What Makes Us Different




We Don't Impound Your Funds

At Payroll Professionals, we don’t believe in impounding your funds. We ensure that you hold onto your assets until it's ready to be disbursed to your employees, agency, or tax department. This benefits you as a business owner by mitigating potential fraud and streamlines your payroll process.


 No Contracts

We never lock you into a contract. Our customer service combined with our ongoing enhancements to our services and software means that we can grow with you and your business. We will do everything in our power to make you a satisfied partner of ours.


We are not a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) or do ‘Employee Leasing'

While most payroll companies are PEO organizations, Payroll Professionals is not. We focus on being the best at what we do to provide you payroll processing and the tools necessary to keep your employees as your employees.

Belonging to a PEO can be costly and there is potential losing control of essential processes and people. Outside organizations influence your culture, diminishes value of your internal HR department, and open the door to risking a breach of sensitive employee information. 




Hi, I am Dan Thompson, the Founder of Payroll Professionals. I graduated in 1984 from Moorhead State with a degree in accounting and finance. I have been in the payroll aspect of that education since 1987. I love what we do and proud of the team we have built! Now retired, you will find me on the golf course, fishing or spending as much time as I can get with my grandson!

"We have been with Payroll Professionals for several years now. I'm very satisfied with the service they provide and I trust that my reports are going to be correct and in on time. They always respond to any of my questions in a timely manner, and I appreciate that. Also, their prices are so reasonable and haven't been raised since we've been with them. Great company and great people." - Melissa


Security of your company and employee information is of utmost importance to us.


When looking for a payroll partner, system security should be a top priority. We take the security of your data very seriously and put in numerous measures on the front and back end to ensure we catch potential risks before they become a problem. 


Your information is protected by protocols and commercial-grade sonic firewall systems that are monitored 24/7 to detect any virus or malware activity.

Your information is held on our server system that is physically protected in a secure location with UPS backup. This location requires key code entry and is monitored by video both externally and internally. Backup domain controllers are used for disaster recovery both onsite and in another undisclosed offsite location.

We use an external email scanner for all communication with our clients. Server event logs are monitored daily, monthly and quarterly by both internal resources and an outsourced team of network administration. All data is mirrored and encrypted offsite every thirty minutes which can be accessed immediately for any sort of disaster recovery.

We also test our processes and systems with an independent third party by conducting a SOC Audit and extensive penetration testing.

Our cloud-based system includes a two-factor security feature for logging in and a secure, verified, and automated registration/ forgot username/password system.
