Payroll software have become an increasingly popular way to manage wages within small, medium, and big businesses. Cloud based payroll solutions are especially prevalent now, especially among small to medium sized businesses. There are a lot of difficult packages out there though, so choosing can be difficult. This list will hopefully give you a better idea of the pros and cons of each software suite, so you can be sure you are making the right choice for your business.
There are a number of benefits of using cloud based payroll solutions including cutting costs and increasing the resilience and reliability of your payroll system. All of this means a lot less stress for you, so you can spend time on what really matters to your business. So, without further ado, here’s a list of the best payroll applications on the market today.


Quickbooks is an account software suite that’s designed to suite a wide range of businesses. With Quickbooks you get the choice of both on-site and cloud-based solution, so you can pick whatever suits your business best. At its very heart it’s designed to help simplify taxes, payroll, and deductions, so you can spend more time on more important things.
Quickbooks offers a number of different plans for their cloud-based solution, so you can choose one that’s tailored to your business needs. These plans range from Self-employed to Plus and range in price depending on the functionality and scalability. These plans involve a monthly payment.
In terms of desktop plans, you’ll most likely be buying the software outright instead of paying a monthly fee. Their desktop plans run from the Pro version all the way up to Enterprise Platinum. Again the price varies based on the functionality and scalability.


Unlike Quickbooks, Xero only offers a cloud-based payroll solution. This may not be an issue for you if you’ve decided that hosting your payroll software in the cloud is the best answer for your business though. It’s primarily designed to be online accounting software for small businesses, but it does also have a payroll component.
Xero is great if all you need is an easy-to-use solution that will allow you to automate your payroll rather than doing it manually. It’s really affordable and, best of all, it has no hidden fees.
Xero has slightly fewer options than Quickbooks which is understandable considering it only caters to small businesses. You can go for the starter package, standard package, or premium package. As with Quickbooks, each plan differs in terms of scalability and functionality.


Like Quickbooks, Kashflow offers both a cloud-based and locally installed solution, so it’s a little bit more flexible that way. Again, it caters mainly for small businesses, but does have some features that might be useful to a medium or large businesses as well. Like all the other software suites lister here, Kashflow is primarily an accounting application, so it’s unsurprising that in order to get the payroll feature you have to pay for their most expensive package, the Business and Payroll package. Their other two packages, Starter and Business, don’t have any payroll functionality. This puts it at a bit of a disadvantage when compared to Xero and Quickbooks, but it’s still a solid package.
