Online Payroll Services for Small Business: Reconciliation
Business owners that use third-party payroll systems often stumble when reconciling payroll with their accounting software. They post a single payroll entry to their general ledger, thinking that it will cover everything they need to record. However, when they try to reconcile their payroll ledger with their bank statements, the reconciliation doesn’t work. This issue comes up for a couple of reasons:
- Outstanding checks. Employees don’t always cash their checks in a timely manner. The payroll total entered by the business bookkeeper doesn’t match the cleared checks.
- Payroll taxes. Both federal and state government agencies sometimes fail to process payroll tax payments in a timely way. Although your payroll taxes are rolled into your single payroll entry, they’re not withdrawn from your bank account.
A payroll ledger includes many interwoven pieces, including employee pay, payroll taxes, insurance, employee benefits, and more. Completing a manual lump sum entry makes it tough to see where your money goes and which components of payroll are affecting your net income. That’s why companies need payroll services that can also offer payroll general ledger reconciliation. You should be able to view your payroll information at a glance, right next to your other business financial information.
When you use National PEO to administer your payroll services online, you get the convenience of reporting payroll over the phone, over email, or online — whichever is easiest. You don’t have to worry about going into the office to process payroll when you’re on vacation. Your payroll information gets uploaded and processed quickly and accurately.
Once your payroll is complete, you can login to view your data anytime. You can also reconcile your payroll data with QuickBooks or other accounting software, either after every pay period or monthly – whatever works for you. Everything you need to know, including salary and wage totals, taxes, health insurance expenses, and other benefits expenses, downloads into your accounting software so that you can see everything at once.
With National PEOs payroll services, you’ll never have to worry about bank reconciliation when an employee fails to deposit a check. Because individual check data downloads from your National PEO dashboard to your accounting system, your accounting system can flag the outstanding check when it’s reconciling your bank statements. You won’t have to deal with end-of-month delays, searches for outstanding checks, and other time-consuming issues. Payroll ledger reconciliation becomes painless, detailed, and mistake-free when you use National PEO’s services.
