What Are Payroll Services?

Payroll services are a business solution that ensure your employees receive the pay they have earned. If your business has W-2 employees, then the IRS requires you to pay them through payroll so it can confirm your company and your workers are paying taxes. When your employees are paid accurately and on time, they feel valued, and you have one less thing to worry about.

Almost all small businesses can benefit from outsourcing payroll to a certified professional employer organization (CPEO) like Axcet. Yes, it can feel scary to outsource. The truth, though, is that continuing hands-on management of payroll processing, especially as your employee headcount increases, can take your attention away from growing your business.

With Axcet, you’ll have a trusted, reliable, knowledgeable payroll services partner who has your back every step of the way.

Clients that utilize Axcet’s services provide employee hours or salary amounts and approve their payroll online. That’s it. Axcet handles every other step to getting payroll out the door quickly and correctly.

Benefits of Outsourcing to a Payroll Company

By choosing Axcet as your full-service payroll provider, your company also gets assistance with employee time and attendance tracking, work location tracking for payroll and taxes and payroll tax administration services.

Companies that outsource to us are insulated from penalties because, as a CPEO, Axcet is solely liable for the federal employment taxes on wages paid to clients’ employees.

I have found that I have a problem with the computer program in part because I have macular degeneration in both eyes and double vision in my right eye. It is frustrating that I am asked to rate this program before I even get logged in.

When we left Axcet, our CEO was hoping to find an HR Consultant that more aligned with his goals for our organization. But also we left because we had a connection at another company and wanted to give them business. We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not present at the other PEOs. It would take much longer to get the most simple questions answered or to get a report that we needed. One of the PEO’s portal was the exact same as Axcet’s but they had everything locked down where we would have to ask them for certain things. Again, then it would take forever when before I was used to doing it myself. We came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help.
