Axcet, trusted for PEO services in Missouri, trains managers and supervisors to build stronger, more harmonious teams and effectively coach, motivate and discipline employees.

HR Compliance

Small business owners in Missouri and nationwide have lost sleep at one point or another over the labyrinth of federal, state and local labor laws they must follow.

Unless you’re an HR expert, it’s highly unlikely you understand all the legal requirements associated with employing workers – which is precisely why smart small businesses rely on Missouri PEO services from Axcet to stay compliant.

We monitor constantly changing HR regulations and check required tasks off our clients’ to-do lists, including:

  • EEO-1 reporting;
  • FMLA administration;
  • ADAA and Title VII compliance; and
  • State and federal postings.

Unemployment Claims

Missouri small and mid-sized business owners often do not know they have only 10 days to respond to the state with eligibility information when a former employee files an initial unemployment insurance claim. If they don’t meet that deadline, the law automatically grants the requested benefits. Smaller Missouri businesses that partner with Axcet don’t have to navigate complex unemployment claims. We handle these responses and ensure our clients do not pay illegitimate claims that could ultimately translate to higher unemployment taxes.

Let’s start a conversation about how Axcet can save you time, money, hassle and resources, so you can focus on mission-critical functions that lead to business growth in Missouri.

Is a PEO right for your small to medium business?

By outsourcing tedious tasks like payroll, benefits, risk management, and human resources to a PEO, small and medium-sized business owners can free up valuable time and experience many more great benefits.

Employee Benefits

Good health insurance has always topped the list of benefits employees want most. The COVID-19 pandemic amplified that desire. But the process of finding the best options and administering plans can be daunting – especially for small businesses that may not have the time, expertise or budget to choose plans that meet their employees’ needs and expectations. That’s where Axcet comes in. We do all the legwork for you, leveraging economies of scale so you can afford Fortune 500-level health benefits for your Missouri small business. We tap our deep market knowledge and industry experience to help you implement options that will attract and retain top-tier talent.

Health Insurance

The right small business health insurance for your Missouri company is well-perceived by your employees and comes in at or under budget.

Axcet brings the health insurance market to you, working directly with insurance providers to review and recommend options that meet your financial and employee wellness goals.

We give small business owners access to higher-quality benefits than they could offer on their own, including health, life and disability insurance, dental and vision, employee assistance plans and pre- and post-tax health savings accounts.

Benefits Administration and Compliance

Employee benefits administration and compliance require the kind of specialized expertise that Axcet offers Missouri small business owners. We make the administration of health benefits for small businesses a seamless process by handling plan design, employee communications and enrollment, vendor payments, claims assistance and annual renewals. We also take on the time-consuming responsibility of ensuring our client companies comply with complex regulatory requirements.


A December 2020 J.P. Morgan survey found that fewer than half of small business owners offer employee retirement plans, even though a 401(k) plan generally is considered a key component of a competitive benefits package. These plans can be expensive and difficult to manage on your own. Axcet eliminates setup costs and related administrative tasks. And, our extensive roster of investment options means you’re sure to find a plan that helps you help your employees prepare for financially secure futures.

Payroll Services in Missouri

Missouri Certified PEO - Kansas City Plaza RooftopsOf all the recurring items on small business owners’ to-do lists, payroll is perhaps the most important. You have to get it right every time or risk frustrating your employees and potentially paying penalties for legal non-compliance. Calculating deductions and overtime, managing minimum wage regulations, reporting tax withholdings and making sure your employees are paid exactly what they earned is complicated and time-consuming, and there’s no room for error. With Axcet’s Missouri payroll services, you can be sure all of that will happen seamlessly – every single pay period.

Payroll Administration

We take on the tedium of administering payroll so you don’t have to. Our payroll specialists have extensive training, industry experience and professional credentials, assuring you that we will always accurately administer payroll. Besides the basics – like tracking the number of hours employees work and distributing paychecks – Axcet’s Missouri payroll services include handling additional needs your small business may have, such as figuring and paying commissions and bonuses, determining whether or not employees are exempt and processing contractor payments.

Payroll Tax Administration

Federal and Missouri payroll tax laws, coupled with laws specific to the cities where businesses operate, further complicate the process of paying employees. Those regulations are ever-changing, sometimes even adjusting retroactively. Axcet tracks these fluctuations in real time to ensure we file every tax form correctly – on time, every time. As an IRS-certified PEO (CPEO), Axcet assumes fiduciary responsibility for payroll tax administration on behalf of our clients, providing another layer of protection against late-payment penalties.

Then we develop policies and procedures to address those areas and help your small or mid-sized company maintain a safer workplace.
