If you are a lawyer in a smaller firm, you need every ounce of time from yourself and your employees to devote to your cases, so the day to day responsibilities of running the business side of your practice can get in the way of progress sometimes. For this reason, many firms turn to a payroll services provider to help them with tedious but important business tasks.

Our company has helped law firms, doctor’s offices, contractors, engineers and countless other types of small businesses focus on their operations and achieve compliance by offering comprehensive payroll services. In this article, we will answer a few FAQs about our service and give you an idea of how we can help your firm perform at a higher level by taking on your payroll operations.


What are payroll services?

Payroll is a complex and tedious part of any business with more than one or two employees, and it’s critical for payroll to be done correctly. A payroll services company takes on the entire operation and creates a layer of separation between the company and its employees, plus another one between the company and the IRS. Payroll services consist of paying employees on time and accurately, calculating all tax withholdings and other deductions, providing payroll data, paying taxes and ensuring compliance and other key functions related to compensation.


How does a payroll provider help a small business?

Smaller law firms and other small businesses often can’t afford to hire someone to focus on payroll, and tasking another employee with payroll plus their normal job duties is a recipe for errors. By hiring a payroll provider, a small business owner can rest easy knowing a team of experts is in charge of paying their people, and these experts are constantly learning and staying on top of all local, state and federal tax laws.


Why should lawyers use a payroll provider?

Lawyers more than anyone else understand the concept of liability, and one reason to use a payroll services company is the added layer of protection you gain by allowing our team to process your payroll. It also limits fraud, increases morale, gives your team back crucial time and is almost always cheaper in the long run than trying to process payroll in-house.
