Year-End QuickBooks Payroll Processing Checklist

Now that the major rush of the holiday season is over, it’s time to process year-end payroll.  Our QuickBooks customers turn to us to help them with payroll processing because there is already too much to manage in their businesses, especially at year-end.  If you are processing your own payroll, you know there are a lot of details, deadlines, special procedures, and new laws and forms to consider.  Simply put, payroll is complex, time consuming, and costly if mistakes occur.  If you get it wrong, you could be subject to paying a penalty for the most common mistakes like:  failure to deposit withholdings like Social Security, unemployment insurance and Medicare, and incorrect filings or missing deadlines.  According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), last year over 40% of small and medium businesses (SMBs) paid an average of $845 in payroll penalties.  This does not take into account the cost of human capital that all SMBs pay when employing internal people to manually process payroll.
