    Reporting

    First, let’s be clear… it is your data, you should have 24/7 access.

    Nobody wants to pump out reams of paper every payroll, which requires organization, filing and storage space. Symphony works with each client to select only those reports that help successfully manage their business.

    Reporting Options Include:

    Standard Activity Reports: Symphony maintains a broad offering of standard activity reports including personnel registers, payroll registers, tax liability summaries, time-off accruals, individual earnings and deductions, change listings and many others.

    Standard Management Reports: Beyond period activity, Symphony maintains an extensive offering of management reports to help make decisions.

    Third Party data feeds:  We can create a submission file that meets your administrator’s specific format requirements, produce this file each payroll run, and transmit it electronically to the administrator. Timely transmittal translates into faster recognition of 401k deposits. Participant dollars have the potential to start earning investment returns more quickly. It is automated, accurate, efficient and taken care of.
