What You Don’t Know About Payroll Will Harm You
Payroll is a company’s largest expense. It’s also hard. It’s more than just pushing Send on your computer a couple of days before payday so everyone’s direct deposit lands in their bank accounts. Payroll is a welter of federal and state tax and labor laws, which sometimes intersect and sometimes don’t. And not knowing how everything is woven together can be a career black eye for you.
You can outsource your payroll to a third-party, as many companies do. But you’re not outsourcing your liability to the IRS. Worse: The IRS can come after you personally for the company’s undeposited payroll taxes. You’re also not outsourcing your liability to employees, who generally can’t sign away their rights under federal or state law.
This new webinar training will help you understand the basic payroll rules and processes so you think like a payroll pro and save the company from embarrassing and costly fines for noncompliance.
