A Word from Our CEO

January 2014

A new year has begun and may this be the best yet for your business. We hope that you enjoy the new changes to the software this year based on your feedback and the simplified install process. If you haven't noticed, you no longer have to close payroll years. The biggest perk of this is that you can run your W-2s and year-end forms anytime instead of having to squeeze them in before starting year 2014 payroll. Because we all make mistakes from time-to-time, this new feature should ease the inevitable stress that comes with the burden of tax season. As always, if you are looking to change things up for your business, our Payroll Services is becoming quite a popular option for those looking for a less hands-on option.

If you have any feedback, positive or negative, or suggestions for the future, please do send them our way. Even if we are unable to implement them in the next year's version, we do take them into account for the short, medium and long term of our product planning. 

Best regards.

Mohammed Ghani
President and CEO

Top Questions of the Quarter

How do I comply with the new Reporting of Employer Sponsored Health Care on my W2s?

Check out what to do here.

How do I file my W-2s electronically?

Before you can send the file you create in Payroll, you need to go to the Social Security Administration website and get registered to file electronically: http://www.ssa.gov/employer/

After you register, it takes 5-7 days for the SSA to send you your USER ID # you’ll need to file. Once that is received, you can setup payroll to create the file.

In Payroll:
• Click on W-2 & W-3 Statements under Reports
• Select the EFW2 File radio button and make sure “Federal” is in the drop down list
• Click on the EFW2/W3 Setup button & fill in the fields on this window. The User ID, is the number you receive from the SSA after registering. The WFID is not filled in unless this is a resubmission.

Once this screen is complete, click OK. Next, click on the “Text File” button at the top left of the window and save this file to a location where you can easily find it. Leave the name of the file as W2Report.txt. Once this is done, you can login on the http://www.ssa.gov/employer/ and follow the SSA instructions to submit the file.
