All-in-one payroll service

We do all the heavy lifting for one low monthly price. With over 30 years of experience, we have a great handle on farm payroll — and if anything ever goes wrong, we’ll head out into the weeds (talk to the IRS) to fix it for you.

  • We guarantee the accuracy of all tax filings and payments

Perfect for agricultural businesses

We know payroll is different for farms and ranches, so we’ve developed the tools you need to get it right. You have special tax requirements, so we file form 943 for you automatically. You have seasonal workers who come and go, so we only charge you for active workers. We can also process minimum wage rates for agricultural workers, make payments to debit cards, and we allow workers who have moved away to access their W-2 and 1099 forms online.

We help with HR and compliance, too

New hire onboarding and state reporting

We’ll save you time by having new hires enter their own information, and we’ll report them to the state for you. You can even store employment contracts and other documents in our secure vault.

Ag-specific Workers’ Comp

Keep everyone safe and protect yourself from liability by adding on workers comp insurance. Once you set it up, your rates will adjust automatically whenever workers join or leave your payroll.

Integrated benefits plans

We’re a licensed insurance broker in all 50 states, so we can offer expert help with health benefits, too. Or add on a fully integrated 401(k) plan to make sure your farm’s payroll helps employees save for the future.

Loved by small businesses. Respected by experts.

"OnPay was very easy to setup and their customer service has been quick to help with questions and a few customization needs. The interface is clean and easy to use, so much so that I get nervous I have forgotten something. It just can't be this easy to run payroll!"
