If you have your own business and need to print paychecks, there are several ways to go about this. A larger company will have a staff that handles all payroll issues and will probably use some type of computer program(possibly customized) to print out the paychecks. A smaller company may have a person on staff to handle bookkeeping, accounting, and payroll or they may hire an accounting firm or accountant. By hiring an accountant, you can get the professional services you need without some of the overhead (no benefits, no social security, no office space). You just pay the fee they require.
Another option is to purchase one of the many software products that are out there today that are designed to help the small business owner with a variety of accounting needs. You can create invoices, keep track of inventory, create payroll and paychecks, keep track of purchases, write checks, and find all kinds of reports that will help you with your business and its growth.
