A few things to look out for when doing your payroll
It is nearly always best to pay for a payroll service. The problem is, when it goes wrong, it's you that has to take all the flack. It is rare but there are definitely some companies out there that really do hit the mark when it comes to payroll.
If you are unfortunate enough to have a company like this looking after your payroll maybe it's time to move on. No one wants to be stuck in a situation like this so just get out of it. End the relationship with the company and get someone else.
How do you avoid the same problems? We have a list of a couple of things you should look out for before signing up with anyone.
1: The Records: This is just basic knowledge, if you need someone to come in and take over they need to be up to date with where you are at so get those records!
2: Stay on: Be sure you keep the service with your current payrol company until the new guys have everything set up. This stops any possibility of the new payroll guys not taking you on due to lack of information.
3: Clean up: Any service will have to pay any outstanding tax so make sure you set that agreement up with your current payroll before switching over.
Other than this just be sure that you are on the same page with the upcoming plan. If you do all of the above, you should be good to go!
