Powerful Accounting is a nationally recognized accounting, tax, and QuickBooks® consulting firm that specializes in small- to medium-sized businesses. After seeing first-hand how strong ADP’s customer service is and all the dedicated programs ADP® has for accountants, including the ADP Accountant Revenue Share Program and Accountant Connect, CEO Dawn Brolin and her staff moved all their payroll clients to ADP.

If I’m going to hand my clients over to a payroll provider, I need to know they’re going to be in good hands. The more I got to understand ADP, the more I could see how much they cared about their customers and their people.

  • With a staff of only four, Dawn Brolin doesn’t want to spend her company’s time doing payroll for clients but does want to make sure they are well taken care of.

How ADP helped

  • Accountant Connect lets Dawn outsource her clients’ payroll without sacrificing control, and the Accountant Revenue Share Incentive Program provides her with ongoing revenue to compensate for whatever time she dedicates to it.

When you first get started in business, you kind of do anything to make money. In the beginning, Powerful Accounting was offering bookkeeping and in-house payroll services. But I quickly realized that payroll was not my friend. It ties you down—every quarter, you have to make sure those tax returns are completed and that they’re done correctly and all the payments are being made. If you’re doing payroll in multiple states, you’ve got to know the ins and outs of every local, city and state tax. And then there’s all the compliance headaches! I realized years ago that I didn’t want to be an expert in payroll.
