Payroll Services

Navigating payroll complexities, from deductions and overtime to adhering to minimum wage laws and tax reporting, poses a significant challenge for small businesses. With payroll being a recurring responsibility, it demands constant attention.

By choosing Axcet HR Solutions, a certified, Kansas PEO, for your payroll services, small business owners unlock the freedom to redirect their focus and resources toward growth.

Our clients enjoy the peace of mind that comes from guaranteed compliance, accurately calculated payroll and the assurance of on-time payments to employees every pay period.


Payroll Administration

You and your HR staff no longer need to be distracted by upcoming payroll deadlines. Axcet’s Kansas-based payroll team accurately administers payroll, including essentials like tracking employee hours and making sure employees are paid correctly.

Beyond these fundamentals, Axcet manages organization-specific tasks, such as including commissions and bonuses and identifying which employees are exempt or non-exempt according to the law.

Axcet’s team of payroll administrators have earned professional certifications that confirm their knowledge and expertise.

Payroll Tax Administration

In Kansas, navigating the ever-changing landscape of payroll tax laws at federal, state and local levels presents a daunting task for small business owners.

With regulations frequently shifting—sometimes retroactively—staying compliant without expert help can lead to costly penalties. In fact, the IRS reports that around 40% of small to medium-sized businesses in the U.S. face payroll penalties annually.

Opt for peace of mind with Axcet HR Solutions as your PEO payroll partner. We ensure accuracy, meet every deadline and maintain compliance with all federal, state and local tax laws, allowing you to focus on leading your business and driving growth.

Payroll Compliance

Leaning on decades of experience and expertise underscored by professional certifications, Axcet ensures clients’ payroll practices remain compliant with federal and Kansas employment laws. We offer years of experience when it comes to payroll compliance because we've been an award-winning, certified PEO provider since 1988.

Whether managing IRS, Fair Labor Standards Act or state requirements, Axcet conducts audits to screen for common payroll errors, fraud and other issues, making adjustments as needed to protect your company from issues that might invite penalties or a Department of Labor audit.

As a certified professional employer organization (CPEO), Axcet has a vested interest in ensuring your Kansas business maintains payroll tax compliance. Certified PEOs must meet rigorous requirements to be certified by the IRS and are solely liable for federal employment taxes on wages they pay their clients’ employees.

Risk Management

As a small or mid-sized business owner, you take on numerous risks and without a PEO provider you take on a bigger risk. Axcet’s risk management professionals are here to support your business with best practices that enhance safety and mitigate claims losses.

Unique among Kansas PEOs, Axcet is recognized as an OSHA VPP (Voluntary Protection Program) Star Worksite, a designation that demonstrates outstanding achievement in preventing and controlling occupational health hazards. 

We utilize our experience and knowledge to help clients achieve their safety and compliance goals every day.

Workplace Safety

A safe workplace is invaluable, boosting employee productivity, reducing injury-related costs, minimizing absenteeism and ensuring adherence to both federal and Kansas safety regulations.

At Axcet HR Solutions, we specialize in helping small and mid-sized businesses establish and uphold secure work environments. Our services include conducting mock OSHA audits, performing job-site safety inspections and crafting tailored safety policies and procedures.

In the event of an actual OSHA inspection and subsequent citation, Axcet's risk management experts are prepared to support your business through the response process, demonstrating our commitment to your company's safety and compliance.

Workers’ Comp Insurance

While we work diligently to minimize the chance of accidents in clients’ workplaces, injuries do sometimes occur. Kansas’ workers’ comp laws differ from those in bordering states, so when injuries happen, Axcet’s long history as a Kansas PEO provider means your company has a partner that can help you adeptly navigate the state’s regulations. 

Axcet’s dedicated, the in-house team manages injury protocols and workers’ comp claims to help contain your costs.

You’ve Got Questions about Kansas PEOs. We’ve Got Answers.

A few frequently asked questions – and answers – for those interested in learning more about PEOs.

PEOs provide human resources services for their small business clients—paying wages and taxes and often assisting with compliance with myriad state and federal rules and regulations. 

In addition, many Kansas PEOs also provide workers with access to 401(k) plans, health, dental and life insurance, dependent care and other benefits not typically provided by small businesses. 

In doing so, they enable clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources, employee benefits, payroll and workers' compensation. 

PEO clients can thus focus on their core competencies to maintain and grow their bottom lines. 

PEO providers typically serve as professional employers of their client's employees. The client company reports its wages under the PEO's federal employer identification number (FEIN) and employee liability shifts to the PEO. Employers gain economies of scale by having more benefits options, sometimes at lower rates.

Businesses, especially small to mid-sized ones, use a PEO provider for several critical reasons:

  • HR Compliance: To navigate the complexities of compliance with EEOC, ADA, DOL, OSHA, and other regulatory bodies without the in-house expertise.
  • Time Management: To alleviate the burden of routine HR and payroll tasks, allowing business owners to focus on growth.
  • Access to Quality Health Benefits: To offer competitive health benefits similar to larger organizations, which is often challenging for smaller businesses due to cost constraints.
  • Scalability: To support the evolving HR needs as the business grows, ensuring the implementation of consistent HR policies and procedures.

PEOs provide a solution for business owners who aim to concentrate on their core operations rather than the intricacies of employment management. They offer expertise in human resources, payroll, regulatory compliance, risk management and employee benefits, granting small businesses in Kansas, and across the country, access to benefits and amenities typically reserved for larger entities.

Business owners want to focus their time and energy on the "business of their business" and not on the "business of employment." As businesses grow, most owners do not have the necessary human resources training, payroll and accounting skills, knowledge of regulatory compliance, or backgrounds in risk management, insurance and employee benefit programs to meet the demands of being an employer. PEOs give small-group markets access to many benefits and employment amenities they would not have otherwise.

Partnering with a PEO brings significant economic advantages by leveraging economies of scale to reduce employment costs and enhance profitability. 

Businesses can minimize or eliminate their in-house HR department, cutting hiring costs and overhead. PEO providers offer expert compliance assistance, reducing liability risks, and provide access to advanced technology and services. 

By managing routine HR tasks, a PEO allows business owners to concentrate on their core activities, driving growth and improving the bottom line.

PEO providers are designed specifically to help small- to mid-sized businesses. Typically, these businesses don’t have the resources in house to effectively manage benefits, payroll, human resources, HR compliance and workers’ comp. 

A PEO fills that need and assumes the responsibility for routine, HR administration, such as payroll, employee handbook, safety assessments and health benefits open enrollment. 

The business maintains complete control over the employees and day-to-day business operations.

Kansas PEOs are generally the best fit for small- to mid-sized businesses that have fewer than 250 employees.

While Axcet is a Kansas PEO, we work with clients who have a presence in 46 states within the United States. So, multi-state and long-distance support is never a problem.

That said, we find that we work best with businesses that are headquartered within 250 miles of Kansas City because we're better positioned to provide the hands-on access that our clients appreciate.


When a company partners with a PEO, a shared employment relationship is created. “Shared employment” means both the company and the PEO provider have an employment relationship with the employee. 

In this relationship, the PEO typically assumes responsibility and liability for the employee administration functions of payroll, benefits, human resources and risk management. 

The company still maintains control over all other employment aspects, including hiring setting wages, supervision, etc.

While both are considered human resources outsourcers, they operate in different roles.
