Payroll Continuity Protection

Wise consultants will work remotely with you and your team to document your payroll process so they can jump in to keep your payroll going with no lead-time if emergency strikes. Your Payroll Support contract with Wise is like an insurance policy that can be triggered at any time to seamlessly continue your payroll process when you need it, for as long as you need it.

"When our payroll manager left...it was really important to us to make sure we continued to provide excellent service to employees. Having the contract with Wise allowed us to do that. If we had not had that back-up support, it would have been a significant challenge for us to continue to provide our employees with the uninterrupted service they expect."
- Donna Casner, Vice President of Finance, National Lutheran Communities and Services

COVID-19 Regulation Configuration

New U.S. regulations that stipulate provision of paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave (FFCRA) for qualified employees are now in effect.

"FFCRA will help the United States combat and defeat COVID-19 by giving all American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide employees with paid leave, either for the employee's own health needs or to care for family members. The legislation will ensure that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus while at the same time reimbursing businesses."

The Basics

The CARES Act

On March 27th, 2020, the senate approved the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The largest economic relief bill in U.S. history, CARES aims to support individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic's economic impact.

The Basics

Quarterly Reconciliation & Year-End Preparation

Due to the various pandemic-response Acts, changes to IRS forms and the vastly increased need for tracking, auditing and reconciliation, many companies are in the position of needing an assist with the new and extra work. Wise payroll professionals are able to support clients no matter what system they use, flexing the type and amount of help to suit the situation.

Let us Help you with Year-End Preparation

941 Tracking Assistant

We support the tracking and calculation of FFCRA & CARES credits/limits for you, payroll to payroll, to ease the burden of ensuring accuracy on the new 941 forms, providing quarterly totals so you don’t exceed limits.

Tracking

Our consultants can assist you by tracking payments, credits and employer Social Security deferrals for compliant tax filing.

Quarterly Audit and Reconciliation

We support you by facilitating quarterly audits as well as reconciliation of your information to ensure not only that your year-end information is correct but also prepared in advance to prevent issues.

Reporting

We work with you to build reporting templates to make reporting easier to save you time and energy.

Mass Imports

Our consultants will work with you to facilitate the importing of large quantities of data to ensure that your reporting is pulling the correct information.

We understand that many payroll professionals don’t have time to do the:
  • extra tracking
  • auditing
  • research of pandemic-response Acts required to keep in compliance
  • work to take advantage of valuable credits
  • and prepare for a challenging year-end

*all while fulfilling their increasingly demanding job responsibilities. Wise has the knowledge to take care of all your pandemic-related tracking, auditing, reconciliation and research so you can be prepared for year-end without putting in a ton of extra time. Our team stays on top of the latest rules, form changes, regulations and limitations of the pandemic-response Acts so our clients don’t have to. Our approach to flexible, only-what-you-need managed payroll is the answer to getting help without breaking the budget.

Payroll Process Review

Problems with payroll can create big trouble for employers and contribute to employee dissatisfaction and turnover. Compliance issues are also a worry.  The first step is to take a close look and identify the root cause of the problem. Just as you would have a doctor examine a troubling health problem instead of diagnosing it yourself, it's essential to bring in an experienced professional to identify your payroll issues.

A Payroll Process Review will examine the entire sequence of events that coordinates each payroll cycle from top to bottom. Your Wise payroll consultant has seen dozens of different payroll systems in companies of all sizes, across all industries, and has personal practitioner experience. They know what to look for as they assess and document your payroll process. Your consultant will communicate key insights and recommendations about how to improve your process, giving you the knowledge you need to make it more efficient, accurate, compliant and secure.
