by admin 30. January 2013 08:44

EzPaycheck software is designed to simplify paycheck processing for small businesses. The 2013 version supports multiple Non-regular Wages to meet users' special needed. Here is an example:

I can't find a payroll that will work for drivers paid by percentage. My Drivers percentage is done by the load and then the job. Some companies I pay higher percent than others but it’s all done by each load.

1. Start ezPaycheck payroll software, click the left menu "Company Settings->Wage Setup" to open Company Wage Setup screen.
