BOWEN has been delivering contract payroll services for over two decades and we are a market leader in this space. With a 100% payment record and a team of certified payroll professionals, BOWEN has been a go-to provider for many major corporations who don’t want to manage the hassle and significant expense of on and off-boarding project-based talent.

Our thorough and extensive service also provides our clients with the confidence and security they need to manage peak work projects without having to overwhelm their own payroll team, or add additional staff members.

Our online and mobile timecard system is user-friendly and provides for a complete audit and tracking schedule of all payments. Our direct deposit service, contractor support and our reporting and systems make for a seamless onboarding process, and our customized pay cycles allow for multiple configurations and cost code management.
