For employees, payday is the reward for one or more weeks of hard work. For payroll and accounting professionals, there are a few more steps before the work is actually completed!
On each employee’s paycheck – there are amounts withheld typically for:
- Federal/State mandated withholding
- Social Security/Medicare
- Insurance & voluntary deductions
- Child Support & garnishments
Payment of these withheld amounts – plus any employer-provided or matched items – falls on an Accounts Payable process.
FundView Payroll automates the payments of withheld amounts by creating Accounts Payable invoices with pre-determined payment dates according to each type of deduction. Here’s how that saves time for our users:
- Payments are created by the payroll system and automatically sent to Accounts Payable each payday. Payments are pre-distributed to the appropriate expense and liability accounts according to each employee’s designated charging department (or split departments).
- Employer-paid benefits are also charged appropriately and applied to employee tax records at year-end in compliance with Affordable Care Act and other reporting requirements on the W-2s.
- Payments that are automatically withdrawn from the organization’s bank now have automatically generated entries to dovetail the bank reconciliation processes.
- Refunded deductions create Accounts Payable credit memos to offset previous invoices. Appropriate General Ledger entries are also generated to adjust the expense and liability accounts.
