Is free payroll right for me?

Rise is proud to support small business in Canada with our payroll service, absolutely free. Before you get started, find out if free payroll is right for you:

  • I have 20 employees or less

    Great, that means you’re eligible for free payroll! If you have 20 employees or more, find out how to get started with our online payroll business solution.

  • I need more than a free payroll calculator

    A free payroll calculator can be helpful, but if you want to minimize manual data entry and ensure greater accuracy, Rise free payroll is the best solution for you.

  • I need to spend less time processing payroll

    Our easy-to-use online system saves you tons of time and makes your life easier by automating your T4s, CRA remittances and ROEs so you don’t have to!
