If you run a business, payroll is a part of your everyday life. And if you handle payroll yourself, you know how complicated and time-consuming it is. Most business owners who handle their own payroll have considered hiring a payroll service at least once. If you are such a business owner, what’s keeping you from hiring a service for your payroll in MA? Some business owners are hesitant because they are not exactly sure what a payroll service does. In that case, ABC Payroll is here to help.

These are the services that you receive if you hire a company to handle your payroll in MA.


Automatic Processing

How much time do you spend calculating payroll? You’d think it would be straightforward, but there’s more involved than just multiplying wages by hours worked. You also have to factor in withholdings for taxes, benefits, and more. When you hire a payroll service, the system does all the processing automatically. You don’t even have to monitor your employees’ time and attendance, the payroll system can take care of that, too.


Compliance Issues

Laws and regulations change all the time and it’s challenging to keep up. When you own a business, you’re busy running it and you don’t have time to do research to ensure that you understand new rules. When you hire a payroll service, they do all of that for you. The service monitors those changes and ensures that your business is compliant with all applicable laws and regulation changes.


Payroll Reporting

Even if you are diligent in tracking your payroll and you keep up with all the rules and correct withholdings, you still need to report all that correctly and on time. A payroll service will send reports where they need to go so you don’t have to worry about it. And you can easily run reports yourself to see how much you are paying in wages, withholding in taxes, and more. You can even set it up so that taxes and payments are automatically sent so you never miss a deadline.


Employee Portals

Your employees will benefit from a payroll service as well. If they need to check on their wages, withholdings, taxes, or benefits, they can easily access all that information. When your employees can see all that information themselves, it saves you all time and gives your employees privacy and confidence.
