Payroll Services for General Contractors

Serving the greater East Bay Area including Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, CA

In the ever-changing world of construction, there are many precautions a general contractor must take in order to stay compliant with laws and regulations and provide a fantastic product for their clients. Contractors have little margin for error, and in many contracting firms it takes every bit of manpower in order to succeed.

Since there are many legal considerations, building codes, local municipalities and other administrative challenges which are unique to the construction industry, the last thing a contractor needs is to carry the additional burden of everyday tasks like payroll. This is why many successful general contractors of all sizes choose to outsource payroll operations.

Our company has handled payroll and other business administration tasks for many companies in the Bay Area and across the nation. We have a team of experts who can help ensure you can focus on your business and leave the tedious tasks to us. In the sections to follow, we will discuss our services by answering some FAQs about how we can help small businesses and specifically general contractors.


What are payroll services?

A payroll services company does more than just distribute checks to employees. Payroll is a complex business function, and errors in payroll calculation can cause distrust among employees, hurt your bottom line and/or cause your company to have issues with the IRS. When you hire a payroll services company, they calculate withholdings, report and pay revenue agencies, create payroll reports, account for bonuses and overtime and take on all aspects of your payroll operation.


How does a payroll provider help a small business?

Many small to medium sized businesses choose to outsource payroll for a few key reasons. First, it’s usually cheaper and more effective to outsource rather than delegate payroll to someone in-house, and it greatly reduces the chances of payroll fraud. Also, outsourcing allows the company to allocate resources to activities which move the company forward and advance its goals. In addition, when you select a payroll services partner you don’t have to worry about keeping up with the frequently changing tax laws from the local, state and federal revenue services. Our team takes care of everything, leaving our clients with peace of mind.


Why should general contractors use a payroll provider?

General contractors have unique payroll needs, and partnering with a professional can help ensure compliance and allow them to focus on the other important aspects of their business. Contractors sometimes have pay based on project completion, a unique bonus structure and/or work with other contractors who might be 1099 employees. In any case, partnering with an expert can ensure everything goes smoothly and your people are paid correctly every time.
