Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss various types of payments and how to ensure that the information requested by payroll and provided by accounts payable is done in a professional and timely manner. The program will also concentrate on how payroll and accounts payable must work together to ensure compliance with taxation and reporting requirements.

Why Should You Attend:

Employees are often given payments for expenses or are provided benefits that may be impractical to process through payroll. These payments are processed through AP. These payments can include such disbursements as business expense reimbursements, educational assistance, auto allowances, relocation or moving expenses, club dues, medical expenses, dependent care, employee referral awards, and suggestion awards.

Some benefits do not involve direct payment to employees but may be taxable nonetheless. These include personal use of a company vehicle, in-kind dependent care, health club memberships, employer-provided meals, length-of-service and safety awards, free use of company-provided services, cell phones, Christmas or other holiday gift certificates, and employee recognition awards. This webinar will carefully address these payments and benefits and offer best practices for payroll and AP to process them.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • How sharing information all year long instead of only at year end ensures greater compliance.
  • Why payroll should make the call when deciding what is or is not taxable and reportable under the IRS rules and who gets the personal penalties if there is an error.
  • Why payroll should come to AP for the information and not vice versa and why AP should make sure they do.
  • What is the only payment off the table when it comes to taxing and reporting through payroll and why it that may not apply in all cases.
  • When De Minimis applies and when it does not when it comes to taxation.
  • When are moving expenses taxable and reportable and when only taxable or only reportable.
  • How auto allowances may be taxable one month and not the next.
  • When employee achievement awards are taxable and when they are not.
