What Should Payroll Services Include

January 31, 2019


Payroll services are a relief to business owners because they do all the work, like payroll calculating, processing and taking care of tax-related forms.

This frees you and your growing business from dealing with the challenges associated with confusing payroll responsibilities and keeping up-to-date with HR and tax compliance regulations.

Without these burdens, you can focus on what matters: expanding your business. And it gets better! The best payroll services offer packages that extend beyond simple payroll procedures.

Before we list the specific services that the most comprehensive payroll companies should take care of, ask yourself the following questions in order to find the perfect fit:

  1. Is the payroll company’s technology up-to-date?
  2. What can you expect from customer service?
  3. How will your business’ information be stored — and will it be safe?
  4. Does the company have other clients in your industry?

Here are additional services the best payroll companies should offer:

Payroll Processing and Reports

Payroll processing is your basic, level-one service. Payroll companies will calculate how much employees should be paid each pay period, and incorporate and maintain appropriate employee activities such as overtime, holiday pay, taxes, withholdings, Social Security, benefits, bonuses, state or city taxes, etc.

Plus, the company will provide in-depth wage and labor reports for the records of managers and business owners.

Payment Delivery

A comprehensive payroll company will make payments to employees in a variety of ways, depending on the employer-employee agreement.

Payroll will take care of direct deposit or printing paper checks. Then they’ll sign checks and place them in envelopes. Are you or one of your managers currently doing this? Imagine how much time you’ll both save!

Tax Filing

Do you hear the words “tax filing” and get an instant headache? That’s understandable. Thankfully, payroll companies should cover this task, too. What it means is that payroll will take care of the following responsibilities:

  • Withholding employee taxes.
  • Filing quarterly payroll tax reports.
  • Paying tax withholdings at the local, state and federal levels.
  • At the end of each year, issuing employee W-2 and 1099 forms.

Added Services

Finally, a great provider should offer some sort of additional service, like worker’s compensation solutions or human resources services.

For example, worker’s compensation solutions offer affordable, accessible ways to help your business track and calculate premiums based on exact payroll data while eliminating premium payments. Human resources service provide management tools, solutions and support.
