Intuit Online Payroll
adds new options
COSTCO’S PAYROLL SERVICES provider, Intuit, is
launching two new options this month for its
popular small-business Online Payroll service:
pay-as-you-go workers’ compensation insurance and online time tracking.
Pay-as-you-go workers’ compensation
In most states, workers’ compensation
insurance is required by law. It provides coverage for an employee who has suffered an injury
or illness from job-related duties.
The pay-as-you-go option is a convenient
way to pay workers’ compensation insurance
premiums. Small businesses can improve cash
flow with no upfront premium payments, and
can avoid the hassle of year-end audits and
writing manual checks. Premiums are based on
actual payroll data, so the risk of a surprise bill
at the end of the year is minimized.
Intuit works with several leading insurance
carriers, such as Travelers, The Hartford and
others, to provide competitive rates for the pay-as-you-go workers’ compensation service.
Online time tracking
Intuit Online Time Tracking can save
employers time and help them avoid errors.
