If you’re a New York business owner, you’re all too familiar with the complexities of payroll management. From navigating the intricacies of state and local tax compliance to dealing with time-consuming payroll processes, it’s enough to turn your dream enterprise into a nightmare.

This may sound extreme, but even in the best-case scenario, running payroll distracts you from running your business.

This is where Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) come into play. These arrangements provide comprehensive payroll solutions that can mold chaos into harmony. In fact, reputable PEOs like Ethan Allen HR Services can leverage the latest cloud technology to automate your payroll with ease.

A PEO Primer

PEOs function by pooling the resources of several small businesses to create a larger, stronger entity. All boats rise together in this scenario, and unlike an employee leasing business, PEOs preserve the client company’s control over employee management and operations. In other words, you will never lose workers to a PEO, contrary to any common misconceptions.

New York State has put numerous protections in place for working with PEOs. This includes an annual certification process, which calls for a quarterly audit of payrolls to protect clients. Additionally, there is a voluntary IRS certification—which Ethan Allen has—that includes an annual financial audit of the PEO, providing even further protection.

How Does a PEO Help with Payroll?

One of the top benefits of working with a PEO is the ability to outsource payroll operations, including tax filing, benefits administration, and compliance management, to experts familiar with the local regulatory landscape. It’s no picnic navigating the growing labyrinth of New York’s labor laws and tax regulations, and the right PEO can keep you from getting lost. By handling everything from calculating payroll taxes to managing employee benefits, PEOs alleviate the administrative burden that often weighs down business owners.

You can also unlock economies of scale. Smaller businesses can access better benefits and insurance rates, akin to what larger companies enjoy. This not only helps in attracting and retaining top talent but also in leveling the playing field in a competitive hiring market. By partnering with a PEO, businesses can refocus their energies on growth and development, secure in the knowledge that their payroll operations are in expert hands.
