New W-4 Coming: Should Employers be Scared?
Revised Version Set for November Release

The IRS's new W-4 - the tax form that controls an employee's withholding  - is on the way.

After initial plans for a 2019 roll-out were scrapped as a result of financial focus groups citing confusion, a revised draft was released in August this year. The final design is due in November, and employers will be expected to comply with changes by the first of the year. No grace period is being extended. 

But changes could result in various challenges for employers, such as the need to maintain two different payroll systems in certain cases.   

Our latest blog has more on these concerns . Follow the link below to read it in its entirety.

The Cost of Noncompliance Could Be Monstrous
SMBs Can't Afford Not to Toe the Line 

On average, small to medium sized business owners shell out $12K per year and a unconscionable  number of hours per month attempting to juggle HR compliance with an already towering workload. 

From striving to stay current with health, payroll, and tax regulations, to keeping   team members employed and effective, the process of remaining compliant can be tricky - particularly when you do not have a dedicated internal team to tackle such issues. 

That being said, the cost of noncompliance can be terrifying.
