Payment & Delivery Options
By partnering with multiple local and national couriers, we can hand-deliver payroll checks and reports to employers all across the United Sates. In the New York area, we also offer same-day delivery by hand.
80% of CHS clients now opt for paperless delivery sent via email or posted online for client access through their private portal (ESS). Actual checks are delivered via email for a totally electronic processing solution. We also provide you with free check stock, enabling you to print payroll checks from the convenience of your own office. Many clients also choose paperless quarterly reports and W2s. Automatic copies are sent to selected parties such as CPAs and controllers.
E-vouchers are available for employees with direct deposit. For clients wanting direct deposits without bank accounts, we supply auto-refill debit cards. Employee Self Service (ESS) and Manager Self Service (MSS) entail delivery via email with clients accessing checks themselves. Advantages include a 2-3 hour turnaround time, onsite delivery to employees, and a “green” component (no trucks on road).
Our Secure Seal checks are pressure sealed for improved security – employees must break the seal. As with all check options, Secure Seal checks can feature the company logo and signature, as well as employee-specific memos.
Under the one check option (OBC), CHS creates a special bank account for managing, reconciling and funding all payroll monies. We then debit one lump sum from the client. In addition to significant time savings with bank reconciliation, this service also greatly mitigates risks associated with check fraud.
Software Integration and Custom Reporting
Whether you want to export your payroll data to QuickBooks or any other major accounting software, we offer a host of options that ready your data for exporting in a variety of formats. With 4 veteran accountants on staff, CHS utilizes its keen grasp of all bookkeeping and accounting software to help clients take the guesswork out of setting their programs up for seamless integration.
