While 2017 is the year of many things — for Wagepoint, it marks the debut of our downloadable payroll calendar for accountants, bookkeepers, small business owners, entrepreneurs, startups, human resource managers, people who like vibrant illustrations... you get the gist.

This convenient tool will help you get a better feel for how the fiscal payroll year flows. It will also help you keep track of key dates, such as public holidays when banks are closed and the days on which your payroll taxes are due.  And there are fun graphics for each month to help prove that payroll can be friendly, especially when we're by your side.
