About Us


Based in Northwest Indiana, Absolute Wages’ payroll processing focuses on businesses with 50 or less employees.  The company was founded in 2007 by Tom and Amy Petri, experienced accountants and owners of Petri Financial Services. As small business owners, Tom and Amy found the need for affordable payroll processing and were often approached by their tax and bookkeeping clients to offer payroll-processing services.

As a result of such demand, the Petris formed Absolute Wages and have worked with a wide variety of small business clients throughout Northwest Indiana. In fact, Absolute Wages has maintained a 92% client retention rate since its inception seven years ago attributed to the company’s dedication to personalized customer service.
