Calculating Paychecks 2023 - Getting To Gross And Beyond

22 Feb 2023
10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST
90 Minutes

In this online seminar, attendees will learn the difference between regular pay, gross pay, and taxable gross, all of which may be different numbers! This can prepare the payroll team to respond to questions from employees who do not understand their paychecks. We will discuss these questions: Do you know if any of your benefit plans are pretax?  If you are in multiple states, are you aware of how each state regards Section 125 or 401k plans?  What about an employer match for your 401k or 403b plan?  Do your benefits include life insurance and are you aware of how this may affect an employee’s taxable income? Do you understand what is taxable and what is also not subject to withholding? If your employees are paid hourly, do they receive the same pay for all jobs, or are there shift differentials, multiple rates, or other additions and changes to the employee’s base rate?  The online seminar will discuss methods to ensure that all possibilities are included when calculating pay. Once you have calculated gross pay and then taxable gross, you can concentrate on gross-to-net calculation.  We will examine voluntary deductions, and review limits to beliefs as well as deduction rules. If you use a vendor service or SAAS to process your payroll, we will also discuss verifying that the vendor has encompassed all your variations in their calculations. It is always better to be safe than sorry, so ensure that you can verify each employee’s pay-to-gross calculation. as well as the gross-to-net calculation.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Plowing through the many rules regarding taxable, non-taxable, and pre-tax deductions and earnings is challenging. We will help you calculate base to gross wages for multiple scenarios.  This online seminar will help you respond to the employee who cannot understand why his/her rate is $1,000 per pay period and the paystub says, “Taxable Gross=$920.00”.Do you pay hourly employees with different hourly rates for different jobs?  Do you pay employees in a state that allows pretax deductions?  Or are you in a form that does not allow pretax deductions? This online seminar can help you pay these employees correctly every time. Even if you use a payroll vendor, your team should always know how to calculate wages, to verify calculations are correct. Once you pass the “Gross” hurdle and have captured the taxable gross, you can move on to the gross-to-net calculation, highlighting voluntary deductions, the amounts available for such deductions, and net pay. This online seminar contains updated content for 2023!
