The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free QuickBooks-Processing Payroll seminar on Tuesday, December 1 from 6 until 9 pm in the College’s Auditorium.

Preparing payroll in any small business can be a daunting task. Whether you have one employee or 20, the federal and state requirements are often the same. However, by using the payroll feature in the QuickBooks desktop product, you can master efficient techniques for setting up employees, creating paychecks, paying taxes, and generating forms and reports quickly and easily.  

The seminar will start with an introduction to Payroll and Taxes and what it means to ‘do payroll.’ Participants will learn how to prepare for the payroll process by finding the needed information on the Internal Revenue Service, NCDOR and Employment Security websites, from the details of complying with withholding requirements for taxes to the process for applying for an employer identification number and other state identification numbers. The class will review all aspects of how to set up, maintain, and process payroll for employees in the QuickBooks desktop product.

Presenter is Jeffrey Weathers of Integrity Bookkeeping Services. Weathers is a certified Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor. He is a member of the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) and the national Association of Certified QuickBooks Advisors (NACQA).
