Get started with Wagepoint

Here we are again. Another year-end to survive means bringing back our webinars, guides and feel-good content to get you through it while keeping it together. (In other words, reducing stress and headache occurrences and making room to enjoy the holiday cheer.)

In this webinar, Wagepoint Community Manager, Bianca Mueller, walks you through working through year-end as a Wagepoint Partner. There are plenty of great details that she goes over, so be sure to watch the webinar above to get the full scope of what you’ll want to keep in mind while checking items off your year-end to-do list for each client.

Here are a few of the key points she touches on.

Don’t go into year-end unprepared.

When taking on something like payroll year-end, it’s good to go in prepared. The same is true if you’re using a payroll software like Wagepoint, so we’ve put together a short list of things you’ll want to do (or have your clients do) right now in November to get your year-end processes ball rolling.

  • Finalize at least two pay runs in Wagepoint during the 2022 calendar year.
  • Toggle on or off the Auto-submit tax forms feature in your settings per your preference.
  • Review reports, such as the Year-to-date, Remittance and the T4/T4A/RL-1 export reports.
  • Verify employee details.
  • Think early about bonus runs.

Bianca covers each of these in more detail during the webinar, or you can also read through and bookmark 5 Really Important Things You Must Do Now to Prepare for Year-End from our Year-End Survival KIT!

Don’t miss important dates and deadlines.

Knowing the when of year-end tasks is a big part of the journey. There are a number of important dates and deadlines you’ll want to consider for things like year-end forms, processing pay runs to be included for the 2022 tax year and more.

Check out Bianca’s breakdown in the webinar or check out these handy blogs in our Year-End Survival KIT.

What does year-end in Wagepoint look like?

Year-end in Wagepoint involves steps like processing pay runs in time for year-end form generation, toggling remittance options and updating figures for 2023 calculations. Consider this a short navigation guide on how to tackle a few of those tasks in Wagepoint.

Wagepoint Auto-submit tax toggle

  1. Navigate to Settings in Wagepoint.
  2. Choose Account Settings.
  3. Under Company settings, toggle the Auto-submit tax forms option.

Toggling to Yes means you’d like Wagepoint to auto-submit your year-end tax forms for you or your clients directly from within the program.

Toggling No means you’d like to handle submitting these forms yourself manually.

Note: You won’t be able to change this setting during the submission period — February 20, 2023 at 12 am ET until March 1, 2023 at 12 am ET — so be sure to make your decision before then!

  2. Choose More from the tabs.
  3. Click Workers’ Compensation.

  2. Select the Company info tab.

  1. Select Company from the orange banner bar.
  2. Choose the Company holidays tab.
  3. Click Load stat holidays.
  4. Click Add a holiday if your company observes a holiday that’s not already listed.
