Payroll is a necessary business component whether you have one employee or a thousand, but confidently and accurately managing your payroll can be a challenge – 35% of companies registered with the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) receive a penalty because of incorrect or untimely payroll tax payments. Kemper 1st Choice Payroll takes the guesswork out of payroll processing and administration. Our services are designed to simplify the payroll process, from time entry and check processing to tax payment and filing. We bring the added benefit of certified accounting professionals, giving you a comprehensive solution to your payroll service needs.

Payroll Preparation Services

Kemper 1st Choice Payroll services include audits throughout the payroll process to assist in catching errors before they are made. The “sneak preview” of the employee’s payroll amounts allow you to view the payroll before it is processed. Also, outsourcing creates an environment where managing the payroll process is the focus instead of processing the payroll which further increases opportunities to improve accuracy and streamline the process.
