41. WOTC Screening

WOTC Screening

Switch to paperless screening and identify any potential Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) candidates in your pool with our integrated WOTC screening functionality. Instead of processing and submitting dozens of forms to the State Workforce Agency, our automated templates collect the relevant information from your new hires and send it in for you. This process saves you time, money, and labor, all while potentially bringing in tax credits you may have missed screening the old-fashioned way.

 

34. Business Resources

Tax Credits For Businesses

WOTC and similar programs can provide tax credits for your company. WOTC, in particular, can bring in up to $9,600 per new hire! With our automated onboarding software, you don’t have to worry about screening each new employee or forgetting to submit the paperwork. We handle the process from start to finish to earn you the maximum tax credit your business can earn for each new hire. 

 

44. ACA Automation

ACA Automation

Keeping track of ACA eligibility across your team of full and part-time employees can be overwhelming, and every business should have a keen interest in staying compliant with IRS tax requirements. Take the guesswork out of your system with our ACA automation! As a standard on our list of onboarding features, ACA automation tracks your employee’s hours, automatically sends updates about eligibility status, and even files with the IRS, all with no hassle on your end!
