What’s It Like Working with NTA Corporate Partner ADP?
May 31, 2011
NTA signed on for ADP’s payroll services in January. Having used the system for a few months now, Cathy Boyd, NTA’s controller and director of human resources, answered a few questions about working with ADP.
Have you used a payroll system before?
I’ve only used me. Whether I was doing payroll for 100 individuals or 13 individuals, it was all me.
You’ve been using ADP now for a few months. What do you like about it so far?
From my professional experience, being able to use ADP is a real time-saver, especially having them be responsible for so much of the reporting, like the W-2s at the end of the year. And I no longer have to prepare the quarterly/monthly payroll reports. ADP is responsible for filing all the monthly forms and payments—all that. The money is pulled out of our account, they hold it and pay it when it’s due. Then, I can go into the ADP system at any point and run the tax reports I need.
How do you get your information to ADP?
We use their online system. I can go in and do every step of the payroll process, and I can verify things along the way. I can check numbers and amounts and make changes, all before I hit that final send button. Then I can print off reports, for example, details for that single payroll or for quarterly or yearly reports that include employee as well as employer information. I can also run a sample check to show an employee how various benefit deductions will affect their paycheck.
Any other extras our members need to know about?
ADP helps keep me up to speed on changes that are coming up. For example, this morning when I came in I had an alert on my computer from ADP to tell me that, effective June 11, the Social Security Administration is going to change some of the ways they handle SSN numbers. That was something ADP pushed out to me. And they are adjusting their systems now to allow for that change in the future.
Here are the exclusive deals offered to U.S. NTA members through ADP:
