What Payroll Vendors Are NOT Telling You About Same Day ACH

Paycor offers Same Day ACH to clients—just like many other vendors. But here’s what others are not telling you.

What is Same Day ACH?
With Same Day ACH, employers now have more flexibility and accuracy in issuing direct deposit payments. Employees can now receive deposits on the same day that payroll is initiated, while last-minute adjustments are no longer an issue when ensuring the right payday amount is deposited.

The Fine Print
Some payroll vendors are touting Same Day ACH as a product enhancement that they are uniquely offering. Others are emphasizing the positive aspects but failing to call out the limitations and restrictions.

*#1 Same Day ACH is not like wiring cash to an employee
Keep in mind your employees will not receive money in real time. Promising otherwise can lead to serious complications. Same Day ACH deposits would be available to ensure proper bank funds, for example, but employees wouldn’t have those funds to make a purchase or buy lunch. An employee’s bank won’t be required to fund the account before the end of their processing day, but Same Day ACH acts as a placeholder in the account to guard against overdrafts and the like.

*#2 Restrictions do apply
No international items or deposits are eligible for Same Day ACH. Deposits over $25,000 are also ineligible.

*#3 Complications exist
Payroll funds need to be wired by clients to vendors before banks will send the direct deposits.

*#4 Additional fees apply
Processing Same Day ACH deposits cost more to process for banks, which lead to fees normally not charged.

What is a W-4 Form?

What is a W-4 Form?

What is a W-4 Form? W-4 forms are essentially very basic tax returns filled out by employees. Specifically, it tells employers the correct amount of tax to withhold from the employee’s paycheck. Need a W-4 Form? Download it here. Why are W-4s important? The accuracy of an employee’s W-4 submission will determine the size of their tax refund (or bill) at the end of the year. The amount withheld should be as close as possible to their actual tax obligation—a big deficit can be an unwelcome surprise and may be accompanied by further penalties. Withholding more than necessary is considered by some employees as an easy way to save but, while refunds may seem like a nice treat, you are taking away the chance for employees to invest (or use)...

W-2 Employer Responsibilities

W-2 Employer Responsibilities

What is a W-2 Form? W-2 forms are an important part of employees’ tax filings, listing all wages and salary paid along with the amounts withheld for taxes and benefits. W-2 forms include information about your business and employee details along with how much employees earn (including tip income), how much they withhold for tax (as specified on their W-4 form) plus social security and Medicare contributions, also factoring in retirement and special benefits plans. A W-2 form is required for all employees. However, for independent contractors, for whom taxes are not withheld, an employer is required instead to submit a 1099-MISC form, which simply reports payments.
