OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Know the steps to consider in the merger and acquisition process and the general steps to consider in payroll due diligence.In the last decade there has been significant transaction activity, so much so, that most large to mid-size organizations have experienced, at minimum, a reorganization.

Gain an understanding of employment tax considerations in the due diligence process; wage base carryovers and how they can impact the bottom line; state unemployment insurance rate assignments and what can go wrong subsequent to a partial and total acquisition; the federal employment tax reporting mechanics connected to mergers and acquisitions; considerations in a lookback review and steps to consider in the process and the general steps to consider in a merger and acquisition work plan.
