Payroll Service Fidelity Bond
Updated Feb. 16, 2023
A payroll service with a fidelity bond provides extra security to the business owner.
Smart business owners want to minimize hassles, save money, and increase their productivity. How do you do that? Outsource the time-intensive tasks like payroll, but make sure it’s with a reputable company like Pacific Payroll Group that’s not just insured but bonded.
What Is A Fidelity Bond (Dishonesty Bond)?
If a payroll provider has a fidelity bond or dishonesty bond, it helps cover you (the business owner) should the money ever go to the wrong person or entity. For example, you are protected if the wrong amounts are paid to the IRS or not paid at all.
There is no legal or state requirement that a payroll company is bonded.
Who Is Responsible for Unpaid Payroll Taxes?
If you hire a payroll company to make tax payments on your behalf, the IRS states that “In the event of default by a third party, the employer remains responsible for the deposit of the federal tax liabilities and timely filing of returns.”
So, always make sure you feel comfortable with the payroll company you choose to work with and check that they are bonded.
“A fidelity bond provides security that the payroll processor will operate according to the applicable laws and pay the taxes payable to the licensing jurisdiction for the employers they serve.“
Pacific Payroll is proud of our fidelity bond – it’s just one of the many ways we continue to be of service. We’re happy to handle payroll and all related payroll tax responsibilities (for both employees and independent contractors).
It’s added financial security for both the payroll provider and its clients. It provides a layer of added protection to anyone trusting us with their payroll services.
Also known as a surety bond, it protects you (the employer) against losses resulting from dishonest actions from a payroll agency or its employees.
Knowing you’re protected against these kinds of losses lets you focus on running your business.
