We specialize in payroll services for churches, nonprofits and small businesses. We understand the unique payroll tax laws surrounding these groups. We work hard to alleviate the payroll, accounting and reporting burdens from your volunteers and staff so you can concentrate on the work that matters most.
Church staff of 1? Church staff of 50+? We can help.
Let us help you focus on your mission by maximizing the time of your people: outsource your payroll.
When we handle payroll, you and your team will be able to get back to the business of your business.
We help you answer the question, “Are we being good stewards of the money entrusted to us?” with a resounding YES. When it comes to payroll, accuracy and timeliness is key. Add to that the complicated church and clergy payroll laws—and knowing when to pay what taxes, and when to file which reports—it can all become a headache. Allowing Forest Acres Payroll to provide payroll services for your church ensures your employees are paid accurately and on time, the payroll taxes are deposited on time, and the payroll returns are filed accurately and on time.
While many payroll companies claim they can process church and clergy payroll, we have found errors even in large companies’ payroll reporting—especially when it comes to the minister’s W-2. Errors on a minister’s W-2 can cause him or her to potentially pay much more in taxes than is necessary. We take a special eye to W-2s to ensure amounts are reported properly.
As a unique value-added benefit for our clients, we provide a free one-on-one review of the clergyperson’s compensation to ensure it is structured in a way that is most beneficial to that individual. We understand the most favorable way to structure salary and housing allowances, and know how to accurately present this information on a W-2. This review is scheduled privately with the clergyperson.
To our knowledge, we are the only payroll service that can provide this unique service to a church.
Nonprofits exist to carry out their mission. They have neither the time nor the resources to let business operations get in the way.
Outsourcing payroll services helps nonprofits maximize the time of employees, while creating third-party checks and balances within the organization. It also ensures that employees are paid accurately on time, payroll tax payments are being made on time and payroll returns are being filed on time.
Finally, and often most importantly, outsourcing reduces the chances of receiving fines and fees from the IRS and Department of Revenue, so your donors know their generous gifts are being used as they were intended.
For more than 10 years, we’ve worked to alleviate many payroll, accounting and reporting burdens from your volunteers and staff so you can concentrate on the work that makes a difference to your ministry, organization or business.
While your business may be considered “small,” there’s nothing “small” about it from a payroll perspective.
The time spent on payroll is time spent away from doing the business that brings you revenue.
Your employees expect and deserve to be paid accurately and on time, every time. When we handle payroll, you and your team will be able to get back to the business of your business.
