Because no two accounting firms are the same, we’ve built flexibility into our partnership model so you can choose the one that works best for you. Whether you want to process payroll for your clients using our RUN for Partners solution, get rewarded for referring your clients or even hand off payroll duties altogether, we can accommodate you.
How quickly you switch your clients to your new payroll provider depends on your and your clients’ priorities, the services your clients are using and how quickly you can access the required data. With ADP, some customers can be up and running the same day, while others choose to make the transition over a period of weeks. Services beyond payroll may take longer to set up. Regardless, a well-done transition should never disrupt your payroll process.
Our Accountant HelpDesk has got your and your clients’ backs. You’ll have access via phone or email to dedicated payroll experts who are specially trained to support professionals like you. And with the Service Requests feature in Accountant Connect, your firm can easily and securely exchange documents with the HelpDesk team, ask questions and track the status of your requests. You can also expect an ongoing relationship with your dedicated ADP sales associate, who’s readily available to address your concerns and respond to your inquiries in detail.
Our RUN Powered by ADP platform is designed specifically for small businesses and includes affordable options that meet even the most basic payroll needs. In fact, more than 80% of our 860,000 clients are small businesses. By switching your clients to ADP, you’ll also enjoy the convenience of having easy and secure access to all your authorized small business clients’ data in one place with Accountant Connect.
Though some people prefer to wait for the start of a new quarter, or even a new year, before switching over to a new payroll service provider, ADP can support your move at any time. Any high-quality provider should be able to give you and your clients a clear list of forms and information needed to make a smooth transition.
If you or your clients are doing payroll manually now, you should expect to significantly reduce the amount of time you’re devoting to the process. How much depends on which services you choose. Do you want help tracking time and attendance? Assistance with background checks or employment verifications? Check signing and stuffing? An ADP representative can explain the different options and help your clients choose the package that best fits their business.
Different payroll providers offer different pricing structures, but certain factors — how frequently your clients run payroll, how many people they’re paying, which services are needed — will influence the cost. ADP will work with you and your clients to determine the right payroll set-up for their business, no matter how simple or complex their needs are.
