About a month ago, a British company hired me to work 25+ hours a week for three months, with the possibility to go full-time after that if my coworker and I land a certain number of clients. (We're opening its New York office.) Payment is a clusterfuck. [more inside]

This is not the question I wanted to ask this week, but last week, my employer forgot to submit my first time card on time, and I will (very) possibly not get paid this week. I am very poor right now. [more inside]

A friend's employer's payroll company has been incorrectly filing her payroll taxes by subtracting her healthcare costs after taxes, causing her to pay more income tax than necessary. Her boss has said she is out of luck, is there anything she can do? [more inside]

My company paid $1,000 for me to take a class, but in exchange I can't leave the company for 18 months, or I'll have to pay them back. I also have 50 hours of vacation saved up, and when I leave the company I will get those hours back as money. If I make $20 an hour, the 50 hours translate into $1,000 before taxes. My question is, will my company take their $1,000 back pre-tax, or post-tax?

My LLC is going legit January 1st in Michigan. I'm a brand new business owner in an economically depressed state and I'm starting to turn a profit which means dealing with taxes and the IRS. I'm young, I don't know anything about business taxes, and I'm somewhat frustrated at how painful this is for a new business owner who just wants to pay his fair share. I have an accountant who I know is really good, but I need to know kind of the general picture of what is happening so I can stay on top of things. I don't want to throw it all on the accountant and I want to be proactive. [more inside]

our government grant and contract based non-profit is evaluating full service (file your taxes for your) online payroll services. we expect to grow to 100 employees (many of them short term) this year. we are an organization of moderate complexity with foreign nationals on visas, etc. does anyone have any experience with online payroll services and, in particular, perquest.
we were using quickbooks online. we got switched without warning or explanation to paycycle a couple of weeks ago. paycycle seeks simplicity but lacks critical functionality for a medium size business. we need a service targetted to medium-size businesses.

If an employee makes $9.50 an hour, how much is his employer out of pocket, per hour, once you add in Social Security, Medicare, worker's comp, etc.? Please assume the employee has no benefits and no retirement contributions. This is just hourly wage + other mandatory payments.

Does anyone know how to get QuickBooks-pro to spit out a form that looks like this
? Or has all the elements of this?
Caltrans doesn’t care what order, it all just needs to be there. Is there an add-on to QuickBooks for Certified Payroll. (Already tried Sunburst: It sucks). Bonus points for low cost solution (blew my wad on the Sunburst fiasco.)

Idle Corporate Question: Has anyone here worked in a Payroll department? I know that one of the great taboos in large corporations is that nobody else knows how much everyone else makes (subordinates excluded.) But, what about a Payroll department. Do they each know how much everyone else in their department makes? Or, is their own information segmented off somehow?

I run a small design firm out of the house, with 2 employees and yearly sales of about $250K. How much should I pay for basic accounting services? He only does my taxes, I have a payroll service for payroll, and I do my own bookkeeping.

I run a small (~15 person) software development company that is reliant on tracking timesheets for invoicing and payroll purposes. We built our own internal application for doing this a few years back, but it could be working better and rather than rebuilding it ourselves I'm thinking the easiest thing would be to just license something.
Any recommendations? Timesheets suck, so ideally it should be relatively painless to use, accurate, and produce useful reports.
