Small business owners need to find the most time and cost-efficient solutions for their businesses, so it's natural that they want the same for managing the business of their personal lives
Glenview, IL (PRWEB) January 11, 2008
Online payroll provider SurePayroll announced today that it now offers a service that allows household employers to process payroll online, with all tax deposits, filings and W2s handled automatically for them.
SurePayroll already offers a simple, friendly and affordable way for small businesses to process their payroll, now they are extending the same benefits to sole proprietors who hire personnel to help assist them with personal needs such as childcare, home nursing, household management, housekeeping, landscape maintenance and other services.
Seeking more time to devote to running their businesses, busy business owners are prime candidates for outsourcing aspects of their personal life. SurePayroll's new service was created at the request of a growing number of customers who want to pay their household employees in the same easy way they pay their small business employees.
SurePayroll President Michael Alter says the demand for this service follows a national trend of people choosing services that simplify their lives.
"Small business owners need to find the most time and cost-efficient solutions for their businesses, so it's natural that they want the same for managing the business of their personal lives," he says. "That's why they've turned to SurePayroll to take care of all aspects of personal employees' payroll. Not only can they process payroll in minutes, they don't have to spend time on tedious tax details."
The service is available to any household employer whose business is classified as a sole proprietorship who expect to pay employees $1,600 or more a year in wages. In order to avoid the security risks of business owners using their social security numbers as the way to identify their business to the IRS, SurePayroll recommends that household employers obtain a Federal Employment Identification Number (FEIN) before signing up for the service. Household employers can easily obtain an FEIN by requesting one through the IRS Web site -- http://www.IRS.gov.
With SurePayroll, household employers do not have to make regular tax deposits, file quarterly and annual reports, or prepare W2s or 1099s at year-end -- SurePayroll's service includes and automatically manages these tasks. Employers go online each pay period, enter hours, preview their payroll and click "approve." The entire process takes most people less than 5 minutes per payroll, and payroll reports are available online almost instantaneously.
With SurePayroll, household employers are able to give their employees the same convenient pay methods small business employees get with SurePayroll. They can pay their employees by direct deposit and their employees are automatically notified of payment by email. Or, if employees do not wish to receive direct deposit, employers can print checks from home. Employees have access to their personal payroll information, pay stubs and W2s online - the employer does not have to be home to administer payroll data.
