Basic Payroll Service Pricing Variables


Payroll services charge for different basic payroll specifications. Here are the most critical factors in pricing a basic payroll package:


The Number of States You Will Pay Taxes To

Fees will be added per state that we need to process per pay period. If your employees all live in the same state, you will only need to pay taxes to one state.


Your Selected Pay Frequency

The more often you pay your employees, the more often we process your payroll. This means higher fees per pay period. Our offered pay frequencies include weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly.


The Number of Employees on Payroll

Payroll fees are heavily influenced by the number of employees on payroll. There will typically be a small fee per employee per pay period.

Payroll Service Add-Ons

There are a variety of optional add-on services that go beyond a basic payroll package. These come at additional costs.

Here are the add-ons that we provide:

Tax Service Pricing

We don't offer one-off business tax services, but the costs associated with year-round tax strategy, preparing your taxes, and filing your taxes are all included in your monthly accounting fee.

The Value of Year-Round Tax Strategy

Proper tax strategy consists of three things: tax planning, projections, and preparation. Bookkeeping solutions and tax solutions can't capture the full picture the way that monthly accounting does.

All year long, tax strategy (done through monthly accounting) monitors your situation to help reduce the stress of tax season and legally minimize what you owe.

The Cost of Back Taxes


If you didn't get your taxes filed this year (and maybe even the years before that!) and want to come on board with CSI Accounting & Payroll, then you'll need back taxes.

Back taxes, or back work, are necessary to get a business’s books caught up when they are transitioning from one accounting service to another. It is also part of how CSI is able to guarantee audit-proofed books at no additional cost.

The basic formula to determine the price of your back work is:

Back Work Fee = # of Prior Months to Work On * Monthly Fee
