Holiday Payroll Guide – Year End Survival Series Pt. 2

It’s time for part two of the year end survival series. In case you missed it, last week we touched on ensuring all employee information is accurate prior to year-end. This week we’re going to be taking a step back from year-end filings to provide some timely holiday payroll tips. We’ve created some great resources to help you stay on top of things through this incredibly busy time of year.

We have created a simple chart to help you plan your direct deposit payroll over the holidays. With the extra bank holidays at this time of year, you will need to be extra diligent to ensure your employees get paid on time. Check out our guide here: Holiday payroll planning guide.

Employers often give holiday or year-end bonuses at this time (’tis the season). We’ve created a resource to show you just how easy it is to add a bonus to an employee’s pay: Setting up a 2014 holiday bonus.
