1. What are the major current issues in payroll that accountants should be aware of?

First, accountants are evaluating the services their practices provide, and we see more of them expressing an interest in getting back into payroll. As managing payroll becomes more efficient and streamlined, payroll is being viewed again as a desirable, viable, recurring revenue stream.

Second, accountants need flexibility with their payroll platform.

Finally, accountants are looking for more integrated solutions.


2. What should they do to address these issues?

Rather than perform all the calculations and filing on their own, accountants can leverage new technology and partners like ADP and have that work done for them while still maintaining the direct relationship with their clients.

For those customers that need flexibility, a Web-based service, such as RUN Powered by ADP Payroll for Accountants®, addresses those needs.

RUN integrates with other services such as ADP's time and labor management solutions and our Pay-by-Pay Premium Payment Program for Workers' Compensation.
