General Payroll Tips:

  • To ensure your employees are paid on time, please submit payroll within 24 hours of the end of a pay period or no later than 3 days prior to the check date. If you fail to specify a date, the day before a holiday is the default.
  • Please make sure all new hire paperwork and payroll changes are sent in as they occur, prior to submitting payroll.
  • Please remember to send termination reports in as soon as possible so that our records are up to date and HR has all of the information they need when answering unemployment claims.
