Payroll can be confusing. After all, it’s not always as simple as cutting a check for a week’s worth of work. There are a lot of things you have to consider, like how your employees are classified, taxes that need to be withheld, and whether the individuals doing your payroll have up-to-date training.
Heather McNichols, Rea’s director of accounting services, joins us on this episode of unsuitable to help businesses avoid common payroll pitfalls, while offering insight into solutions that will help make your payroll processes a breeze.
America Works: Celebrating National Payroll Week
Every year, the American Payroll Association celebrates National Payroll Week (they even have a song). At Rea & Associates, we like to join them in celebrating America’s 150 million wage earners and the professionals who pay them by making payroll a little bit easier.
If you want to simplify payroll, listen to learn:
- Whether someone should be classified as an employee or a subcontractor.
- How to navigate complex tax withholding rules.
- Why asking for help, as an employee or a business, can save you a lot of time in the short-term (and trouble in the long-term).
