When it comes to running your business, there are many key factors that play a huge roll in keeping it well oiled, especially when it comes to expenses. One of the most critical, time consuming, and important components when it comes to employees is payroll. They want to be paid, and they want to be paid on time. Other than the act of paying out employees, businesses also have to ensure they fully understand and comply with all applicable tax and employment laws. When it comes to the IRS and the state tax agencies, ignorance is no longer bliss—or an excuse. While many businesses opt to perform payroll duties on their own, many don’t have the flexibility in their days to complete a time-consuming and tedious endeavor all on their own, while ensuring they remain compliant in an ever-changing regulatory world.
