The last thing on a business executive’s mind should be how to accurately pay their employees. Trying to crunch the numbers and use tiresome tax tables can be tedious and ineffective. Many different factors are involved including Federal and State tax, Social Security and Medicare taxes.

Symmetry Software calculates employee’s paycheck while ensuring the precision of the company’s taxes, allowing the employees to monitor their paycheck themselves.
