Eckhardt Accounting offers both full-service and partial service payroll preparation, depending on the needs and desires of our clients.
For our full-service payroll clients, we begin with W-4 information collected by the client from his or her employees. On a biweekly basis (every other Monday) the clients submit time records to us. Payroll is prepared on Tuesdays, and ready for retrieval and distribution on Thursday. We either print paychecks, send by direct deposit, or provide our clients with paystubs and a report of net amounts. We prepare all federal withholding, Social Security, Medicare, and federal and state unemployment deposits and their associated returns, as well as W-2’s and 1099’s. Because the government agencies are in the process of requiring all such deposits to be made electronically, we also provide this service to our clients.
Our partial-service clients write their own payroll checks and we calculate all tax payments and prepare all payroll related reports and returns.
