Payroll simulator


Anything that smooths the daily functions of your payroll and HR teams is valuable to your entire organization. That’s why many HR solutions businesses now offer an hourly paycheck calculator designed to provide general estimates of an employee’s correct annual salary amount. A paycheck calculator can help mid-sized and small businesses determine net pay after income taxes, Most payroll simulator programs calculate take-home pay for hourly employees based on gross pay, hourly rate, number of pay periods, dependents, filing status, and other tax considerations. Those are combined with tax withholdings for federal, state, and local taxes, and withholdings for social security and other specific requirements.

Note that a payroll calculator should be used for general guidance and estimates. Employers should refer to a professional for serious tax or legal advice.
