Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Business Owners and Parents

One-Stop Resource Page

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Business OwnersHappy Friday!

Pacific Payroll Group is dedicated to helping business owners thrive throughout this journey (in any state).

You can put a link to this page on your website to help your employees access all the claim forms and news in one location.

We’re helping clients and businesses understand the changes and access all financial resources available.

We’ve been answering questions on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) which included the Paycheck Protection Program and the Families First Coronavirus Reponse Act (FFCRA), and the 1.9 trillion Covid Relief bill (The American Rescue Plan) which included another round of stimulus checks, unemployment benefits, and additional relief for small business owners.

We are keeping employers updated on the new 2022 employment law changes, minimum wage increases, and more.

We have a dedicated section on our website related to the Paycheck Protection Program, additional funding, and loan forgiveness for those who already received a loan. Or you can visit the SBA website for more information.

If you have questions on any of the topics below, we list the links that have your answers.

Questions and Claim Forms

If you still have questions, please contact us – we’re here to help.

As any new legislative guidelines come from Congress that affect employers, we will continue updating our clients and this page.

Having a payroll service with flexibility means we can move quickly to implement changes coming from Washington.

Support for Parents

Coronavirus Support for Parents

Sticking to a routine, getting a good night’s sleep, and spending time outside (if permitted) will all help. Avoiding too much news (except for this page) will also help.

A lot of our friends are having their kids spend 5 minutes a day on a “Gratitude Journal” which has helped them focus on all the wonderful things in their lives. Positive mental well-being helps with overall health.

What our clients say about us

Gordon and his team run this first class operation. Why go with the big box ADP when you can have professional, personalized services at a lower cost? It’s a no brainer.

They take care of my payroll needs for multiple locations so I can focus on growing my business. Gordon promptly responds to all my questions and concerns. He also helps me take care of additional issues like workers’ comp audits and taxes.

Julie L. via Yelp

I wish I would have known about them years ago. You call you get to talk to Gordon, you email your data into him and it gets done… like a smooth-running machine. I strongly suggest you call Gordon and start having him handle your payroll needs today.

We as business owners have enough to do without having to deal with Federal and State agencies. Put your efforts into your business that you know best, that is what makes you money.

Sharon D. via Google

We’ve been with this company for almost a year and could not be more pleased. Gordon keeps us in compliance with all of the complex employment and tax rules. He is extremely patient, committed and giving of his time and knowledge without reservation. If we need help understanding something he is always there for us.

If you’re thinking about getting someone to take over your payroll, give Gordon a call. He is more than affordable and worth every penny.

Kathleen M. via Yelp

I had stayed with a large payroll company because I thought it was difficult to change. Once my friend recommended Gordon, it was so fast and easy to switch! And my fees were cut in HALF!

And I pay nothing when they file quarterlies. And he’s a million times more responsive.
