Our Virtual Payroll and HR Service frees you from the laundry list of daunting tasks required to run payroll for your employees accurately and on time. We use cloud technology from Gusto and TSheets to fully manage the Payroll and HR cycle of your business: schedule and track employee time, automatically calculate taxes and withholdings, direct deposit wages, and file W-2s and tax returns.

This ensures 100% accuracy and timeliness while avoiding human error and frustration. We'll help you configure the systems, develop your process, and provide training to ensure successful transition to our cloud-based and automated services -- all included with your service plan!


Innovate's Virtual Payroll and HR Service features flat-fee and transparent pricing based on your number of employees and desired level of service. Choose between bi-weekly or semi-monthly pay periods for both salaried and hourly employees.
