Toast Payroll Benefits


The main benefits of Toast Payroll are automated time tracking, automatic tip distribution, compliance risk and tax management, and centralized dashboard. Here are more details on Toast Payroll’s benefits:

Automated Time Tracking

Toast Payroll has an automated time tracking feature that calculates how much time at work your employee spent. It is also capable of calculating shift swaps, overtime shifts, and paid leaves. This enables you to make on-time and accurate payments.

Automatic Tip Distribution

Tip distribution is automatic when a customer uses a credit or debit card, and this eliminates the need to manually input tips at the end of every shift. When customers give cash tips, these will be added in the “Declared Tips” section of Toast POS. For transparency, all these calculations will appear in employees’ timesheets.

Centralized Dashboard

Toast Payroll has a centralized dashboard with a clean user interface where you can see all the data you the app has recorded. You can also lookup employee profiles whenever you need them. You will also be able to find general announcements, upcoming events that your restaurant has, and tasks that need to be done. The app also generates custom reports that managers can use to gain insights on their team’s performance and find areas to improve on. There is a Quick Links button that makes it faster to navigate the app. The login page allows your managers to check the dashboard with their own usernames and unique 4-digit pin.

Compliance Risk and Tax Management

Toast Payroll helps you with compliance risk management to ensure that you are abiding by the ever-changing compliance regulations. This protects your businesses from financially costly and time-consuming consequences. Toast allows you to configure state and federal tax rates so that it can make automatic tax calculations.
