Payroll & HR Services Tailored To Your Needs

Get payroll and HR guidance and execution at a fractional cost


It’s easy to take for granted, but there’s probably no function that your team counts on more fundamentally than payroll. It may seem like a simple job, but managing payroll and benefits administration can quickly become time-consuming and burdensome. It’s not that you have more important things to do with your time, but chances are good you have better things to do with your time, especially if you’re working on growing your company.



An inevitable byproduct of growth is that your human resources needs become significantly more complex as you expand your team, and with a more diverse and complex workforce, it’s not always clear what’s required of you as an employer or what the best path forward is. Making the wrong decision — even with the best of intentions — can expose your company to legal and regulatory penalties and undermine the happiness and productivity of your team.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Aman Advani

Co-Founder and CEO

“We hired the SmartBooks HR team with a simple, tactical ask – to manage our HR functions, paperwork, payroll, and the like. But after nearly five years with the team, they’ve gone far beyond that – truly a part of the team, deeply integrated into our wider strategy and one-off challenges.”

Lisa A. Caldwell-Meeks

“Preparing my 50-page employee handbook and the list of employment forms for new hires (also specific to California) was a daunting task. SmartBook’s Client HR and Payroll Manager, Rebecca Gordon, was a godsend!”
