A Letter to Our Clients – Are Your Payroll Practices Compliant With State & Federal Pay Rules?

Are your payroll practices compliant with state and federal pay rules?

Do you have team members you classify as “Contract Employees”?

Have you followed best practices when setting up your employee documentation?

Do you know how much money you could lose from an unemployment claim
or misclassification suit?

Would you benefit from a payroll compliance review?

We’re always looking for ways to serve you…

Dear Valued Client –

As we move toward the end of 2017, we’re taking the time to focus on some of the recurring issues we have seen this year. One of the greatest concerns we have at this time is how some of our clients are classifying and paying their employees.

We periodically get questions about payroll – even from clients who do not use our payroll services – and realize this is an area of practice ownership that is often incompliant with current state and federal pay rules. Even clients who have owned their practice for years are operating under major misconceptions about paying their team members, and often don’t find out about the rules until they have a Texas Workforce Commission Unemployment Insurance Benefit claim or an IRS audit. By then, it’s too late to rectify the issues and the client often ends up paying back wages, fees, fines, etc.

This is such a critical piece of your practice, and we want to make sure you’re getting it right. Because of this, we’re offering a FREE payroll compliance evaluation for clients who want to ensure they’re paying their team members the right way, and to educate themselves on state and federal pay rules. This offer is available until the end of 2017, and will include a meeting or call with a firm representative to review your current pay structures and employee pay policies. If you are interested in having your payroll system evaluated for compliance, email kara@parkhurstassociatescpa.com to set up your free consultation. We hope you take advantage of this offer, even if you feel your payroll system is functioning properly; you don’t know what you don’t know, right?

Have a great week!
