AME Payroll is a low on features, but affordable and user-friendly payroll solution equipped with basic payroll features like automated taxes and vacation tracking. AME Payroll does not, however, offer multiple state taxes, automatic payrolls and payments, the ability to calculate multiple pay rates, or an employee self-service portal.

For a one-time payment of $125.00, AME Payroll offers preparation of W-2s and 1099s, flexible payment schedules, multiple pay schedules, and integrated pre-tax benefits ad more.

However, for more common payroll features such as built-in timesheets, reimbursements, paperless employee onboarding, and an employee database, users can turn to Gusto and Zenefits.

With its one-time payment of $125.00, AME is very affordable compared to software like Gusto and Zenefits, which start off at $39.00 + $6.00 /employee /mo. and $10.00 /employee /mo., respectively.

AME Payroll is an inexpensive payroll option, as long as users do not mind the limited features.
