Horizon Payroll Helps You Stop Pushing Paper and Start Pushing Your Business

Automation can save businesses of all sizes time and money every payday. An automated payroll system eliminates mistakes, ensures workers are paid on time, and helps employers to remain in compliance with employment, labor and tax laws. Plus, it allows HR departments and business owners to focus on building the business instead of chores.

Success Stories Frequently Asked

Business owners, office managers or HR professionals spend almost five hours of every working day taking care of basic payroll tasks. This is what researchers from a leading polling firm discovered when they interviewed more than a thousand entrepreneurs.

Over the course of a year, that adds up to an entire working month lost to basic chores that an automated system could take care of almost instantaneously.

HR Support

Horizon keeps track of changes to wage and hour laws and workplace regulations so you can concentrate on more important matters. Our custom employee handbooks, job descriptions and HR documents are revised automatically when changes are needed to keep you compliant, and our HR On-Demand service allows you to consult with an experienced HR professional online or over the phone whenever you have a question or need help.

Payroll Management

Our payroll management services set industry standards with a cloud-based interface that allows our clients to view and approve payroll from anywhere and in real-time and general ledger integration that eliminates manual processing and streamlines back-end accounting processes. You won’t have to call IT to create custom dashboards or reports as this is done with simple drag-and-drop commands, and our proprietary software even sends out alerts when tax notices require a response or payments are due.

Time & Attendance

Workers who are not compensated for the hours they work tend to get upset even when they are paid on time. Horizon’s automated scheduling and timekeeping solutions prevent this from happening, and they also reduce errors and eliminate redundancy. Adding flexibility to scheduling improves workplace morale and avoids coverage gaps, and electronic monitoring puts an end to fraud like buddy punching that costs American employers more than $373 million each year.

Horizon can help you to build such a team with Jobalign data driven help-wanted advertising to attract top talent and a Smart Apply process that improves completion rates by as much as 400%. Once you have the right candidates on board, our cloud-based interface and automated onboarding process will make them feel right at home.

“We worked with Horizon to get our ERC (Employee Retention Credit) submitted and processed.  Horizon’s data was exactly what my accountant and I needed to prepare the necessary forms. We secured close to a $500,000 credit as a result!”
