Payroll Accounting

Written by Eddy Hood

Payroll-Accounting-ServiceSmall business owners manage most aspects of their business. They must be a marketer, a salesperson, and still find time to manage the finances. Whether you're managing several different offices or a small storefront, you can benefit from using accounting and payroll services to automate your admin tasks. This is one area of operations that makes sense to have outsourced.

Reduce Payroll Accounting Costs

Many businesses hire a payroll accountant to keep track of all the IRS filings, employer taxes, and more. However, when you're just starting out, you may not be able to afford someone full time. The full-time salary of an accountant depends upon where you live, but did you know that their average wage, according to Payscale as of 2019, is $50,757 and will likely go up. After you pay your employer taxes, you're going to be closer to $56,000 a year.  Is that a cost you want to assume just to keep your books and payroll straight? Probably not. That's why so many companies now use accounting and payroll services at a fraction of the cost.

If you're just starting your business, you may be wondering how payroll accounting is it different from your other bookkeeping needs. Payroll accounting will help you process your payroll for your employees each month, ensure that you're paying the correct amount in payroll taxes (as well as submitting payments to the IRS and state tax commissions on time), and keep track of all documentation. If you have hourly or commissioned employees, it can be a time-consuming process, especially as your business continues to grow.

Payroll Accounting and the IRS

According to IRS guidelines, there are a number of things a small business owner needs to understand when it comes to owning and operating a business.
