Make sure your new payroll account is all set before the due date. We initiate and conduct the procedure of new ID registration on your behalf. Following ID registration, a new payroll account will be opened on behalf of your new company.
Ensure legal compliance and avoid felony offences on the officers. Escrow packages ensure every document is timely signed by the officer in charge and prevent non-disclosures of transactions.
Proper and timely reporting guarantees you meet timelines between the state, the payroll company and your own company. Get payroll up timely to avoid a 10% financial penalty for not meeting the deadline.
Get assistance with challenges surrounding state and local tax reporting, reciprocity, late deposit and out of balance notices, filings and amendments, penalty abatement, negative agency communication received, audit representation, account collection, levy notices, and other employment tax areas where expertise is required.

This is how our analysts manage the projects on your company’s behalf using our latest employment tax technology:
If information is changed mid-project, the system recalculates everything and presents new statistics in real time. All the work performed will allocate itself toward the changes, eliminating time waste due to data reorientation.
The system flags all the critical items in a project, marking them as the priority items that need to be done in an allocated timeline. It also shows how many hours need to be allocated to those items ensuring timely and successful project management.
You do not have to leave your office or even dial a number to order new registration projects. Choose the type of project you want us to finish on your company’s behalf and the system will send an automatic email noticing us about your order.
See what had been done, what is still in process, or what is not started yet. Export reports in Excel for further reporting convenience.

Rely on real time information within the reporting system. Reporting graphs show the percent of project completion, number of filed items, and items to be filed.

We perform due diligence reviews prior to acquisition to determine any predecessor liabilities or potential employment tax exposures not disclosed or reflected in the target company’s financial records.
For employee migrations (whether M&A-based or otherwise), we conduct a thorough state-by-state analysis, identify relevant legal statutes, review “common control” issues and tax impacts, determine effective employee migration treatment and reporting requirements, and file all required registration and status forms. In short, we oversee the migration from start to finish, ensuring optimal tax status and 100% compliance.
We work directly with predecessors to acquire the necessary data for an efficient transition.
We carefully assess the employee migration to take advantage of our client’s rights for optimal tax treatment while streamlining transitions, present and future.
Our best-practice protocol includes systematic execution of clearly defined milestones, framed by our client’s strategic needs.
As the “point people” for transitions, we draw together payroll, finance, human resources, and outside vendors with clear communication.
Where necessary, we can conduct a comprehensive vendor review, recommending the optimal mix of vendors for the client’s unique needs.
Pricing for MACS is based on a fixed-fee determined by the number of legal entities involved, the number of state reporting points, event structure, and timing. Our fees are often subsidized, if not paid for in full, by the refunds and savings generated by our work.
Employee migrations and related rights are subject to a complex
myriad of tax laws. We handle the comprehensive process on your
Identify eligible recoveries triggered by historical M&A and prior employment tax account activity, still within statutes of limitations.
Uncover outstanding and potentially unrecognized compliance issues, and limit penalties and interest while maintaining compliance.
Conduct a STAR review in the wake of an acquisition, merger, divestiture, IPO, other public or private sale of securities, or any other event where unrecognized or undisclosed liabilities or compliance issues could result in serious legal or financial exposure.
Prevent tax overpayment that results from commonly overlooked errors, such as incorrect reporting numbers or duplicate reporting.
Do not overlook employment tax rights that come along a change in corporate status to an LLC or LLP.
The STAR program is appropriate for any employer with 1000+ employees. Establish an employment tax health baseline for your company and recover overpayments through comprehensive overall employment tax account analysis.
Emptech has performed thousands of STAR reviews, netted millions of dollars in employment tax refunds, determined areas of open reporting and compliance issues, and identified process improvements for our clients.
