Cost allocation compliance

  • Cost allocation to programs, grants and other cost centers is one of the basic aspects of nonprofit accounting.
  • Few payroll services provide cost allocation with full understanding of end reporting needs of nonprofit clients. Many services do not provide this service at all, forcing the nonprofit to accomplish this task manually.
  • Payroll for Nonprofits provides numerous tools, each suited to the varied needs of our clients.
  • We provide reports, such as all payroll hours and costs allocated to one program over any time period including multi-year reports.

Grant & Program Reporting

Nonprofits increasingly have to be able to provide documentation on how employee time has been spent on specific grants and programs. Our experience in this area enables us to setup our payroll system to provide your organization with this reporting. Sometimes the funding source requires timecards documenting where an employee has spent their time. With Payroll for Nonprofits, you can print timecards and reports at any time. Be confidently prepared for those audits with a minimum of work!

We have numerous time keeping solutions that we can customize to fit the needs of your organization.

  • Reports to funders often are an important and time consuming aspect of grant compliance.
  • Our payroll service has hundreds of reports that make grant reporting easy.
  • For example, we provide fiscal year or inception to date reports for a specific grant. Or, we can provide fiscal year reports on all grants, including hours.
  • Not all clients are the same, and all have differing ways of tracking and reporting grants. We work with your organization to provide the reports you need.

I have been most pleased with the personal touch and the local knowledge within Payroll Network. Our organization has seen far fewer payroll issues since switching to Payroll Network from a large, national provider and whenever we do have issues, they are quickly resolved.
I don’t give referrals very often, but when I have a service provider that consistently performs the way Payroll Network does, I’m happy to let the world know.

We’d like to help you succeed.
