What Every Business Owner Should Know About Outsourcing Payroll Services

Many employers are outsourcing their payroll and tax responsibilities to third-party payroll providers, such as AmCheck, and for good reason.

Outsourcing can streamline business operations, free up resources and ensure that filing deadlines are met.

Payroll services typically include:

  • Administration assistance
  • Tax payment services
  • Onsite payroll software

While these outsourced services typically save on time and resources, employers should consider a couple of things prior to signing up.

  1. Tax liability. The employer is liable for the deposit and payment of federal tax responsibilities. While the third-party payroll solutions provider can still make tax deposits forwarded from the employer, the employer is still ultimately responsible.
  2. Payment system. Make sure the payroll solutions provider is using Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). This system allows employers to confirm that their payments are being made properly. Employers can register on the EFTPS site and get their own PIN to verify payments.
