Not all hero’s wear capes and the people who work here are IT! I have done business with Southern Payroll for several years now and have nothing but fine things to say about the different teams here.

I believe we have used every service SPB has to offer. We have used them for Payroll, Taxes, Bookkeeping and general HR questions. I truly believe our small business would not be in a compliant status without them! Jennifer helped us with our payroll although the entire team was there to quickly answer any questions we had at the last minute. Amy did our bookkeeping and was always open to any changes we needed and got back to us within a day of when we reached out. Debbie with the tax team got us the largest tax return we have ever seen and was a joy to work with!!!!! George personally answers any questions we have really fast even when we tell him he doesn't need to look into it till later because it is 7:00 pm on a Friday night. GREAT Company. Amazing People. Very Helpful, Professional, and Friendly.
