Easy Stubs

The “Why” Behind OneTwoPay

Every company has its “why,” either a passion project, a spotted need, or a combination of the two. For us, the idea for OneTwoPay emerged when our founder was seeking a solution to create pay stubs for an employee. It is the responsibility of an employer, contract or otherwise, to provide their employees with pay stubs. Aware of this, our founder sought a simple and cost-effective solution online. He was met with complex software that offered full-service accounting solutions or clunky alternatives that didn’t offer the bare minimum for pay stub creation. Faced with a choice to manually create pay stubs or pay an unbelievable amount for a full-service accounting solution, our founder selected a third option: create OneTwoPay.

Financial Independence

The problem? Other payroll solutions are too expensive and complicated because they include more functionality than small businesses require. The solution? OneTwoPay’s cloud-based payroll service allows small businesses, accountants for small businesses, and self-employed individuals to easily create pay stubs, store employee data, enjoy automatic calculations, generate T4 reports, download remittance summaries, and do exactly what they need to get accurate, reliable, pay stubs in Canada.

OneTwoPay is a simple and affordable pay stub generator. We give you everything you need and nothing that you don’t, with a price to match. Our customer support is human-powered. No robots allowed. We’re uncomplicated, inside and out.

How To Get Pay Stubs: How It Works

So, how does it work? Good question. First and foremost, you’ll select the type of membership that suits your needs. We offer pay stub packs and monthly or annual memberships. The benefits of membership include unlimited pay stubs per employee, unlimited backdated pay stubs, saved employee information for added efficiency, and a complete history of pay statements. For anyone who is regularly creating pay stubs for multiple employees, monthly or annual memberships are often the most affordable option. We also provide a tool you can use to make sure you are using the most cost-effective option for your particular situation.

Pay stub packs allow flexibility for those who will be creating pay stubs less often or sporadically. You can buy any amount, starting at a single pay stub, and the packs become more affordable the more you buy. You can start the process of creating your first pay stub before you decide on how you’d like to pay and pay at the end, or you can get your membership, make your account, and get started. Either way, it’s just a couple of quick clicks.

Next, you’ll enter the more specific payment information, such as if it’s fixed or hourly, the income amount, and other income types like overtime, bonus, vacation, etc. During this part, you’ll also enter in the “year-to-date” income and deductions. If you have questions along the way, you can click the question mark bubbles next to the fields for some helpful information. Alternatively, you can always reach out to our support team via live chat or phone call.

Once you’ve entered all of the necessary information, you can move on to the next and final step. This is where you review your pay stub, edit any information you’ve entered incorrectly, upload your logo if you wish, and double-check the calculations, which you can override if you like.

Take a scan of your pay stub and your remittance summary, make sure everything checks out and hit the “finalize pay stub” button at the top. That’s it! If you haven’t yet, you can choose your membership type and payment method. Otherwise, you can download or get your pay stub via email.

What Is A Pay Stub?

We’ve spent all this time explaining our system, but you might have some preliminary questions, such as “what is a pay stub, anyway?” Not to worry, we’ve got you covered. A pay stub is a record that is given to an employee with each paycheck or pay period to show the amount of money they earned and the amount that was deducted. It’s a record of wages, taxes, contributions, and deductions to help employees understand their paychecks, keep a record of their earnings, and ensure everything is as expected. From hours worked to money earned, these are important and mandatory records for employees to receive for the purpose of transparency, understanding, and record keeping. While pay stubs can look different from one another, they should all contain the same information. Understanding your pay stub can be tricky, as there are a lot of numbers and acronyms, but once you familiarize yourself with the various fields, you’ll get used to it in no time.

Financial Independence

Why Do I Need A Pay Stub?

For both Canadian employees and employers, pay stubs serve as crucial documents that go beyond just indicating how much one has been paid. They play a pivotal role in various aspects of financial life.

Employees often find themselves needing proof of income for a multitude of purposes, such as securing loans, submitting rental applications, or meeting requirements for numerous financial transactions. A pay stub serves as a tangible record, offering evidence of income earned and deductions made, making it an invaluable asset in such situations.

Employers, on the other hand, benefit from maintaining pay stub records as part of their diligent record-keeping practices. These documents not only help ensure transparency in payroll management but also serve as vital tools during tax time. While pay stubs may not be mandatory for tax filing, they act as supporting documents that can be invaluable in the event of a review or audit by tax authorities.

In essence, holding onto pay stubs is a wise practice for both employees and employers. Having them readily available can save considerable time and effort when the need to present them arises, eliminating the hassle of requesting past records from previous employers or attempting to recreate them for prior periods or employees. It's a simple yet effective way to ensure financial peace of mind and compliance with various financial and regulatory requirements.

The Best Canadian Pay Stub Generator: Why We’re Your Best Option

So, now you know a bit more about OneTwoPay, what we do, and why it’s important. But, you might be wondering what sets us apart from competitors. First and foremost, simplicity. It’s tricky to find accounting software that doesn’t offer a full suite of accounting services like invoicing, bookkeeping, payment solutions, etc. While this type of software can be really helpful for larger companies, it can overcomplicate things for small businesses, offering tools that they don’t need and will not use and adding extra steps to the tools they do need. While more functionality isn’t always a problem, the price tag that comes with it sure can be. Many businesses opt to do pay stubs manually with spreadsheets instead of forking over the money for accounting software. While that’s certainly a more affordable option, it’s time-consuming and far too vulnerable to errors.

OneTwoPay exists as the perfect middle-ground solution. It offers affordability and simplicity so you can say goodbye to human error and manual procedures without fully reinventing your back-of-office procedures. Our price points really set us apart from the rest, too. Offering affordable memberships and pay-as-you-go options so you don’t have to pay for anything you aren’t using.

Other key qualities include our accurate, CRA-driven calculations, so you have peace of mind and don’t have to worry about pulling out that calculator—finally, our human-to-human service. Serving mainly small businesses, we know that relationships matter to you, and that’s why they matter so much to us, too. When you start a live chat or phone call with our support team, you will be connected with a human every time. We’re here to provide individualized support and make this process as easy and positive as can be.
