The processing of an employee’s paycheck from gross to net must be done in a strict yet varying regulatory environment. This webinar focuses on the account standard best practices for the payroll process with valuable information that will help your company avoid compliance issues and potential fines. Accounting payroll procedures help senior managers ensure that staff compensation amounts included in financial statements are accurate and complete and conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and international financial reporting standards (IFRS). IFRS and U.S. GAAP require accountants to include payroll data as expense items in the statement of profit and loss. A controller must be aware of the regulations which must be followed to ensure compliance that will prevent audits resulting in penalties, fines and interest, varying because the process is controlled by several entities on both the federal and state levels.

Education is power!  There are not many other industries, that this concept could not be truer. Some of the process such as determining gross pay is regulated by either the federal Department of Labor (DOL) or the state’s equivalent depending on which one favors the employee, while others such as when an employee must be paid is governed strictly on the state level. While still other processes such as determining taxable gross wages is controlled by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The employer is responsible for determining the correct regulation to follow for each process and ensure the proper accounting standards are in place. Reporting and depositing payroll taxes to the appropriate agency in an accurate and timely manner is vital to your company. Late or inaccurate deposits may result in penalties and interest charges. These complex payroll tax requirements may seem intimidating but by learning a few simple concepts, you will gain an understanding of the best practices accounting standards for the payment process.
