Payroll and tax administration doesn't have to be so challenging.
Here are a few questions we get asked for those interested in learning more about outsourcing your payroll and tax admin to certified* pros.
What Are Payroll Services?
Payroll services are a business solution that ensure your employees receive the pay they have earned. If your business has W-2 employees, then the IRS requires you to pay them through payroll so it can confirm your company and your workers are paying taxes. When your employees are paid accurately and on time, they feel valued, and you have one less thing to worry about.
Almost all small businesses can benefit from outsourcing payroll to a certified professional employer organization (CPEO) like Axcet. Yes, it can feel scary to outsource. The truth, though, is that continuing hands-on management of payroll processing, especially as your employee headcount increases, can take your attention away from growing your business.
With Axcet, you’ll have a trusted, reliable, knowledgeable payroll services partner who has your back every step of the way.
Clients that utilize Axcet’s services provide employee hours or salary amounts and approve their payroll online. That’s it. Axcet handles every other step to getting payroll out the door quickly and correctly.
Benefits of Outsourcing to a Payroll Company
By choosing Axcet as your full-service payroll provider, your company also gets assistance with employee time and attendance tracking, work location tracking for payroll and taxes and payroll tax administration services.
Companies that outsource to us are insulated from penalties because, as a CPEO, Axcet is solely liable for the federal employment taxes on wages paid to clients’ employees.
Payroll outsourcing allows you more time to focus on managing your core business. When you work with Axcet, you can count on your payroll and state and federal taxes to be done correctly, on time and to your specifications. Our team of experienced payroll administrators will take this worry off your desk.
A payroll outsourcing company like Axcet will process your payroll by gathering your employees’ information (hire date, job title and pay rate), obtaining any timecard data, calculating the pay due to each employee and then paying that amount by issuing a direct deposit or payroll check. Pay also can be issued through a reloadable debit card (pay card) for employees who don’t have bank accounts.
Outsourcing payroll to Axcet, a certified PEO, ensures that payroll will be calculated correctly and employees will be paid on time, every time. Axcet can manage your ongoing payroll as well as start-to-finish payroll basics, from new-hire forms to year-end tax documentation such as W-2s. All you have to do is provide the data and approve your payroll online. Besides time saved, you never have to worry about legal compliance. Your PEO team stays up to date on changing regulations and keeps you in the loop.
Yes, one of the most common reasons to outsource payroll (after saving time and resources) is to assure taxes are submitted in compliance with the law. As an outsourced payroll processing company, Axcet will handle all state and federal tax contributions compliantly, accurately and on time. Axcet also will distribute end-of-the-year W-2 forms to your employees. See more information about tax administration.
