Pittsburgh - Small business owners will be able to process their payroll from start to finish with a faster, more accurate and less expensive approach through an online payroll service now offered by PNC Bank.

Employee pay can be the single largest payment that a small business will make on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. With PNC Online Payroll, small business owners can enter payroll information, access detailed tax reports and calculate paychecks instantly to pay employees at any time and from any location where Internet access is available. It also simplifies payroll tax filing by automatically calculating all payroll taxes and sending users e-mail reminders when payroll tax filings are due, enabling easy electronic payment and filing. The service, provided by PayCycle®, allows most small business owners to run payroll in less than six minutes.

In addition, PNC Online Payroll is a complete solution that offers small businesses:

  • Direct deposit at no additional charge
  • Option to pay employees via paper checks
  • Employment tax support
  • Free W-2 processing
  • Employee access to electronic pay stub information

    "The adoption rate of online banking services is growing, and small businesses continue to look for ways to operate more efficiently - especially in managing their cash flow," said Jeffrey Schmidt, who oversees PNC's small business banking division. "The introduction of a faster, more convenient and cost-effective service to manage and execute the payroll process gives small business owners another innovative opportunity to automate their day-to-day back-office tasks so they can spend more time on building their business."

Accessed through a protected online banking site, it is another example of PNC's use of technological advances for customer solutions. In 2006, PNC launched a remote deposit service to simplify small business accounts receivables duties and to minimize branch visits.
