Important Payroll Features for Next Year
Payroll system features are always changing. Still, there are a handful of essential characteristics to keep in mind when shopping for software. If you’re considering a new payroll system for the coming tax year, be sure to prioritize the following:
- Automatic calculations for state, local, and federal payroll taxes
- Check printing and support, as well as direct deposit facilitation
- Ability to process both “live” and after-the-fact payroll
- High-volume user support for larger companies with bigger staff rosters
- Personalization tools, like user-defined fields for deductions and additions
- View feature with updated state and federal tax liabilities
- Electronic filing support for key federal forms, like the 941, 944, and 940
- State-specific State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) form support
- Disc-based software support, which can help you avoid monthly subscription costs
Additionally, look for payroll software that integrates with other accounting tools. For example, AMS Payroll integrates with our other software modules, including the base W-2/1099 Forms Filer, Forms Filer Plus, and Software Generated Forms platforms. This can help streamline business accounting without paying for tools you won’t use.
Now is the Best Time for a New Payroll System
With tax season fast approaching, employers are searching for more efficient software tools. Starting the year with a new payroll management system software can be an excellent idea. Employers utilize payroll data throughout the year to prepare end-of-year tax forms, like W-2 forms and 1099s. Starting a new tax year with a new payroll system prevents users from experiencing tricky mid-year software migrations. Plus, all important payroll data for the tax year will be in a single platform.
