Every business should outsource activities that are not within the realm of the core business. Unless the company is in the business of providing payroll services, performing payroll in-house will cause a large time and money drain.
Payroll is a service that most businesses outsource. Some of the key functional features that a business looks for in a payroll service are:
1) Easy to Use Web-based Payroll Solution
2) Data Entry
3) Comprehensive Reports
4) Employee Self Service
5) Human Resource Features
However, a business can be disappointed after choosing a payroll service provider. The disappointment will set in when support is needed from the provider. That is the time when a business can find that the ‘personal touch’ is missing in their chosen provider. Support from a payroll service provider can be hard to reach and, when finally reached, lacking in knowledge and quality.
Payroll Unlimited, Inc. is a full service payroll company that has been providing outstanding payroll and benefits solutions to small and medium size businesses nationwide since 1992. The key difference for Payroll Unlimited compared to the other payroll service providers is the professional, knowledgeable individual that answers the phone every time!
A cloud-based payroll service can greatly reduce your costs by helping you avoid unnecessary penalties by staying in front of ever-changing regulatory requirements.
Payroll Reporting is one of the major benefits of an automated payroll process. Automated reports can quickly provide analysis of the data and organize the information into required formats meeting government regulations.
As the National Payroll Reporting Consortium (NPRC) states “Federal, state and local agencies have developed a wide variety of reporting rules, formats and media over time. This diversity alone poses significant challenges for the Industry. Here are a few examples:
- Mandatory use of specific reporting media, such as electronic filing or payments, may apply to either payroll service organizations, or to large employers.
- Some states ask that particular technologies be employed, which may have been designed for individual employers, or are otherwise inappropriate for bulk filings.
- The Industry has difficulties with unique client authorization requirements, such as state-specific Powers of Attorney, notarization, or additional registration requirements such as supplemental authorization forms to report using an electronic technology.”
