Course description

Payroll Accounting Best Practices

Payroll costs are the largest expense of any organization, and payroll accounting involves much more than ensuring the debits equal the credits.

A solid process for accurate and compliant payroll accounting must include knowledge and understanding of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations and taxation, audit controls, and data security. With the emergence of the remote workforce, understanding these issues becomes more critical. Do you have a disaster recovery plan? Is there a solid flow of information between payroll, human resources, accounting, and IT? Failure to understand these basic principles could result in fraud, penalties, and interest for noncompliance, loss of reputation, and even the demise of your business. Learning the regulations, knowing what data security tools to have in place (including a disaster recovery plan), and implementing audit controls are vital to the financial and employee health of your company. You will be provided with the information and tools you need to develop and maintain a solid and accurate system of controls, policies, and procedures. Protect your business, your data, your money, and your employees.

Who should attend?

This live webinar is designed for payroll managers, human resource and benefits professionals, controllers, CFOs, accountants, bookkeepers, and business owners.
