certified payroll solutionCertified Payroll Solution provides both Union and Non-Union contractors using QuickBooks with a streamlined solution for meeting prevailing wage and reporting requirements at all levels of government subsidized work since October 2000.  Allowing contractors and their staff to focus on their business by offering convenient and accurate Certified Payroll, EEOC/Work Utilization, Arra, and Fringe Benefit reporting that relieves the hassles and stress of meeting complex federal and/or state regulations.

QuickBooks holds basic information about your employees, customers, jobs, timetracking, and payroll information.  Certified Payroll Solution holds additional information, which is required on the final reports, about your employees, jobs, payroll wage items, and deductions; that QuickBooks doesn't in linked records.  Information from both programs is then merged together to generate the final reports--without time-consuming duplicate data entry.

When used in conjunction with QuickBooks, Sunburst Software Solutions, Inc.'s Certified Payroll Solution will broaden and enhance the QuickBooks end-user experience, as well as, their return on investment; allowing for timely delivery of complex, compliance driven prevailing wage reports.  Certified Payroll Solution has proven to increase report accuracy and reduce reporting efforts up to 95%: effectively turning hours of work into minutes.
