Most business owners in New York have to fill out NYS Form 100, the New York State Employer Registration for Unemployment Insurance, Withholding and Wage Reporting form. At first glance, this is an intimidating piece of paperwork. With five parts and countless spaces for data entry, new business owners should consider reading through the NYS 100 instructions before jumping in. To complete the form, you’ll need to provide your personal information, liability information, household and domestic service details if applicable, business information, and an affirmation. For a business new to unemployment insurance, this can be a lot to handle. Luckily, registering for unemployment insurance in New York doesn’t have to be difficult, especially if you have software tools at your disposal.
As with most withholding forms, the most difficult piece of information to obtain for NYS Form 100 is related to payroll, even at the registration level. If you have this information on-hand, you can fly through this process in under an hour. If not, securing accurate data can be tricky. Plus, you’ll need a vehicle to file this form, which means you might need to invest in a filer. That’s where we come in.
Advanced Micro Solutions creates user-friendly accounting software for small businesses. Two of our products are particularly useful for completing NYS Form 100: AMS Payroll and our Forms Filer Plus. With these tools at your disposal, registering for unemployment insurance in New York is fast and easy.
AMS Payroll and Forms Filer Plus for NYS Form 100
Accounting software is not likely at the top of most new small business owners’ to-do lists. However, these products can both simplify your current processes and set you up for future success. For example, NYS Form 100 requires information about payroll. If you’ve been doing these calculations manually or with a manual software, locating the required data can be difficult. Investing in a semi-automated payroll software, like AMS Payroll , is a great solution. For an accessible price, users can automatically calculate wages, withholding, and other taxes, then store the information for later use, making monthly, quarterly, and annual wage reporting more efficient.
Similarly, most small business owners don’t think about the need for a forms filer until faced with a tough situation. This is especially true for NYS Form 100. Our Forms Filer Plus is an excellent tool for completing and electronically filing essential tax and wage documents. AMS 1099 software tools can help you register for New York unemployment insurance and provide support for future filings.
