As trusted advisers, CPAs are often the professionals small business clients turn to for payroll advice and services.

At the same time, CPAs must keep current with the latest laws and regulations and payroll technology. How can CPA firms benefit from partnering with payroll providers and be assured their clients’ needs are being met?

In this Special Focus Report, experts in payroll services discuss their ideas about what CPA firms should expect from payroll partners, integration questions CPA firms should ask their payroll providers, the best ways to propose payroll services to clients, the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other laws and regulations on payroll, and future technologies.
