It is vital for a company to have full control over its payroll system to ensure that it processes employee compensation accurately and quickly. With AccountMate’s Payroll module, you can set up records for salaried, hourly, time card, or piece work employees and independent contractors. You can pay them over a variety of pay periods that suit your company policy and each employee’s pay and employment status. Within this flexible system, deductions can be withheld from the employee’s payroll and matched by employers. Additional payments, including bonuses and fringe benefits, can be recorded for any employee. AccountMate can be configured to accrue paid leave hours, to calculate worker’s compensation liability, to print on blank or preprinted check stock, and to assign multiple states and local tax codes to each employee. With an annual tax subscription, you can download the latest payroll tax updates that will be used to calculate payroll taxes and print payroll tax returns, W-2 forms, and 1099 forms. Using the Payroll module, employee and federal tax deposit payments can be made electronically.
