Learn the ins and outs of pay frequencies

Choosing a pay schedule is one of the first things you must do when you have employees. Before you can actually run a payroll, you need to decide how often you pay employees and withhold taxes. You can choose between weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, and monthly pay schedules. 

There’s a lot more that goes into deciding on a pay frequency than picking one out of a hat. You must comply with federal and state regulations, consider your business’s cash flow, and be consistent. But don’t worry — you can use our guide to learn what exactly is a payroll schedule, frequency laws, tips for choosing the right schedule, and more.
