About Us

Payroll On A Budget specializes in paperless, online payroll services exclusively for businesses with one to 10 employees and operations limited to a single state. By focusing our extensive resources and expertise on the needs of our small-business clients, we offer an affordable, high-quality payroll service.

In addition to personal customer care with each interaction, every client benefits from the expertise of our founder and in-house Certified Public Accountant, Charles Read, when needed. A former Marine and CPA, Charles has built and leads Payroll On A Budget with the precision you would expect for payroll done right the first time, every time.

While we’re known for our accuracy, there are times when a taxing authority or former payroll company makes a mistake and you need to communicate with the IRS or other taxing authority to clear up the matter. Payroll On A Budget offers our clients a unique service in that Charles, as a CPA, as well as other CPAs on staff are able to advocate for you and represent you to the taxing authorities when needed. He’s passionate about ensuring the proper taxes are paid – no more, no less.

We are proud of our over 93 percent client-retention rate and “A+” rating from the Better Business Bureau and are grateful for the loyalty of the hundreds of clients we have had the pleasure of working with over the years.

By providing our service online and eliminating paper from our clients’ payroll process, we offer a green payroll service that upholds one of our company’s founding principles: In everything we do, we are sensitive to our organization’s impact on our planet’s finite natural resources. We continue to pioneer fully secure, 100 percent paperless payroll solutions that promote and complement environmental best practices.

Located in Lewisville, Texas, Payroll On A Budget is part of Custom Payroll Associates, inc. (CPAi), which is a full service, bonded payroll services and companion HR services company serving businesses of all sizes as well as across multiple states since 1991. We currently serve payroll clients in more than 42 states and territories and operate as one of the top 10% in size of independent payroll processors in the country.
