Workers Compensation Review & Audits

Most businesses have their employees classified incorrectly (which is mainly directed by your insurance provider/broker). We will take a look at your departments and classify each employee to the appropriate department.  Then we will speak with the Workers Comp auditor to determine the correct classifications. We will then work directly with the auditor to obtain the list of reports and items needed for the audit. After gathering everything requested, we will coordinate with the auditor and HR/Owner for the in-person audit, and will attend the meeting to ensure a smooth and successful audit.

Depending if your company needs to file monthly pre-payments or quarterly payments, we can file your Sales & Use tax payments on time online. 

Payroll

Payroll is the #1 item that is booked incorrectly in most companies. We will create and book the AJE to book payroll properly. Which includes tracking and recording wages, bonuses, commission, vacation, holiday, taxes, as well as, deductions and garnishments. To take it a step further, we can assist with setting up departments with your payroll company, so you can see in depth the cost of each department within your company when running financial statements. Should you need assistance with processing payroll, we can recommend several companies which would be a good fit for you and your company.

We will provide a set of financials for the business and personal account each month, quarter etc. (depending on desired deadline).

Monthly or quarterly we will reconcile all asset & liability accounts to tie to the statements. Upon reconciling the accounts, a reconciliation report will be provided, along with, detailed notes pointing out uncleared deposits and/or checks (which are 60+ days outstanding and have not cleared your bank).
