Q & A With Caryn Delligatti, Advantage Sales Assistant
1. What is online reporting?
Online reporting is a feature we offer to our clients as well as the CPA community we serve. It allows a client and/or a CPA of a client to access their reports instantaneously online. In fact, most of our tax reports are available online before you receive the delivery of the physical documents. Online reporting also has access to W-2s and quarterly tax forms organized by year for as long as you are signed up for the service.
2. I don’t want to process my payroll online but can I still sign up for online reporting?
Absolutely. We want our clients to process their payroll however they feel comfortable. Using online reporting will enhance your payroll experience; by using online reporting not only can you quickly and easily reprint your payroll statements and monthly reports but the accessibility of having the information at your fingertips will save you time and energy.
3. I’m not good using a computer but I have many employees who need additional copies of their W-2s. Is online reporting easy to use?
Our online reporting product is very user friendly. Simply log in and use a drop down menu to navigate to the reports you would like. It’s as simple as selecting the report and hitting print.
4. How can I get my CPA signed up for online reports?
You can call your Advantage customer service representative and tell them you want your CPA to have access to Advantage Payroll’s online reports. We just need your CPA’s contact information and your signature allowing them access to your reports. Then we will send them a password to log in to the system and they will have access to all the reports they need going forward. No more worrying about making sure your CPA gets copies of all your reports!
5. I’m the payroll contact for 8 accounts with Advantage. Do I need a separate username for each one?
Not at all. You create one username and become a multi-client user. Just enter your username and password and all of your accounts will appear. You must select the account that you are looking to get the reports for and chose your reports from there.
6. I just got set up for online reports, where do I log in?
Go to www.LIAdvantage.com, click on the “client access” button and click on the “Instant Payroll” button to log in and start viewing your reports!
