Reminder: Quarter-End Payroll Reminders
As you prepare to process your last payroll of the quarter, don’t forget to submit any quarter-end adjustments to Southland Data Processing by March 29, 2021.
After March 29, corrections cannot be processed until all returns have been filed, requiring an amendment. Our team will begin processing amendment requests for Q1 2021 and prior on Friday, May 7, 2021.
Form 7200 Reporting
If you filed any Forms 7200 to claim Employee Retention Credits (ERC) or other FFCRA leave credits, you will need to submit SDP’s Advance Payment 7200 Credit Form to us by the last day of the quarter (Mar. 31) to report them on your 941s and avoid an amendment. Be sure to carefully review the form for our updated fee schedule.
Report & Tax Form Delivery
All client copies of Q1 2021 reports will be delivered by April 30, 2021 either through SDP Connect (in the Reporting module) or via secure file download.
Please note that in our efforts to be more eco-friendly, SDP will no longer print and mail quarterly tax forms and reports for clients with SDP Connect access beginning this quarter. As always, these will be available to download from the Reporting module in your portal if hard copies are needed.
Employee & Company Maintenance
To avoid costly adjustments and amendments down the line, quarter-end is a great time to make sure all of your payroll data is up-to-date. We recommend checking in with employees to confirm their name, address, and SSN on file to ensure accurate reporting throughout the year.
Additionally, notify SDP if any company-level information has changed. (For example, your mailing address for payroll packages and poster subscriptions!)
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at (866) 946-2032 and a member of our team would be happy to assist you!
