Churches want to focus on their ministry. Unfortunately there are necessities to running a church that must get done. There's the payroll, paperwork, taxes, and the list goes on. So a church has to make a decision: Am I going to try and handle this in-house myself, or hire someone, or outsource to a payroll provider? Here is a list of Benefits of Outsourcing Church Payroll.
Selecting a payroll company may seem easy at first. However, a closer look at the effort, cost, liabilities, education, and ongoing training reveals some potential challenges. The greatest challenge for the church in selecting a payroll company is finding someone who is truly qualified in clergy tax law. Knowledge and experience in clergy tax law are critical. Large payroll companies may be great with payrolls of large secular businesses. However, they only provide payroll service and do not provide any guidance and adequate knowledge relating to clergy compensation, PARP, pension accounts, clergy W-2 forms, etc. A secular payroll company only knows what you tell them. If your payroll contact person does not have an accurate and up-to-date knowledge of standard tax law and clergy tax law, your payroll can become nothing more than an exercise in wrongdoing. In 2012, 60% of clergy W-2 forms were issued in error by churches and payroll companies. Ministry leaders must understand these challenges and recognize the need for industry specialists.
We have an unparalleled tax expertise on the complex issues associated with church payroll and clergy compensation. Our payroll services include "Church Tax and Payroll Support" which is not available with any other payroll company (ADP, PayChex, Cerdian, etc.). This unparalleled support plan offers the church a valuable resource for questions relating to church payroll, clergy compensation, reimbursements plans, and other tax related issues for clergy and other staff members throughout the year.
Your choice of a payroll solution will depend on a lot of things, including how many employees you have, how complex your withholdings are, how willing your designated payroll person is, and how much control you want over
