About Pacific Payroll Group
Pacific Payroll Group was started in 2008 to meet the demand for a payroll service company that focused on payroll for small and medium sized businesses. It is our goal to not be a call center but to be your payroll department – offer advice, educate about payroll taxes, handle reporting projects, process your quarterly and annual tax reports, keep up to date on new labor laws – and offer these same services available from the big payroll corporations at a much lower cost.
We are insured and bonded and have a BBB rating of A+. We utilize an ACH processor with multiple servers located throughout the US as well as a back up processor to ensure direct deposits and tax payments arrive on time, every time.
Payroll data is backed up to a secure offsite location and internal office controls create a safe, secure environment for your sensitive payroll and employee data.
