Zenefits is offering free payroll for 12 months to all new small business customers with an annual subscription to any of their core HR software packages.

“As a partner to small businesses, we can’t do business as usual,” Zenefits CEO, Jay Fulcher, wrote in a company blog post announcing the program. “We don’t believe small businesses at this time should have to make the choice between paying for payroll and making their payroll.”

The program is significant for small businesses, which typically pay per employee for payroll software and then also pay per employee for HR software. The move by Zenefits effectively removes the cost for payroll software, which can range from hundreds to thousands a year depending on the size of business, while providing access to HR tools like hiring and onboarding, employee documentation, employee directories, organizational charts, and a native mobile app.

The company stated the offer was available for a limited period. Details on the free payroll promotion are available here.

The app is intended to help employers and employees manage stress. It was previously only available in the highest tier package from Zenefits.

The payroll and HR software provider also announced additional efforts it was providing to current customers including:
