Payroll Accounting Software

Pay employees and manage taxes

Cougar Mountain Software has provided in-house payroll solutions for over 30 years. Whether you have one employee or 1,000, our Payroll module provides everything your company needs to pay employees, manage taxes, and support any number of standard or unique deductions. You will also have peace of mind knowing you are compliant with the latest regulatory changes.

Whatever pay method you use Payroll handles them all and easily handles multiple pay rates for each employee. It automatically calculates all taxes, benefits, and deductions. It even handles employees that work in multiple states.

Cougar Mountain is completely modularized and you buy only the modules that your business needs. There are 9 accounting modules to choose from. For instance, add Payroll if you wish to cut your own payroll and taxes, or include Inventory if you have to track stock.

With Payroll, you can:

  • Define hourly, salary, or hourly/salary combined compensation types.
  • Generate W-2s and 1099s, with the option to use Aatrix to submit electronic W-2s.
  • Set up any standard deductions and garnishments.
  • Pay employees that work in multiple states.
  • Shelter all or partial earnings, benefits, and deductions from taxes for items such as 401(k), cafeteria plans, or sheltered medical accounts.
  • Pay employees electronically with direct deposit.
  • Maintain payroll history after closing the year and print reports from history.
  • Integrate to General Ledger and automatically post payroll expenses.
