|Payroll tax audits are increasing at both the state and federal levels. Whether due to clerical errors in handling garnishments, fringe benefits, travel pay, etc., or a specific government focus on things like executive compensation or the use of independent contractors, these audits usually result in assessments for unpaid payroll taxes.
A proactive review of your payroll department can catch some potential mistakes - however inadvertent - but also save your organization from fines or penalties.
This training session will teach you where do you start, what to look for, and what you should do once you find a mistake!
By attending this audio conference, you will learn:
- How to determine the scope and potential areas of focus for your audit
- Common areas where mistakes or issues can normally be found
- How a review can help you detect internal control issues
- How to identify any areas of concern prior to an external audit or an audit by another group within your company
- Where to go to for assistance so you are not re-creating the wheel
- How to devise a game plan for what you want to review, and how to divide and conquer
...and as always, this session will be interactive, so we'll be able to answer your questions on this topic throughout the presentation!
