I don`t believe you need a payroll processing company at this early stage. Your bookkeeper or accounting (I would think you could find one in the same in your area) should be able to handle your payroll for you. Is this employee to be full or part-time?
Stay current on your taxes - many a small business falls behind on taxes early and if you do, if will come back to haunt you. In my state (GA), filing tax reports can be done online, too. Look into this. And even though you may have someone doing your books, keep an eye on them and the books - once again, this relationship can get you into trouble, too, if the person is not on the up and up - stay vigilant.
I hope you are paying yourself, too. Always pay yourself first. And look into the many different plans where you can divert pre-tax money into a retirement fund. You may not think this is important right now, but every little bit helps - set this up in the beginning - even if it is only $10 a month - it adds up as your company grows - and the less you give Uncle Sam, the better - IMHO. Talk to your accountant. And these plans have rules - such as all employees (full time) have to be treated the same in the plans - you usually can`t have a better one for owners versus employees.
Glad to hear you are growing. How did you make out with your exclusive contracts with your distributors?
Take care - R@
