Great Maine Payroll Service Starts with AMS Software

Maine is a hardy state. Its residents are seafood-loving, duck boot-wearing, hard-working people, and Maine small businesses deserve all the breaks they can get. That’s one of the reasons why we believe in providing an affordable and semi-automated Maine payroll service. We want you to spend time working on your business or product, not holed up in an office calculating withholding tax. A great Maine payroll tool will automatically calculate wages, withhold necessary taxes, store this data, and export information for seasonal and end-of-year reporting. This is precisely the service AMS can provide.


What Mainers Deserve

Maine small businesses deserve an excellent payroll software, which is exactly what we provide. AMS Payroll is a multi-use, semi-automated payroll product designed for small business owners without time to spare. In addition to performing basic payroll functions, such as check printing and direct deposit processing, AMS Payroll will automatically calculate and withhold local, state, and federal taxes. This data is then stored within the system to provide easy access for quarterly and end-of-year reporting. With several export options and state-specific form support, this is one of the most convenient and accessible payroll softwares available.  Our Maine payroll services generate, store, and apply essential information, alleviating the burden experienced by most small business owners. Below, we have listed additional features in our Maine payroll solution.

  • Imports data from QuickBooks, Excel, PeachTree, and Tab-Delimited Text Files
  • Exports data to a Tab-Delimited Text File and/or QuickBooks General Journal
  • Print checks individually or by date range
  • Creates an SSN Verification file
  • Easy Payer and Employee Setup
  • Automatic saving feature ensures data is never lost
  • Support for end-of-year reporting, tax form preparation, and electronic filing


Many Maine small businesses utilize Bangor Payroll, a localized payroll service. While this product performs basic payroll calculations and procedures, it fails to provide the superior tax and data management services offered by AMS. Sure, employers can file 941 electronically through their software, but with AMS, you can file 940, 941, 944, and 1040SchH. Bangor Payroll offers new hire reporting, but it does not provide any type of data management tool to maintain and store essential information for end-of-year reporting. While you may be comfortable with your current system, understand that payroll calculation and reporting are the minimum standard for software—tax services and data management are available on only the most effective products. AMS Payroll is one of those products, and it starts with our Forms Filer platform.
