Collapse of MyPayrollHR: What should I do?
As was widely reported online and in most business-related publications, the abrupt closing of the payroll giant processor, MyPayrollHR has left small businesses and their employees scrambling in a state of financial panic. And with good reason. MyPayrollHR and its parent company, Value Wise Corporation closed last Thursday (September 5, 2019) without any warning. It shut down its website and stopped returning phone calls. The company stated that it had over “5,000 companies as clients” as of this past summer. To say this has caused trouble for their former clients would be an understatement.
Why Choose AR Factoring For Your Business?
Accounts receivables (AR) are about as useful as a check you can’t cash out. Waiting to get your money is the name of the game in many industries, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. But why shouldn’t you get that money sooner? It’s your money after all!
Why Small Business Invoice Factoring Is The Right Choice
Bills are everyone’s worst nightmare. Especially when the money for those bills is MIA. It’s also an unfortunate truth for many small businesses—invoice payments often come in weeks or months later and it’s hard to keep up. But what are you going to do about the bills you have right now?

Four Reasons To Be Thankful For Payroll Factoring
What are you thankful for this year? People often think of their family, friends, and health. If you’re a business owner, there’s even more to be thankful for. This could include good employees, good customers, and a strong foundation. But we know it takes help and resources to create a successful business. Services such as payroll factoring help your business function and manage your concerns.
What Is Factoring?
Factoring is the buying and selling of unpaid invoices. As a business owner, you can sell your outstanding invoices to a factoring company. They’ll pay you up to 80% of the invoice value, and then the company is in charge of getting them paid. Once they are paid in full, they pay you the balance keeping a small fee for their services. When used for payroll, factoring pays your employees while you’re waiting for customers to pay you.
Why Use Factoring?
Staffing businesses and security guard companies especially can benefit from payroll factoring. Their product is people, and these people need paying at regular intervals. Unfortunately, clients hiring people often have invoice cycles that differ from paycheck schedules. For example, your customer may only process invoices on a monthly basis. But, your employees need paychecks every two weeks. Here's where factoring can come in!
Each business has different needs and thus different incentives to use factoring. But in general, there are so many reasons to be thankful for payroll factoring:
- Perfect Timing: As we described above, different businesses pay bills at different times. Since the biggest “bill” you likely have is your payroll, this can be frustrating! Payroll factoring makes this timing issue non-existent. You can pay your employees when they need to be paid, regardless of when your clients send their checks.
- Employees Stay Happy: They still get their money at the time they expect it—at no stress to you. Happy employees make excellent employees. Keep them happy—and retained—by using payroll factoring.
- Clients Stay Happy: Your customers have limitations on when they can process checks. Especially government. You can call your contact all you want, but it’s likely they can’t change their invoice cycles either. Keep them happy by not constantly checking in. With payroll factoring, they can pay you when they can, and you can keep a happy customer coming back.
- Other Expenses: Factoring can take care of your payroll, so you spend your money to grow your business. Spend it on equipment, marketing, or supplies. Instead of being held captive by payroll payments, you'll be free to invest it back in your business. When you see the results, you’ll be thankful you did.
