Each pay period, customers can contact full-service payroll providers with all the employee information they have, including new hires, pay hikes, federal, state or local tax payments, and any other changes in payment. The full service payroll service provider will do the rest. This means processing the company payroll together with calculating earnings and salaries, federal, state and local taxes, and embellishments of any kind.
The payroll in some instances could even be processed the day of receipt by the full service payment service giver and be delivered to multiple locations overnight via mail or courier. The payroll particulars will include checks (or pay vouchers for those using the direct deposit system), accounting synopses, payroll registers and other payment-related supplies. An entire package relating to taxes, federal, state and local, will be made and forwarded to the customer at the end of each tax cycle.
Full-service payroll services could also include data entry via phone, fax or Internet. The provisioning of weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payroll registers and accounting sum-ups is also on offer. Tax liability reports, annual W-2 processing, tailor payroll records to suit needs based on location and department, time card processing and employee leave tracking are some of the other services offered.
A "payroll extra", as it is called, is the preparation of payroll checks for signature. Payroll details will include for each payroll checks or payment vouchers, employee wage reports, payroll journals, departmental or location fee summaries, and payroll tax outline. For each month, the customer will receive month-end summaries based on location costs or payroll tax. For every quarter, federal tax return, state unemployment tax return and local tax returns are provided. And annually, W2s, federal tax withholding lines, federal unemployment tax return outline and state or local tax synopses are given as requested.
