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.
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
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.
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.
We understand that many payroll professionals don’t have time to do the:
- extra tracking
- 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.

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.
