Learn About Our Services

Contra Costa Payroll Services - QuickBooks Payroll

At Smeed CPA, our value proposition is based on understanding our clients’ businesses and their goals and using our services to contribute to their success. When it comes to payroll, we understand the impact this most basic element of the employer-employee relationship has on employee engagement and motivation. We also understand that an effective payroll process starts with, but goes well beyond issuing a timely and accurate paycheck.

  • We help our clients process payroll quickly and accurately. Motivated employees are generally more productive and make greater contributions to the achievement of a company’s goals. An environment where employees aren’t paid on time or their pay is incorrect creates a significant obstacle to employee motivation.

Our payroll services cover the basics in a highly effective manner. This includes calculating employee gross pay for a pay cycle based on hours / salary and bonuses, calculating their paycheck after withholdings, payroll taxes, and deductions, and paying employees via direct deposit or printing checks.

  • We help our clients prepare and submit payroll taxes. Statistics from the Small Business Administration show the three major penalties the IRS levies against small businesses relate to failure to file payroll tax returns, failure to deposit tax withholdings, and the failure to pay the company’s portion of payroll taxes. Consequences for violating these basic principles of payroll tax compliance can be dire, including severe penalties, business interruption, and federal criminal investigation.

These penalties can be easily avoided with the consistent, reliable process for managing payroll such as that provided by Smeed CPA. We know the common payroll tax audit triggers and apply that knowledge to help our clients avoid the severe consequences of payroll tax compliance issues.

  • We help our clients keep employee information organized. A workforce of any size generates a significant amount of data that must be maintained for new and continuing employees. At Smeed CPA, we help our clients maintain that data to run their business and maintain compliance with financial institution and tax authorities requirements. Our efficient and effective payroll management process ensures this information is easily accessible and ready to use.

We deliver our payroll services using Intuit’s highly rated cloud-based payroll software. While there are many payroll software programs in the market, we chose Intuit because it provides the advanced functionality our clients need and demand. This functionality includes the ability to manage multiple pay schedules, direct deposit into two accounts for one employee, manage sick/vacation days and accrue over-time and paid-time-off. It also has a tight integration with Intuit’s Quickbooks, which many of our clients find to be an indispensable tool in bookkeeping and  accounting activities.
