Payroll Services

Payroll services are vital to running a successful restaurant. Your employees rely on prompt and accurate payments, and if you want to keep the best members on your team, you have to deliver every paycheck.

The good news is, you don't have to manage payroll alone. Oceanview Financials has helped many businesses in Miami-Dade and other counties organize and maintain their payroll systems.

When you’re in the hospitality business, time management is everything. Running a small business means you have to wear many hats to find success. Some restaurant owners choose to handle all aspects of the business like a CEO, including the company’s payroll and accounting side. If you’re in the restaurant business and want to spend less time on the nuances of payroll, consider using a External link opens in new tab or windowpayroll services company for your needs.

The restaurant industry has unique challenges when it comes to accounting services. When seeking payroll system solutions, it’s important to find a financial company that has specific knowledge of payroll tax, restaurant financial statements, and tax planning.

Unique Restaurant Financial Service Considerations

Even the most business-savvy restaurant or small business owner may need outside assistance with payroll processing and other accounting measures. Restaurants have unique considerations when tracking labor hours and payments. Whether you choose a firm for full financial accounting, including profit and controls, or contract out payroll services only, choosing a financial services company that is well-versed in hospitality can save you money and make sure you are fulfilling every responsibility to your employees and the government.

  • Restaurant seasonality. Although many retail establishments also experience seasonal changes, restaurants are subject to seasonality more than most industries. Accounting services with experience in the highs and lows of restaurant seasons understand the nuances of navigating these changes and paying attention to the financial challenges, including seasonal employees and health insurance.
  • Tips as wages. Restaurant employees in certain categories can be paid differently than in other positions due to tips’ earning. When choosing an accounting service for restaurant payroll, it is essential to work with a team that has specific restaurant experience if you employ servers whose income is partially tip-based. These unique circumstances can be confusing even for restaurant management, so businesses need to make sure that proper reporting takes place.
    For example, restaurants pay sales tax and a surtax on anything that is income on a receipt. That goes from service charge, minimum charge, corkage fee, and others. Also, service charges are no longer considered "tips" in the state of Florida. Instead, these charges must be added to an employee’s paycheck and included as taxable income.
  • Payroll taxes. While working on payroll services, a financial services company can review the way your taxes are being paid. The goal is to make sure all of the bases are covered while minimizing the burden of the tax requirements. When a professional eye overlooks your payroll and business taxes, you can be assured nothing is missed that can be a future liability.
