Share Article

The interactive webinar, set to take place Oct. 24, is suited for a wide variety of professionals within the construction community, including union and non-union contractors, owners, estimators, controllers, chief financial officers, payroll processors, office managers, business development experts, and professionals involved in accounting and consulting. The program, co-hosted by WPL Publishing and L2 Federal Resources, is pending approval for 1.5 American Institute of Architects learning units.

Washington, DC (Vocus) October 11, 2013 – WPL Publishing and L2 Federal Resources later this month will co-sponsor a webinar to help professionals within the construction community understand and comply with certified payroll requirements for their government-funded projects.

When contractors make the move from residential/commercial construction projects to government-funded construction projects, which have certified payroll reporting requirements, it can overwhelm them, their office staffs, and the accounting professionals supporting them. These often-complex requirements can lead to major problems, including denial of payment, non-approval of payment requisitions, and contract termination. The webinar focuses on federal WH-347 reporting requirements (which then can be translated to state-specific prevailing wage mandates), helping attendees understand the “ins and outs” of what they need to do in this area. To register for the 90-minute event, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/m88ww8a.

This webinar, entitled “Certified Payroll/Prevailing Wage Reports: A Practical Guide to Compliance,” will help attendees do the following, among other things:

  • Understand how to comply with labor standards and payroll reporting requirements
  • Identify “electronic or online” certified payroll filing requirements
  • Know how to complete a federal WH-347 certified payroll report and statement of compliance, and apply this knowledge to state-specific requirements
  • Evaluate methods for tracking employee time and work classifications
  • Request additional “trade/work classifications” and wage rates
  • Identify typical errors that require correction
  • Learn common methods for creating certified payroll reports, statements of compliance, and other documentation
  • Automate these time-consuming, error-prone tasks

Addressing webinar attendees will be certified payroll expert Nancy Smyth, who has been working with commercial/government construction contractors for more than 20 years, primarily focusing on contractors who use QuickBooks Financial Software and who must adhere to ever-changing prevailing wage laws. As president of Sunburst Software Solutions Inc., she is a key player in the development of several QuickBooks add-ons for the construction industry. In addition, she writes the “QuickBooks for Contractors” blog.

Following Ms. Smyth’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
