Payroll Best Practices: 10 Areas You Must Handle Correctly to Ensure Compliance

Venue TBD
B2B 30

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Paying an employee is not simply multiplying the hourly rate by the number of hours worked to get the gross wages and deducting the taxes from these.

Employer responsibilities go beyond taxing and reporting what is paid through the paycheck under IRS and state requirements. Any payment to an employee could and should be considered taxable wages. So the payroll department must not only worry about the fringe benefits it processes such as third-party sick pay, but all of the payments made by accounts payable such as auto allowances, moving expenses, prizes and awards or gift cards given to employees. Garnishments also have to be handled properly. And the responsibility doesn’t end when the employment is terminated. It is also the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all paychecks issued to the employee have been cashed or it must relinquish those wages to the state at regular intervals.

This highly interactive seminar on payroll compliance will help attendees learn:

  • Best practices to comply with the various laws and regulations in 10 strategic compliance areas that are the key targets of government audits or considered the most misinterpreted when paying employees.
  • Which method to use when calculating overtime (there are two permitted under the FLSA).
  • What is and is not a permissible deduction to an exempt employee’s salary under the salary basis rules and how to properly deduct for various types of garnishments to ensure compliance.
  • How to handle the tax and wage/hour law requirements when an employee has been overpaid, and who must handle the taxation of third party sick pay—the employer, the employer’s agent or not the employer’s agent.
  • State tax implications and requirements for withholding the proper income tax when an employee lives and works in two or more states.
  • Best practices for setting up a system to track, report and remit wages considered to be abandoned.
  • Key areas to examine when payments are made to employees through AP such as prizes, bonuses, awards or gift cards.
  • How to handle auto allowances, which may be taxable one month but not the next.
  • How to determine if the personal use of company property such as cell phones and company cars are taxable or not and how to determine the taxable wages for the personal use of a company aircraft.
  • When providing meals or lodging to your employee is or is not taxable.

Upon completing this course participants will:

  • Understand how to calculate overtime correctly under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
  • Know when you can and cannot deduct from an exempt employee’s salary.

  • Learn how to handle overpayments under both wage and hour law as well as IRS regulations and what to do if the overpayment and the repayment occur in separate tax calendar years.
  • Learn the tax ramifications of third party sick pay and how whether the insurance company is the employer’s agent or not the employer’s agent affects the taxation and reporting of the wages.
  • Understand what is considered abandoned wages and how to track, remit and report them properly to the correct state agency.
