What is NetSuite Payroll?
NetSuite’s SuitePeople Payroll is a full-service payroll solution for employees in the United States that automates payroll processes, including calculating gross-to-net earnings, withholding mandatory taxes, deducting benefits and scheduling and issuing payments. Payroll batch previews help HR spot variances before payroll is run to reduce errors. Real-time general ledger (GL) postings keep GL accounts up-to-date and in balance. Finance leaders can drill down from payroll summary costs in financial reports to individual paychecks to gain insights and make more informed decisions.

NetSuite Payroll Benefits
NetSuite Payroll Features
Employees can set up direct deposits of their paychecks for up to 10 bank accounts and be paid with a check or have their earnings directly deposited into their accounts. And, employees can set up and edit their own bank account information for direct deposit.
Filing and Deposits
NetSuite automates deposits for federal, state and local taxes plus all quarterly and annual federal, state and local tax form filings. In addition to handling all tax filings and deposits, ACA forms 1095c and 1094c can be populated and provided to your employees. Prepare, print and file W-2 and 1099 MISC forms for employees and contractors at year’s end.
Flexible Payment Schedules
Pay hourly or salaried employees daily, weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, annually and more. Run off-cycle payrolls whenever the need arises.
Employee Self Service
Employees can securely view and change their own information to keep their records up-to-date. The ability to view as many as five previous paychecks and their W-4 information and expense reports mean questions get answered fast — without help from HR.
Include variable payments, like bonuses, commissions and other incentive compensation or expense payments, in paychecks. Flexible options allow you to include or exclude these variable payments in your payroll.
Dashboards and Reports
More than 100 standard reports and key performance indicators (KPIs) are included to customize, or build your own. Monitor payroll trends while comparing actual results to other periods. Dashboards break down payroll expenses by location, department or subsidiary. Authorized users can drill down from summary-level financial information, such as trial balance reports, to detailed payroll transactions for faster troubleshooting.
