Still exploring?

Whether large or small, all businesses must effectively manage payroll. If a small business doesn't pay its employees on time, or correctly, there could be legal consequences as well as increased employee turnover.

Payroll tasks can be time-consuming and complicated. And mistakes can be costly, especially if they're serious enough to incur regulatory penalties.

When looking to fill a position, you may wonder whether hiring a 1099 employee makes more sense than hiring a W-2 employee. How can you know which type of employee is best for your business?
