Payroll Audit FAQs
Still have questions about payroll audits? We've got the answers.
Q: What triggers a payroll audit?
A: If the government finds errors in the taxes you submit, that may trigger a payroll audit, whether you're prepared for it or not.
But in many cases, a payroll audit is triggered simply because the business owner wants to make sure that everything is accurate and that there are no undiscovered issues.
Q: Can an employee request a payroll audit?
A: If an employee thinks they've found an error in their payments or pay rate, they can absolutely request a payroll audit.
Whether you conduct a fully-fledged audit or just investigate the specific issue at hand is up to your discretion. Either way, in the interest of transparency, it's always a good idea to encourage employees to come to you with any questions or concerns they may have.
Q: What are the objectives of a payroll audit?
A: If you're conducting a payroll audit, your goals should be to verify your employees' status, make sure all your pay rates are correct, ensure you've been paying the proper taxes, and confirm that all your numbers add up.
If, after a payroll audit, you're confident in the accuracy of your payroll system, then you can consider the audit a success.
