It’s one thing to know that basic federal payroll taxes are 12.8 percent, 6.4 percent each from the employee and employer. It’s another thing to know that 1099 subcontractors are responsible for paying these taxes on their own. Indeed, you may have a handful of basic tax rates memorized. You may have all of the relevant tax tables on file, ready to reference. But this still doesn’t mean that you can handle the actual number-crunching and countless payroll calculations, and this explains why payroll calculation software is such a critical component of both small- and large-scale payroll operations.
Let’s Build a Better Payroll System Together
We recognize that sometimes a little extra knowledge goes a long way toward impressing colleagues and prospective business clients, even if that knowledge is rarely needed on a day-to-day basis. We’ve designed an intuitive, menu-driven solution that provides easy access to payroll features, but you’ll also be able to view the updated tax tables and other essential payroll information. Moreover, the Support Knowledge Base provides information and instruction about leveraging all the functionality and benefits of the AMS software. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing how the software works and the back-end payroll information. Meanwhile, the AMS Payroll Software continues to automatically take care of the heavy lifting when it comes to everyday data calculations and ongoing information reporting.
Indeed, there are several ways to leverage your impressive knowledge of the tax code and the payroll accounting needs of local businesses. Our payroll calculation software includes custom user-defined fields, for example, that can be integrated and updated into your payroll solution. This could be compound payroll calculations, but it can also be used to accommodate specialized employee benefits such as insurance benefits, paid time off, and retirement plans. In this way, the combination of automated software and local accounting knowledge can make for a truly powerful and imminently marketable service model.
The AMS Commitment
Our payroll calculation software is tied to the AMS base program, our W-2/1099 Forms Filer. This means all the payroll data that’s accumulated throughout the year is there waiting to be imported to your filing forms. Indeed, as accounting professionals know, payroll operations require a lot more data management than just calculating checks for discrete pay periods. Along with data from Excel, Lotus, QuickBooks, and PeachTree, other importable data files include:
- Columnar Report File
- Tab Delimited Text File
- Comma Delimited Text File
- Lotus WK1 or dBAse III DBF File
- Quickbooks 1099/W2 Print File
- Form Print File
- Federal 1099 and W-2 MAG Files
Know that the AMS commitment to keeping pace with your payroll calculation software needs includes a lot more than just updated tax tables. Our ACA Filer module provides software support for those businesses that fall under the ACA filing requirements. Take care of all your 1094 and 1095 filing needs the first time out with this module.
