At Clearwater, our professionally-certified team of bookkeepers and accountants are experts in payroll processing, with over 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. We are here to make the task of payroll processing easier for you. We can also help you set up a range of employee benefits and understand the impact that these benefits will have on your payroll deductions.

Payroll Processing Services

Did you know that nearly 40% of small business owners cite regulation and paper burden, such as payroll, as one of the biggest challenges to running their business? The average small business spends about 12 hours per employee on payroll processing each year, which can cost your business thousands of dollars every year.

Our payroll processing services will ensure that your employees are paid on time, via direct deposit or cheque. Your Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Employment Insurance (EI), income tax, and WSIB deductions will be precise and up-to-date — and you can rest assured that your taxes and remittances have been calculated accurately and on time.
