There are many different ways to pay your employees, but the method of payment dictates whether or not you can subject it to the W-4 method, the supplemental method, or the aggregate method of withholding.
But there is more to it than just "picking one"; there are important questions that Payroll Departments must be able to answer including:
- Are employers or executives allowed to dictate how they would like their withholding performed?
- Are you allowed to pick a flat percentage based upon what your employee desires?
- Knowing when/how to use each method
...and more! But don't worry, we’ll cover your options - and answer your questions - in this interactive training session.Learning Objectives:
