Whether it’s weekly, biweekly, or monthly paychecks, one of the top priorities for any company is to meet payroll. Every time. Without fail. It can be especially frustrating when the company is generating enough revenue to meet its payroll obligations, but the payroll processing software is standing in the way for one reason or another. That’s why, in addition to software that can respond to a comprehensive set of payroll processing needs, it’s so important to use a system that’s both dependable and accessible to the businesses that use it. And that’s why more and more businesses are looking to the payroll software from Advanced Micro Solutions.
Basic Components of AMS Payroll Software
Let’s start with the W-2/1099 Forms Filer program. This foundational platform offers much of the back-end payroll processing features. A Common Payee File, for example, is one of the data management resources that eliminate duplicate data entry and manual transfer of payroll information to end-of-year tax filing forms. This platform software is also responsible for many of the data security and data reporting features necessary for modern payroll solutions.
As for the AMS Payroll Software itself, the processing capabilities include both direct deposit and paycheck printing features. In fact, with our Software-Generated Forms module—and the right magnetic toner—you can even handle your own check printing.
Custom Payroll Features
What about payroll processing for employee benefit packages? The AMS Payroll Software module can handle even complex payroll calculations and compensation disbursements. Offering health insurance benefits and paid time off to your staff? Not a problem. Our software can even help you calculate vacation time accrual based on hours worked. Moreover, with our Affordable Care Act Filer, we can file your health plan benefits and other relevant payroll information to your new ACA filing requirement.
What about a retirement plan, you may want to know. Our system allows you to set up automated allowances for IRA, Roth IRA, other retirement accounts, and various matching schemes. In fact, with our 40 User Defined Fields, you can set up a truly customized payroll processing software system that’s truly customized for your company’s priorities.
State- and Industry-Based Payroll Processing Software
These are some of the most common ways that businesses look to customize their payroll processing software. Restaurants in most states have a special hourly wage and tax reporting guidelines for servers. Household employees and residential service companies may both have unique payroll filing requirements based on state laws. Although it’s not necessarily tied to payroll, transportation businesses are another example of an industry that tends to fall under special considerations from the state tax code. Likewise, if you’re an accounting professional who’s looking at payroll software as part of a new business venture, it’s important to have a system that can respond to the needs of a wide range of prospective business clients.
