Paycheck stub sample templates provide users with a consistent format for presenting their pay information, and while some businesses accept written stubs for income verification, more often than not a professional payroll stub is required. Today, most businesses provide their employees with paystubs with each payment that is made, however, freelance and self-employed workers often do not have this luxury. For some, finding a paycheck stub template to produce acceptable paystubs is their only option. This article presents a brief list of options for those looking to create professional stubs.

Users that are looking to simply enter the necessary components of their employer and salary information and print out a stub may find online websites to be their best value. The benefit of this option is that there is no software to download, and they are usually affordable enough to be used when needed without breaking the bank.
Employers and those that have to print out multiple pay stubs can use one of many software companies that provide this service. The cost of this software varies based on the features included, and you should be sure to check that the software is both compatible with your computer and that it will meet all of your stub needs. For example, be sure to make sure that state wage rates are updated to reflect current values. The downsides of this option are that unless you are doing lots of pay stubs, it could be a bad investment, and of course the danger of downloading and installing software on your machine. Only buy from a reputable dealer.

There are also templates available on sites like DocStoc.com and SampleStubs.com. As always, be sure to use a trusted source before downloading any templates.
As the need for professional stub templates increases, so too will their availability online. These three options provide a great starting point for anyone who needs a stub generated quickly. The print and click users are benefited with the instant paystub, while the template and software users benefit from that ability to reproduce stubs whenever needed. It is our hope that this article helps you choose the right option for your situation.
