INITIAL SET-UP

Getting started is easy.

In all instances, if your processing payroll for the first time or coming to Rothrock from another payroll processor, Rothrock will make sure you are;

  • Properly enrolled in the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS).
  • Remitting withholding taxes in the manner and time frame required for each jurisdiction; federal, state and local.
  • Enrolled in state and local electronic payment systems when available.
  • In monopolistic worker's compensation states, we secure enrollment in discount programs such as group rating, drug-free workplace and others whenever possible.

IF YOU ARE PAYING EMPLOYEES FOR THE FIRST TIME

Rothrock will obtain employer withholding account numbers and accomplish all appropriate registrations with federal, state and local authorities. For each employee to be paid, Rothrock will provide all the forms needed including;

  • New Hire Reporting.
  • Federal withholding - Form W-4.
  • State withholding forms.
  • Employment Eligibility Verification - Form I-9
  • Direct Depoit Authorizations

IF YOU HAVE PAID EMPLOYEES IN THE PAST

Provide copies of (a) the reports from the most recent pay run and (b) the most recent payroll tax returns and Rothrock will extract the employee and employer information needed. We will replicate your last payroll to ensure accuracy. If necessary, and after all pertinent information has been acquired and updated, Rothrock can concurrently mirror the payroll processing of your existing provider.
