Coastal Human Resource Group Review

Coastal Human Resource Group offers online payroll services and lets you pay your employees by direct deposit or check. Each employee is allowed up to four direct deposit accounts for their payroll each pay period. If your employees choose the check route, Coastal HR has them printed at a local bank in your area and delivers them to your business on payday.

You have access to a variety of different payroll reports online and can have them customized to fit your company. Your online access allows you to manage all payroll information, and employees can view current payroll information and print copies of their W-2 forms. You can also track costs by your employees, jobs, departments, and divisions.

This payroll service has the ability to track sick, vacation, and personal time right on your employees’ pay stubs, a feature that impressed us. Coastal Human Resource Group also offers a time clock system for your employees.

If you want your payroll tax filings and payments made automatically for you, this online payroll solution handles it all. It also takes complete responsibility for your payroll tax deposits to federal, state, and local governments.

This payroll service company also handles your end-of-year W-2 and 1099 printing and processing for an additional fee. To make sure you remain in complete compliance, you can have it do your new employee reporting also.

In the event you need any help or support regarding your payroll, Coastal HR is only available via phone and email. However, it assigns you a specific payroll clerk whom you can contact for help. We were disappointed to find no FAQs for reference or tutorials on the company website.


Coastal Human Resource Group isn’t singly dedicated to online payroll. It also offers help with human resources, employee benefits, and business insurance. Its online help and support are a bit lacking, though, and it charges an additional fee for W-2 processing. However, its payroll solution is still decent and a good fit for small businesses.
