Payroll and workforce management solutions franchise supports local small businesses as a community boutique-style payroll services company.


LITTLETON, COLORADO, December 2, 2021 Payroll Vault is a boutique-style local full-service payroll and workforce management company that designs payroll for small businesses. It launched as a separate payroll service in 2008, then emerged as a franchise in 2012. With continued, steady growth and industry recognition nationwide, Payroll Vault welcomes the Richmond, Virginia office with enthusiasm. 

Deanna Trent, Owner, brings extensive experience in payroll and HR services, including an MBA in Human Resources. Having been in the industry for over 21 years and in a client-facing role, she also brings amazing consulting and exemplary customer service skills.

Trent sheds light on her leap to Payroll Vault, “I was ready to transition from my current job, but all I knew is that I love payroll and providing businesses with options to run their organization more efficiently. I stumbled onto Payroll Vault while exploring the AARP website where I stumbled upon the article 15 Affordable Franchises You Can Start in Your 50s. I thought to myself, this has to be a sign.” 

Payroll Vault’s key drivers are founded on two major components – helping every local business across the nation thrive and be the best they can be and ensuring that each franchise office is setup for success in their local market. Payroll continues to be ranked among the topmost outsourced professional services due to the industry’s growing complexity. 

Trent continues, “I love what I do, and I get to own my own payroll company. How cool and perfect is that? You have that moment in life when you know the time is right to step out on faith. So, I explored the opportunities and here I am.”

“We are thankful every day to see our Payroll Vault family growing,” stated Sean Manning, Payroll Vault CEO/Founder. “Each office brings a different skillset and passion for payroll and helping their local business community grow. As the workplace continues to evolve, we hope to continue to re-define payroll and be the source of help and guidance that every business owner deserves.” 

Payroll Vault continues to reveal a sincere dedication to assisting small businesses across the nation to navigate the tedious legislative and compliance changes so they can ensure they and their staff are taking advantage of recovery opportunities. This is especially evident in the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC), American Rescue Plan, Payroll Protection Plan, Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), and other Recovery Program support that has been needed and provided. Without a doubt, the boutique-style payroll and workforce management solutions company will continue paving the way for small business success on a big scale.
