2017 is a crucial year for payroll in four key areas. The IRS and Social Security Administration are cracking down on reconciliation errors when submitting the Forms W-2. They must match what has been submitted on the Forms 941 or fines will be issued. Key area number one will help ensure you are reconciled not just at year end but at each quarter end.

The states will be auditing furiously to find discrepancies in payroll practices. This is where our key practice number 2—self audits will assist you in finding those “discrepancies” before “they” do. In 2017 there is pressure to increase efficiency and decrease costs, perhaps even more than in previous years. Our third key aspect discusses this trend by advocating that payroll tap into an already free source—technology. 2017 is the year to jump into this trend and follow it to increase efficiency and save money. 

Our final key area is internal. To move forward you must know where you are. You can’t improve a system, practice, or procedure until you know where it stands right now. This is where benchmarking is key to being successful. Expert Vicki M. Lambert will look into all these 4 Key Payroll Practices that will be crucial in 2017.

Session Highlights:

  • Reconcile Forms 941 to Forms W-2 on a quarterly basis

  • Conduct internal audits to find compliance issues before an external one finds you

  • Benchmark your payroll: find out where you are and determine where you want to be
