What Our Customers Say

I thought I could handle doing payroll on Quickbooks with just one employee but as a business owner with a ton of other duties, there’s so many things you have to do on your own that the IRS just doesn’t make a manual for. It costs me $15-$20 more per month to use them but I am stress free in 2018 when it comes to taxes and its totally worth it.
Dave Williams
I own a flooring company in SC and GA and a restoration franchise in the Charleston area and Charleston Payroll handles all my payroll needs. They have been instrumental in my success. I can’t thank Alex enough for getting me onboard and Tonya for handling my weekly processing!
Jonathan Dunagan
Charleston Payroll is the definition of personal service. I have been in situations where I needed documents etc. in a pinch and they have come through every time. Their response time, efficiency and dedication was evident from day one. This is a company that is truly here to help you. Any business looking for payroll services will be well cared for by Charleston Payroll.
