2/12/2014 QuickBooks for Contractors Hangout – A Tale of Two Certified Payroll Processes

Google+ Hangouts
This hangout introduces Molly Manual and Amy Automation - two payroll clerks who are doing the same payroll and certified payroll processes - but in VERY different ways! Molly uses QuickBooks to enter employee time process payroll but is completing all of the Certified Payroll, EEOC, Dues and Fringe Benefit Reports using Excel spreadsheets. Amy uses TSheets to handle employee time tracking, QuickBooks to process payroll and Certified Payroll Solution to do all of the Certified Payroll, EEOC, Dues and Fringe Benefit Reports. This hangout discusses efficiency, time, and costs of these two very different methods of completing the same task.
