Business Payroll Software For In-House Accounting Departments

A lot of businesses initially underestimate the cost and uncertainty of producing error-free payroll processing for each pay period. Yet, given the cost of third-party payroll services, it still makes sense for many companies to keep their payroll and accounting operations in-house. With this in mind, you need to know that your business payroll software is an easy-to-use data management tool that delivers reliable paycheck processing and payroll reports.

Business Payroll Software from AMS

Our system is derived from two key software programs. W-2/1099 Forms Filer is our foundational program that allows our business clients to build a custom collection of payroll management, tax form preparation, and e-filing services. This platform includes a wide range of data entry, data reporting, and printable forms. On top of this software foundation, businesses can then add the AMS Payroll module. All in, this software package costs $208, though additional features are also available through other AMS software modules. Key features from AMS Payroll Software include:

  • Live and After-The-Fact payroll processing.
  • Support for all 50 states plus DC and Puerto Rico including SUI forms.
  • Support for up to 1,999 payers and up to 9,999 employees per payer.
  • Network installation included with site license.
  • Automatic calculation of payroll taxes.
  • Up to date state and federal tax tables, including tax liabilities.
  • 40 user defined fields for custom features.
  • Processing for direct deposit and over 30 different types of checks, including MICR checks.
  • Data importing/exporting for year-end processing.
  • Certified payroll reports and SSN verification files.


One of the ways you know that the AMS business payroll software is a superior product is that it’s used by both in-house accounting departments and third-party payroll vendors. Even complex payroll accounting becomes incredibly efficient by properly setting up the 40 user defined fields available through our payroll software module. The combination of comprehensive software features within an intuitive, menu-driven platform is something that everybody seeks from their payroll software.

Business Payroll Software for any Industry

More than software with versatile features and an intuitive interface, many businesses require specific, specialized payroll and tax software capabilities. With our Forms Filer Plus, you can take care of all your federal tax reporting requirements including 940 unemployment returns, 943 tax forms for agricultural businesses, multiple worksite reports, and railroad retirement tax returns. In addition, AMS software can help U.S. businesses process payroll that occurs with foreign persons and financial institutions.

The Forms Filer Plus module also includes a wide range of state tax forms for specific industries and other tax reporting requirements. You might run a mining business in Nevada, for example, that falls under the state’s Modified Business tax returns. Maybe your New York company must file state returns for its Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax (MCTMT). Or you may need to comply with California’s unique reporting guidelines for household workers. Each of these payroll and tax filing needs, along with many others, can be handled with AMS software.
