“Buying local” is an important sentiment these days, for a variety of reasons. It drives our local economies, and keeps more money circulating in our communities.
And it’s not just your favorite coffee shop or bookstore that offers that local touch, but also your accounting, tax or payroll partner. Having a local payroll service provider means trusting someone who knows your business intimately, thanks to an ongoing relationship of mutual respect and value. This is something that you don’t get with the larger payroll service providers.
Here are three reasons why trusting a local partner is key for your business’s payroll needs:
- Talk to someone who knows your business: Many payroll services often are run out of centralized processing centers in large cities, putting an unnecessary step between the client and the provider. Having a local provider means you’re working with a dedicated accounting partner and have a direct line to troubleshoot anything that looks amiss.
- Understanding compliance: Taxes vary from state to state, so it’s important to find a partner who understands the nuances of compliance that are relative to your local community. By trusting a Padgett payroll partner, you’ll work with someone who’ll ensure you have accurate payroll tax payments and withholdings and knows these regulations inside and out (and can even advocate on your behalf!).
- Ensuring accuracy: With some of the larger providers, running payroll can be an automated process that lacks a human touch. It’s always good to have a local provider you trust, and if you work with a Padgett payroll partner you get user-friendly reports and the various tax-planning benefits that will make sure everything is running right.
