We are small, and as such, rarely in the eye of a payroll services company. Axcet works with our multiple entities. I want to focus on our business, and they focus on HR for me. Because we are small, I really don't want to have a 'personal' disagreement about PTO or vacation pay, so I set the guidelines, and Axcet manages them, which I love.

Turning our admin, payroll, benefits, 401K, workers' compensation, etc., over to Axcet HR has been one of the best decisions that we've ever made: that was back in 2001! We've had 21 great years with Axcet and hope to have 21 more! Axcet has saved us time and LOTS of money but most of all, Axcet HR has allowed us to focus on running our business...because we know, day in, and day out that Axcet has our back!

CEO, a Kansas City Non-profit

We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not there, so we came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help. 

Lisa C.

VP of Finance, Kansas City Financial Institution

We started working with Axcet in 2018 and they have dramatically increased our internal productivity. We used to spend hours on payroll, HR, benefits, taxes, etc. each week and that is no longer the case. Prior to Axcet, we worked with two other payroll companies and is was a complete mess. Working with Axcet is like having a robust and efficient internal HR department. They have solutions to every problem and we no longer feel lost trying to navigate the payroll landscape. If you want to streamline your business and get out of the HR and payroll weeds, then go with Axcet.

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.

I am very impressed with these guys, especially Kelly. I was in need of urgent assistance regarding my W2s from a job and got service and help that day. You know someone cares when even though they got nothing for helping me, they gave A1 service like I was any current client. True HR! Thanks Kelly!

I have found that I have a problem with the computer program in part because I have macular degeneration in both eyes and double vision in my right eye. It is frustrating that I am asked to rate this program before I even get logged in.
