Our compliance team can:

  • Assess liability and risk exposure
  • Advise on cross-jurisdiction (U.S. and Canada) payroll and operations
  • Validate tax calculations, rates, and withholdings
  • Assess remittance schedules and internal processes
  • Bring your reporting and returns timelines into correct schedules
  • Ensure your workers’ compensation assessments and practices are accurate
  • Help you manage severance packages and related issues
  • Help manage retiring allowances
  • Conduct a general review of employment agreements or non-employment contracts
  • …and much more.

Ensuring your company’s compliance has never been more important. In the U.S. and Canada, payroll compliance is getting more complicated each year.

Auditors and governments are more attentive to violations, and regulations are more difficult (sometimes impossible) for companies to manage on their own. Many companies have no idea where they’re out of compliance to begin with.

In this environment, expert audits and advising are crucial for avoiding significant risk and penalties. We find that our compliance consulting often provides remarkable peace of mind — so you can focus on other more strategic issues.


From the first hour when our data dictionary was revealed to the last hour when we were discussing improvements to dashboards, this workshop was a win for my team. It will return exponentially on our time investment.”
