Whitepaper Available to Help Small Business Owners Avoid Payroll Mistakes

Patriot Software, Inc., released a free whitepaper to help small business owners avoid payroll mistakes while executing their payroll process. The whitepaper is called “10 Common Payroll Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make and How to Avoid Them.”

Learning good payroll habits

“Payroll is already a big expense, so if employers can start good habits now, they can avoid the added costs of fines,” says Wendy Bolois, Payroll Product Director of Patriot Software, Inc. “Right now, business owners are finishing up last year’s payroll. Employers can resolve to make a fresh start despite any payroll errors they made in the past.”

The whitepaper includes information about 10 payroll mistakes that employers frequently make. Each page provides information about how to avoid a particular payroll mistake. There is also information on what to do if the employer has already made the mistake.

Payroll is a large expense for small business owners. They have to worry about wages, benefits, taxes, and payroll processing. And, it is easy to make payroll mistakes. Payroll errors can result in costly penalties. In 2013, the IRS subjected businesses to $4.5 billion worth of penalties for payroll taxes alone.

“All employers should learn how to avoid common payroll errors,” Bolois says.

What else is included in “Avoid Payroll Mistakes?”

In addition to the information mentioned above, the free resource also includes many links to additional resources where employers can get more information if they want it.

Patriot’s online payroll software service is an easy, accurate, and affordable payroll solution for for small business owners who want to take the hassle and tedium out of running payroll.

“I know most small business owners are not experts in payroll services. They want a product that just works, and is easy to understand,” said Patriot Software’s CEO, Mike Kappel. “Winning this award is validation that our mission to provide small business owners with the best payroll experience possible is being accomplished.”

Patriot Software has plans to launch more features for its award winning Patriot PAY software in 2016, including an umbrella login that will allow users to access multiple accounts and Patriot Software products with one login account.

Patriot Software Launches Royalty Program for CPA’s, Bookkeepers, and Accountants

Patriot Software, an industry leader in cloud based payroll and accounting solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its Royalty Program. CPA’s, bookkeepers and accountants interested in utilizing Patriot Software’s streamlined accounting and payroll platform can now do so at wholesale prices, and earn royalties for each client they refer.

Patriot Software’s Royalty Program comes in two distinct tracks: Advisors and Certified Advisors. The Advisor program is geared towards CPA’s, bookkeepers and accountants. Advisor Royalty Program members must add a Patriot Software Advisor “badge” to their website. Customers converted from these badge link referrals will net the Advisor up to 10% of that customer’s monthly spend.

For those Accounting Professionals interested in or already providing payroll and accounting services for their clients, Patriot Software offers the Certified Advisor track. Certified Advisors have their choice between wholesale pricing on all Patriot Software products, and an umbrella log-in to help streamline client management.

“Our wholesale pricing makes it so bookkeepers, CPA’s and accountants can run payroll for their clients and make payroll profitable,” said Steven Hoffman, Director of Business Development at Patriot Software. “I’ve talked to CPA’s and accountants that weren’t running payroll at all, but, after seeing our pricing and streamlined platform, they decided to start running payroll simply because our product made offering a payroll service profitable.”

Any CPA, bookkeeper or accountant can become an advisor, but only those who take Patriot Software’s Certified Advisor exam are eligible for Certified status and wholesale pricing.

Patriot Software CEO Interviewed for FitSmallBusiness.com

Mike Kappel, CEO of Patriot Software, Inc., was interviewed for a FitSmallBusiness.com article that discusses the implications of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) notice on small business owners.

In July 2015, the DOL issued a notice that included a clearer test to determine which workers are employees and which workers are independent contractors. Kappel believes small business owners will see an increase in the payroll taxes they have to pay because of the items in the notice.

Contractor vs. Employee

In the Fit Small Business article, Kappel says many businesses currently use independent contractors to avoid paying payroll taxes. Since employers do not have to pay the employer portion of payroll taxes when they use contractors, it can be a huge cost saver for small businesses. Employers do not have to withhold and submit payroll taxes from a contractor’s wages either.

The DOL notice and test are more strict about who can actually be classified as an independent contractor. With the notice, many contractors may need to be reclassified as employees. This means big changes for some employers since they need to issue Form W-2 at year end to each of their employees. Employers also have to withhold and submit payroll taxes for their employees, along with paying the employer portion of the payroll taxes.

While reclassifying independent contractors as employees can be costly, small business owners should follow the DOL guidelines. Not following the guidelines can become much more costly, stated Kappel. If a business misclassified workers, the business may have to pay back wages, overdue payroll taxes, and penalties.

Other article highlights

During his interview, Kappel was asked about the pay methods Patriot’s online payroll software provides to employers. In his response, Kappel revealed Patriot is working to introduce pay cards as another option employers can use to pay employees. Currently, most of Patriot’s customers pay their employees with paychecks; others use direct deposit.

Kappel also explained a couple of the advantages of choosing Patriot Software over larger competitors.

Patriot Software Now Offers Online Payroll in All 50 States

Small business owners in every U.S. state can now use online payroll from Patriot Software, the company announced today.  The company recently approved the states of Pennsylvania and Michigan, finishing work that has been several years in the making, according to Wendy Smith, Patriot Software payroll manager.

“Our team has worked very hard to achieve this milestone,” she said, adding that in order to approve the payroll software in each state, the team had to conduct extensive programming and testing. “Because we guarantee the accuracy of all payroll taxes, we had to factor in the idiosyncrasies of not only each state, but localities within states,” she said.

Easy-to-use online payroll software

“Our online payroll software is designed for small business owners who have little time to learn a complicated software package,” said Mike Kappel, president of Patriot Software and founder of the company, which is based in Canton, Ohio. When he was just starting out as an entrepreneur, Kappel saw the need for simple, affordable software that was designed to meet the needs of small business owners.

“Our software is fast, accurate and powerful,” he said. “Business owners can quickly take care of payroll and other tasks and get back to running their businesses.”

With online payroll, customers simply log into the secure Patriot Software website and can pay their employees in just a few clicks. Employers can choose to print out paychecks or take advantage of free direct deposit, as well as a free employee portal, where employees can view their pay stubs and manage their personal information.

Employers can access reports anytime, and print out W-2s for employees at the end of the year, said Kappel. “They don’t need to be a payroll expert in order to use our software,” he said.

Low monthly cost

The payroll software is also designed to be affordable, with month-to-month pricing scaled to the number of employees receiving paychecks in the business.

“Small businesses should not have to pay big-business prices for payroll software,” he pointed out.

The company offers online payroll options:  Basic Payroll, in which customers take care of their own payroll taxes, and Full Service Payroll, in which Patriot Software handles all required payroll tax deposits and filings for the business.

Free routine support

Another difference is the level of customer support Patriot offers its customers.

“We offer free routine support right here in the U.S.,” he said. “So if someone calls with a question, they will actually get to speak to a real person who can walk them through the software, troubleshoot and answer any questions they may have. Our customers love us!”

Patriot also offers free payroll set-up to new customers, including year-to-date payroll data, as well as help articles and other training tools.

Free trial

Customers can take a free 7-day trial of Patriot Software, or sign up and get their first 30 days free. For more information, call (877) 968-7147 toll-free.

“Our mission is to provide software that is simple, accurate and affordable,” Kappel said.
