The benefits of working with a CPA-backed payroll company

by: Yvonne Chmielewski

As we close out 2016, you’re probably coordinating those year-end or holiday bonuses with your payroll company.  Or you may be doing that on your own!  It can be a pain and worse yet, you likely don’t have the time to make sure the calculations are correct and compliant.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Since we started GreenSmart Payroll Solutions more than five years ago, we’ve encountered those issues as well as these other scenarios that are causing our clients to consider moving their payroll services to us:  

“My payroll contact hasn’t called me back.  I found out that my contact person has left the company.”

“My payroll company cannot calculate the special payment or bonus check with the taxes that my CPA recommended.”

“My payroll company told me that the quarter or year has been closed and can only be reopened for a fee.”

“My CPA is requesting payroll reports for planning or tax compliance purposes.”

“My payroll situation requires more experience than my payroll representative could handle.”

GreenSmart Payroll Solutions has clients who have moved their payroll services over to us to experience the benefits of a “one-stop shop.” Our clients appreciate the fact that they can come to the office for a meeting with their CPA and also meet with their payroll specialist during the same meeting.  Bringing together payroll and accounting services creates tangible benefits for our clients, including:

  • A seamless integration between your CPA and your payroll service.
  • All payroll taxes are paid automatically for payroll clients.
  • Bonuses can be direct deposited (subject to ACH rules) or paper checks that you can distribute by year-end.
  • No question goes unanswered when it comes to payroll taxes, withholdings or tax issues.

Is GreenSmart right for my business?
Forget talking to an automated service!  GreenSmart Payroll Solutions is committed to the same excellent customer service standards that set Hobe & Lucas apart from the competition. You can rest assured knowing that you will get your questions answered in a timely and thorough manner.  Plus, have the peace of mind knowing we understand your full financial situation to provide comprehensive answers and recommendations. Remember,  GreenSmart is the payroll company with a back office of CPA’s.!

Now’s the time to make the switch to GreenSmart before 2017.
Work with a payroll company who knows the guidelines and regulations.  We offer customized and flexible payroll services combining all the capabilities of national payroll firms, but with our state-of-the-art, cloud-based payroll platform and backed by a certified professional accounting firm you trust.
