“Horizon provides that small business customer service that you just don’t get with the bigger providers. They’re even willing to reach out to the state or the bank with questions on our behalf and keep us in the loop on the outcome.”

Are There Any Other Ways that Horizon Can Help My Business?

Success Stories Frequently Asked

Horizon does much more than provide professional payroll solutions. We understand the challenges businesses face in the information age, and we know how difficult it can be to keep workers happy while complying with a myriad of federal and state laws.

Our solutions automate common tasks and prevent mistakes, and our experts are never more than a call or click away.

25. Professional HR Consulting

Payroll and HR Consultations

Complying with wage and hour laws, dealing with official forms, and keeping workers happy and motivated can be challenging even at the best of times. When the demands of a busy workplace become overwhelming, Horizon clients can turn to a team of experienced and caring professionals for help.


33. Expert Insights

Education and Expert Insights

Our experts can also provide you with advice and tips that could keep you out of trouble or add thousands of dollars to your bottom line. Our experts scrutinize new tax and HR regulations carefully, and they send out alerts whenever they notice something that could leave our clients vulnerable to official sanctions or cost them money. When the Work Opportunity Tax Credit was introduced, we let our clients know right away that they only had 28 days to submit the required paperwork and claim up to $9,600.


16. Minimize Manual Effort for Timekeeping

Employer and New Business Resources

Horizon speeds up processing times and prevents payroll mistakes, and we also give our clients access to important business resources. They can complete, download and print important tax and HR documents, and they can order the latest workplace posters required by federal and state labor laws.


24. HR On-Demand

Easy Login Portal

Our login portal has been designed to take some of the stress out of completing payroll and HR tasks. Logging in takes only a few seconds, and the interface has been designed to make accessing commonly used features easy. Our IT professionals can even create customized dashboards for clients with specific needs.


31. Labor Law Posters

Labor Law Posters

Federal and state laws require employers to post information about OSHA safety regulations, worker rights, the minimum wage and other important matters, and these rules are often changed. The penalties for falling to meet these requirements can be severe, but Horizon takes the hard work out of compliance. We provide our clients with access to labor law posters that meet all current local, state and federal standards, and we update them whenever changes are made.


7. Alerts and Reminders

Tax and HR Alerts

Modern businesses are expected to comply with dozens of federal and state laws dealing with payroll and HR issues, and the penalties for violating them can be harsh. When new laws are passed or existing regulations are revised, Horizon sends and alert directly to your inbox.


32. Downloadable Forms and Documents

Downloadable Forms and Documents

Important HR and tax forms are just a click away with Horizon Payroll Solutions, and you can be sure that any document you download will be the latest version. To free up even more time in your HR department, we offer an employee self-service feature that allows your workers to download and print W2s and paystubs directly.


Add-On Solutions for HR and Payroll Management

A streamlined payroll solution eliminates repetitive chores and saves money, and it can be integrated with additional features that provide even more benefits. These features protect sensitive data and help you to screen candidates more effectively, and they make it easy for your workers to access their money.


Fully Integrated Solutions for Businesses

Business solutions that look good on paper lose their luster quickly if they are incompatible with existing IT systems and infrastructure. Horizon offers a cloud-based solution that can be accessed by any connected device, and it has been engineered to work flawlessly with all of the most popular business applications.




Choosing the person to fill a crucial role can be a disastrous mistake for any business, but thorough background and reference checks are expensive and add time to the hiring process. Horizon has teamed up with Verified First to provide business owners with a solution to this problem. The Verified First platform allows you to create customized screening packages for each job role, and it integrates seamlessly with your applicant tracking system to make life easier for your HR personnel.
