However your clients choose to handle payroll, it’s important that the process is simple and organized. It shouldn’t take too much time or cause too much stress.
Yet there seems to be a lot to keep track of:
• Tracking employee time and time clock integration
• Entering payroll
• Preparing payroll tax payments and tax filings
• Delivering pay stubs
• Printing checks or setting up direct deposit
• Preparing payroll reports
• Accounting G/L reporting
How do your clients keep it all in order? One way is to keep meticulous records and be hyper vigilant about changes in the law. This isn’t always that easy for small business owners, though. There’s a lot on their plates.
To simplify, consider a payroll service that does it all for them. Everything should be online, well organized and available 24/7. If your client’s payroll isn’t simple and organized, make sure you let them know they can do better.
