Unemployment insurance is a part of every employer’s business. Luckily, Ohio provides some pretty helpful tools and resources for employers, including the Employer’s Guide to Ohio Unemployment Insurance. To that end, the Department of Job and Family Services encourages employers to file their quarterly unemployment tax returns through ERIC, the state’s Employer Resource Information Center. This saves time and is the most secure filing method available.
While the Ohio unemployment insurance for employers guide provides some helpful information, we want to make your life a bit easier. Below, you’ll find a quick synopsis of the process and what we can do to make it easier.
What You Need to Know About Unemployment Insurance
While each state administers a separate unemployment insurance program, all follow the same guidelines as established by federal law. In Ohio, your business will need to report and pay unemployment compensation on a quarterly basis. The process itself isn’t time-consuming, but if you don’t have the correct data on-hand, it could take a while to complete the necessary calculations. Keeping track of your finances is an essential part of running a business, but holding all payroll and unemployment compensation information in a single place is important for easy reporting. That’s where AMS can help.
AMS Payroll and Ohio Unemployment Insurance for Employers
The state’s employer guide recommends uploading data directly into ERIC. This greatly reduces the possibility of errors and allows for faster, more efficient processing. If, however, you don’t have a payroll software to generate, accumulate, and store that data, you’ll be stuck inputting individual data points for hours. This is exactly the inconvenience AMS aims to fix.
AMS Payroll Software and our 1099 software are our most popular software tools, perfect for reporting Ohio unemployment insurance for employers. The software will automatically calculate federal, state, and local taxes, then cut employee paychecks accordingly. Those withheld funds are recorded and stored in the tool’s back-end data hosting feature. When you’re ready to file your Quarterly Report, simply upload this file to ERIC. It’s really that easy. In fact, AMS Payroll can export to a variety of locations, including QuickBooks and any tab-delimited text file.
