What clients are saying about the team at Paper Trails

We love Paper Trails! Such speedy and personalized service, and everyone who works there is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. We switched to a large national payroll company for one year, and it was the worst decision. As soon as that year was up, we RAN back to Paper Trails. Look no further!!

I couldn't run my business without Paper Trails. They're so much more than a payroll and bookkeeping company; Teresa, Chris and the rest of the team keep me sane and on track so I can focus on running my business.
