Why You Should Be Thinking About Payroll

The landscape for payroll has changed dramatically in the last few years. Now more than ever before, accountants can compete with large service bureaus and white label their own online payroll service. Accountants can also meet the individual needs of their clients by hand-holding them through the payroll process or on the other end of the spectrum, recommend low cost service providers who will give them the same level of service as outsourcers, at a discounted price. While I can't make you overcome your objections about doing payroll, I can tell you that you can make money doing it and it is easier than you think. So, if you aren't thinking about payroll, you should be.

Welcome: Nora Denzel, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Intuit Employee Management Solutions
