Payroll automatically generates accurate labor costs by calculating all your accruals as well as basic pay items on a line-by-line basis for every timecard. Even liability insurance and small-tool costs can be included in the payroll calculations and automatically posted to job costs. You also can include any of the standard 401k, 408k, "cafeteria," and qualified benefit plans to save money on payroll taxes and workers' compensation.
Payroll supports all workers' compensation systems, including split rates, hourly calculations, and employee and employer portions (not all states). Special reports are available for states with different workers' compensation calculations, such as Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.
With the Sage 100 Contractor unique Form Design feature, you can create check stubs to accommodate your special needs and you can print compliance documents for employees. Use the payroll system's magnetic media reporting capability for generating W-2s electronically.
You can set up payroll calculations to override basic employee calculations, calculate only for certain localities, or use other calculations and create calculations for specific unions.
The paygroup function enables you to set up a benefit system and assign it to a paygroup. Then you can use the paygroup on any timecard line-the pay rates and benefits will be included automatically and override the regular employee rates. By taking credit for your qualified benefit plan, you'll never pay more than is necessary on prevailing wage jobs.
The Certified Payroll function gives you full credit for your qualified health or pension plan. The report is available in a number of formats, including minority and special state reports. Employee time can be categorized as exempt while on the job, as in the case of an employee working in your shop to fabricate materials.
For large payrolls, we offer daily field and staffing reports. Daily Payroll can be integrated with equipment management for allocation of equipment repair time and equipment cost to project costs so you can better manage the details of your business.
Labor costs, federal and state taxes, and much more are just a few mouse clicks away. All Sage 100 Contractor reports can be customized for your specific needs.
Take advantage of the report drill-down capability to navigate to the numbers and background detail behind the scene. You can also update the information in real time for accurate, up-to-the-minute analysis.
