What You Need to Know

Payroll Deadlines


Payroll Processing Cutoff Time:
The deadline for submitting payroll is 12pm EST two business days prior to pay day. For example, payroll must be submitted no later than noon on Wednesday for Friday pay day. Payrolls submitted after this deadline will be pushed to the next business day.

Payroll Debit:
Paper Trails will debit the full amount of your payroll, including all wages and taxes, from your business checking account one business day before pay day. For example, if your pay day is Friday, funds will be withdrawn from your account on Thursday morning. When you submit payroll to us, please ensure that funds are available in your account to avoid bounce fees and employee direct deposit issues!

The most rewarding way you can help yourself have a great experience with Paper Trails is to make an investment in educating yourself on how to best utilize isolved. We have great online training in the isolved University.

The University has great 10-15 minute classes on every aspect of the system. In addition to classes, there are help articles with step-by-step instructions on how to perform the tasks you want.

There are 2 ways to access the University:

  1. Once you have your isolved login, click your name in the top left corner > click “University” > You may need to sign up the first time; each subsequent time you log in you will not need your login.
  2. Visit and sign in.
