If you are an employer currently handling payroll on your own, you may want to consider a payroll direct deposit software to expedite payroll and make the process easier for you and your employees. Software tools are incredibly helpful for tax calculations and check preparations. Employees rely on their employers for timely and accurate checks, whether those checks are physical or direct deposited. AMS offers a modular payroll software which is both budget friendly and customizable to help you with your individual payroll needs.
Employer Payroll Responsibilities
As an employer, you are responsible for establishing payroll and setting up your employees to receive their wages. The first part of that process is collecting completed W-4 forms from your employees. The W-4 is an employee’s withholding certificate which indicates how much in taxes you withhold from their paychecks. Once you know how much to withhold, you can start preparing payroll.
Each payroll cycle, you will calculate an employee’s total wages based on their salary or hourly rate and deduct payroll taxes, according to their W-4. You then remit those taxes and your employment taxes to the IRS and distribute paychecks to employees. After the current pay cycle ends, the next one begins.
Most commonly, employers distribute checks either as physical checks or through electronic direct deposit. There are pros and cons to each payment method, but you may need to account for both if your employees need both ways. For this reason, you should make sure your payroll direct deposit software can also print physical checks.
How AMS Payroll Direct Deposit Software Can Help Employers
AMS Payroll Software makes life easier for employers. Our software makes for simple employee setup and can support up to 9,999 individual employee files per payer. You only have to enter information once when setting up an employee. If an employee updates their W-4 for financial or personal reasons, you can easily update their tax withholding information.
Our payroll software automatically calculates federal, state, and local payroll taxes to help you accurately prepare checks. When you are ready to distribute pay, you can print checks or process direct deposit. The software supports over 30 different check types, depending on the kind you choose to use.
