Why have many accountants stopped payroll processing?

Exiting payroll processing has been a natural progression for many years and now has been emphasized the past 3-5 years. Software brought some perceived opportunity to payroll services in the '80s and '90s, but the advancing complexity of payroll and timing requirements continue to force, or require, accountants to consider outsourcing or exiting payroll services to industry professionals.

Additionally, an increase of efficiency had been proven once payroll was separated from traditional accounting, tax, audit and consulting services, greatly benefiting the accounting firm.


Why has payroll become more complicated for accounting firms?

There are 5 main factors that have made payroll more complicated for accounting firms.

  • Need for more sophisticated user driven software
  • The client needs for more workforce resources
  • Tax regulation
  • New state compliance rules
  • New federal compliance and credit rules
