A Better Solution for Payroll for Non-Profit Organizations

Operations efficiency is necessary for any non-profit organization, regardless of size. Whether this means having a well-trained staff or hosting several fundraising events very month, your non-profit organization will flourish if you devote the time and resources to the avenues that matter. Customized and automated payroll for non-profit organizations is just what you need to make your resources go further. AMS Payroll is here to help.

Payroll for Non-Profit Organizations Should be Personalized

As with for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations must withhold Social Security, Medicare, federal, and state taxes from payroll. Additionally, they must also pay federal and state unemployment insurance, state disability taxes, and follow workers’ compensation laws. People assume that those who work for nonprofit organizations may take less salary, or perhaps donate a portion of their time. However, non-profit payroll departments handle this process in similar ways as a for-profit business might—with a few exceptions.

The most notable difference comes in the form of bonuses and commissions. In for-profit businesses, these payments are tied to sales and used for profit incentives. However, non-profit organizations operate differently; no individuals or group may benefit from the money raised. These are often discouraged unless they fall under reasonable compensation. Regardless of the way in which your non-profit organization handles payroll, you need a program that conforms to your exact needs.
