Accounting software for farmers is developed with all sorts of agricultural metrics and information tracking in mind. Some of these systems are designed with very specific goals and functionality in mind. Farm Logic, for example, specializes in farm and field scouting software. EasyKeeper is something of a go-to for goat herd management software. Layer Farm specializes in poultry layer systems. Cattlemax does cattle record keeping. Then there’s Cropzilla and Croptracker. And these are just a few of the numerous examples for targeted farm management software.
It’s also worth pointing out that Quicken and Quickbooks offer basic accounting software for farmers that is popular with those looking for simple accounting support. But even these products don’t have the kind of payroll and filing support that will help with your agricultural employment forms.
How to Shop for and Buy Accounting Software for Farmers
Indeed, a lot of developers don’t include payroll and filing forms as part of their accounting software for farmers. Other software providers combine software for farm management with a few basic payroll features and then overcharge based on the idea that they offer a comprehensive solution. The problem is the payroll and employer filing support costs more and does less than the software support from AMS. Often, a much better plan is to look for specialized software for farm management. Then, you can pair this day-to-day operational software with our versatile farm payroll and employer filing solutions.
Get Better Payroll and Filing Software for Farm Management
AMS has developed our software so as to avoid the two big things that cause small businesses—including farmers—to overpay for their software features. Our modular product approach means, for one low flat-fee rate, you can get the payroll and filing form support that addresses the particular accounting needs at your farm.
It all starts with the intuitive, menu-driven interface and data management features of our W-2/1099 Forms Filer. This platform software is already enough to prepare W-2 and 1099 forms and print the information on pre-printed forms. What’s more, our Forms Filer software creates several different product combinations and packaging solutions:
- Forms Filer Plus: This product is used by farm businesses looking for software support for Form 943 and other agricultural employment forms, including for all 50 states, D.C.,
- AMS Payroll Software: In addition to the farm employment filings, this software provides a complete payroll solution with automated paycheck calculations, easy information reporting, and data management that ties your payroll to your quarterly and annual filing forms.
- E-File Software: You’ll already be able to file certain employer forms electronically with these other product modules. These solutions, however, offer comprehensive e-file services, including mailing services from a third-party vendor.
- Other Products: Software Generated Forms enables you to print out blank forms for most filing requirements. It also lets you print your own MICR checks. The ACA Filer is used for any businesses with Form 1095 filing requirements. We also offer support for Form 1042-S for reporting payments made to foreign persons/entities.
