Illinois Unemployment Insurance for Employers is Easy with AMS

UI-related forms are notoriously time-consuming, and quarterly filing means accountants and business owners should determine methods to streamline the process. These filings must be up-to-date and accurate, as adjustments cannot be made for prior quarters on current reports. In addition to providing information regarding gross wages earned and payment, those filling out the UI 3/40 must include information for each employee: SSN, full name, and total wages paid. For larger companies, this process can take hours.

Advanced Micro Solutions is working to change that. Our range of accounting software products aim to make your filing and reporting process easier. We operate on a modular system, which allows for optimum customization—perfect for Illinois business owners and accountants. Moreover, by including filing support with our payroll software, forms such as the UI 3/40 are easier than ever. To reference the form itself, please see the online version provided by the Illinois Department of Employment Security.

AMS Payroll and Illinois Unemployment Insurance for Employers

Completing the UI 3/40 form is easiest when paired with your payroll program. Ideally, payroll software should store essential employee data, such as that required of this form—social security numbers, names, contact information, and gross wages per quarter. Most payroll programs can do this. However, AMS Payroll Software adds another dimension to payroll software; we incorporate extensive filing and reporting tools.

An add-on module to the W-2 & 1099 Software, AMS Payroll allows for payroll and other 1099 information to be entered by check throughout the year. This data will then easily transfer to your state and federal quarterly unemployment forms, making for a highly streamlined process. The data will also transfer to your end-of-year W-2s and 1099s, making this the perfect product for frequent, accurate, and efficient filings.
