There is no question that payroll service providers can offer an invaluable help when it comes to figuring out and filing your company’s payroll taxes, printing out employee checks and answering payroll-related questions. However, with so many service options out there, it is often difficult for business owners to figure out which one to use.
Some tips to help with this difficult decision can be found here.
What Services are Offered and What Certifications do the Staff Members Have?
You need to know that you are going to work with a payroll company that offers more than just the basics. As a result, you need a service provider that has a CPA on staff, as well as staff members with other certifications, such as one from the American Payroll Association. These are signs you have found a quality service provider.
What Security Measures are Used to Protect the Company’s Payroll Data?
Another consideration to make when searching for payroll service providers is what type of security measures the company has in place. They should utilize secure data storage, encrypted data, firewalls, malware and antivirus programs and provide adequate employee training on various aspects of data security. They should also make each employee undergo a federal background check prior to being able to work with any client’s sensitive payroll information.
When you use the tips and information here, you will find that it is easier to find and hire quality and reliable payroll service providers. Don’t rush in, as this may leave you working with a company that is unable to deliver the results you want and need.
