From wages and direct deposits to benefits and overtime calculations, navigating your payroll’s moving parts is cumbersome.
Akin to payroll are taxes. In the United States, there are more than 15,000 tax codes. They change frequently… Keeping ongoing tabs of the ones affecting you is admittedly grueling.
Help for both processes is a cloud-based system away.
Today, top automated payroll systems detect over 250 common errors in the pre-processing stage, saving you both time and resources. You have access to over 450 standard reports and multiple report writers – both analytical and ad hoc – keeping vital information at your fingertips. It also spares regulatory woes: industry averages peg a third of US businesses are fined for incorrect payroll processing each year.
They also provide availability of distributing, filing and tax reporting with ease. No matter your company’s size, these systems have you covered on all tax jurisdictions—whether it’s federal, state or city, they encompass them all.
The American Payroll Association (APA) estimates that automation reduces payroll processing costs by as much as 80 percent annually, adding further to your ongoing savings.
