gave up on the program because of her. I do wish you provide more help about integrating with QuickBooks. It was a real nightmare to get that right, and it should have been simple.

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!

Definitely an A overall and have no intentions of switching to another provider. If I leave it would be because I stop offering payroll services OR have an extremely bad experience, which I just don't forsee happening.

Pros

The customer service is outstanding and one of the main reasons that I would not switch to another software. In a day in age where automated and AI are the new norm, it is refreshing to be able to directly speak with / chat with a real live person.

Cons

The number of days needed ahead of time to submit direct deposit payroll.
