Bookkeepers Plus of Long Island performing payroll services to companies

Headaches from payroll routines?Payroll is one of those functions which involve a lot of detail, accuracy, inspection and even changing elements... all building up to a tedious task whose MISTAKES are quickly found but which receives no applause when performed correctly.

In other words, payroll needs to be done correctly and within a set deadline every time... and if you achieve that then nobody thanks you...

...which in itself is thanks enough as, not surprisingly, any mistakes are quickly noticed by employees.

The nature of payroll makes it the ideal candidate for outsourcing.

Why take the risk of mistakes onto yourself? In fact, why take the BLAME for any mistakes either?

The fact is that outsourcing payroll will ensure the tasks are carried out by top professionals using the latest software and utilizing their huge experience in the process... so mistakes are rare and the cost is set no matter how long the work takes.

An accounting professional can perform these duties accurately but if you outsource the function, you will not only save on cost but relieve yourself (and your team members) of a lot of unnecessary headaches as well.

Payroll involves these functions:


Calculating the pay of each employee from time cards or other sources

Calculating pay from time cards.This can sometimes be time-consuming but the important thing is to be accurate so that your employees won't be upset by some part of their salary being forgotten.

Of course, it is equally important to avoid overpayment by mistake to any employee.

Accuracy is the key here and it usually requires quite a bit of experience and professionalism to be able to do payroll calculations quickly yet correctly.

We also calculate commissions and other non-hourly compensations as required for your payroll.

Accuracy and experience form the foundations of quality payroll service.

It cannot be overstated how much experience benefits the speed and correctness (and, hence, cost-efficiency) of payroll calculations. This is where the cost-cutting benefit comes in favor of outsourcing payroll functions.

The job is done by someone who does payroll continuously and thus has developed the required speed and accuracy to perform the work at low cost.


Executing the payment of salaries

Payment of salaries.Payroll includes the actions of printing checks & distributing these to your employees.

Alternately, dependent on your preferences, the payment could also be made through direct deposits.

Equally, payroll can include payments to your subcontractors directly into their bank account or by check.

The payment part doesn't sound like much perhaps but it does require quite a bit of time over say one year... time you can be using more beneficially with the core activities of your business.


Preparing all quarterly & yearly Payroll Tax Returns

Quarterly and yearly payroll tax returns.Payroll includes the preparation of quarterly and yearly tax returns. Equally, we keep track on all payroll taxes, ensuring that these are paid on time.

Similarly, we will collect all required payroll forms such as I-9 "Employment Eligibility Verification" (legal to work in the US) , and "Withholding Tax Form-W-4".

We will prepare year-end employee earnings form for tax purposes (a W-2).

Furthermore, we will report all wages and taxes to the government either electronically or by paper forms — as per your preferences — and record all wages and taxes on the books.

If you are using QuickBooks we can download the wages and taxes directly to your books.


Keeping track of other payments & reimbursement of expenses

Payment and reimbursement tracking.Another aspect of payroll functions involves keeping track of payments to subcontractors and other non-employees — whatever their status and connection with your company — and then reporting their earnings to the government (Form 1099 reporting).

We would also take care of reimbursing your employees for any expenses they've laid out of their pocket and track (and verify) those expenses to be factual and valid.

We would make sure that your employees turn in their receipts and that those expenses were legitimate. Any abuse of expense accounts would be reported to you directly.

Furthermore, due to our years of experience in performing these expense verifications, our knowledge covers all manner of misappropriation of company expense accounts, so the filter for such abuses would be tighter.



Timekeeping as part of outsourced payroll functions.We can also assist in timekeeping, such as Recommend, setup and maintain timekeeping systems from simple time cards to electronic systems integrated into your QuickBooks.

Time is money when it comes to minutes and hours you pay for.

Additionally we would tally time from time cards, enter into QuickBooks, Peachtree or other software, thus associating employee-time with job costs.


Benefits of outsourcing payroll to Bookkeepers Plus Inc.

Save your energy to your core activities.Perhaps the biggest benefit of outsourcing your payroll to us involves the cost-efficiency and accuracy of the work due to our experience and training in these matters.

The payroll service of Bookkeepers Plus is geared towards small businesses.

I personally guarantee that our service is very flexible — and definitely more accommodating than the larger payroll services.

We handle requests in a time frame the big services simply cannot facilitate.

Please remember that outsourcing your payroll to us does NOT require you to change your accountant or CPA.

Payroll functions can be a nightmare for anyone lacking in resources or support for the latest data.

Equally, fraud detection requires experience on the many WAYS an employee could abuse their expense accounts.

Relieving your company from payroll functions frees up space and even time, for payroll done in-house usually involves other people as questions are asked and so on... so none of this comes on your lines any longer.

Cost-efficiency is an important consideration also, of course. Accounting professionals with extensive experience can handle your payroll at a competitive price AND you receive the added security of their knowhow as a free bonus!
