What is Payroll and Why is it Important for Your Business?

A payroll is a company's list of its employees, but the term is commonly used to refer to:

  • the total amount of money that a company pays to its employees
  • a company's records of its employees' salaries and wages, bonuses, and withheld taxes
  • the company's department that calculates and pays these.
  • Payroll in the sense of "money paid to employees" plays a major role in a company for several reasons.

From an accounting perspective, payroll is crucial because payroll and payroll taxes considerably affect the net income of most companies and because they are subject to laws and regulations (e.g. in the US, payroll is subject to federal, state, and local regulations).

From a human resources viewpoint, the payroll department is critical because employees are sensitive to payroll errors and irregularities: Good employee morale requires payroll to be paid timely and accurately. The primary mission of the payroll department is to ensure that all employees are paid accurately and timely with the correct withholdings and deductions, and that the withholdings and deductions are remitted in a timely manner. This includes salary payments, tax withholdings, and deductions from paychecks.

Accounting for Credit Card Reconciliations

We specialize in Credit Card Reconciliations for businesses in Columbus, Ohio. Many of the companies we serve in Columbus and central Ohio use credit cards to make purchases for their business, and they will need a proper reconciliation of those accounts.

Those authorized to use a company credit card should save all paper receipts from any transactions. Our staff of QuickBooks advisors in Columbus will match each receipt to the monthly statement generated by the credit card company. This will assure that all transactions are legitimate. Any suspicious charges to the credit card can be investigated. A proper credit card reconciliation should be done for each credit card in use. This will provide the business owner with the assurance that the credit cards are being used solely for their intended purpose.

Take advantage of our newly developed app, AutoKept, which will allow you to photograph and voice record a memo for all of your business receipts. The information is stored permanently and can be retrieved remotely by our bookkeepers when reconciling your credit card accounts. Our Columbus, Ohio staff of accountants and reconciliation consultants will prepare your credit card reconciliations and help you achieve Perfect Balance in your credit card accounts.
