Proud of the Company We Keep

Founded in 2007, PayNorthwest is privately owned and headquartered in Seattle, the heart of the Puget Sound region in the Pacific Northwest. From the beginning, we have sought to be “the third way” – more capable than the small local payroll service provider, more caring than the big box national providers. We combine deep expertise in our platform with the ability to listen and understand your unique requirements and circumstances. We have worked with more than 1,000 clients across the United States and Canada and our consistent growth and high client retention is a testament to the trust our clients put in us every day.

No company can do everything alone. We are proud of our important business partners that help us bring unique and lasting value to our clients. We also seek out vendor partners who align with our values of creating greater diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.

Significant partners for us include include Kronos (now UKG), a global leader in workforce management, MasterTax, a payroll tax payment management software company, Everything Benefits, a benefits technology company, and Atlantic Capital Bank, our payment processing bank.

We also partner with industry associations and those with allied expertise in service of our clients. A representative list of our partners include:

  • The Society for Human Resource Management
  • Independent Payroll Processors Association
  • Washington Bankers Association
  • Washington Health Care Association
  • Leading Age (Washington & Oregon)
  • Northwest Association of Independent Schools
  • Associated Industries
