What is PEPM Pricing?

Traditionally, payroll has been billed with a flat fee and an additional charge for every check or disbursement. Our Per Employee Per Month (PEPM) pricing means that you can pay your employees more frequently—to keep them happy in today’s gig economy and changing marketplace that emphasizes getting paid fast. Our platform will allow you to switch from bi-weekly to weekly (or more often) payroll for the same low price.

Employee Retention Credit

You may be eligible for thousands of dollars per employee. Beyond’s Payroll Solution can help you receive the ERC by: 

  • Calculating the credits you qualify for and automatically apply them to your tax liabilities.
  • Tracking accumulative credits on your dashboard.
  • Applying to have your balance refunded to your bank account if your credits are larger than your liabilities
