Services that include weekly, monthly, or annual bookkeeping and accounting for businesses or other organizations and payroll preparation for each payroll period and/or for year-end reporting.
The bookkeeping and payroll professionals at Contryman Associates assure that payroll and accounting reports will be accurate (based on the information you provide) and that you will receive the work completed timely so you will never pay a late filing penalty because you or your bookkeeping personnel were unable to do the work on time. By outsourcing these tasks to Contryman Associates, you can give your office personnel more time for completing other duties and save potential overtime, possibly reducing the number of clerical employees on your payroll. Your employees will not have to learn the complicated payroll and accounting rules nor keep up with frequent changes to federal and state tax laws.
Because we are a CPA firm, we are held to the highest level of confidentiality. By having us prepare your payroll and accounting reports, your employees need not have access to this sensitive information. You will have the information you need to make informed decisions about your operations – opportunities that may make you more profitable – and all necessary tax and other reporting information is calculated for you.
- Meet with a Contryman professional to determine your accounting and payroll needs
- We will tell you what information we will need from you and establish a system for collecting it on a regular basis (if applicable).
- We will professionally prepare your payroll and associated reports and provide any reports you require for the management of your organization from year-end financial statements to weekly computation of time cards and payroll preparation.
We recently began providing full payroll services for an area agronomist. For years, after calculating and then writing his payroll checks himself, he would come to our office each month with his employees’ pay stubs in hand and wait while we calculated his withholding payments to the government and prepared the accompanying reports. Now, he simply calls us each pay period with the hours each of his 10 employees has worked. We calculate their earnings, determine deductions, print pay stubs and direct deposit the pay checks. We also prepare his deposits electronically so he doesn’t even have to go to the bank. His payroll checks are ready when he comes to pick them up. A process that, before, consumed several hours each pay period is now one quick stop. At year-end, because we have all of his payroll information on hand, we will be able to prepare his W-2 forms and other payroll reports with ease and accuracy.
