Additional fees apply for Certified Payroll Reports prepared upon request (Fees by pay run).
  2. OPTIONAL SERVICES. You may request, and/or from time to time, we may offer you other services, which will be billed to your account at prices specified at the time of request, except as otherwise provided in this Service Agreement.
  3. AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTS. It is the Client’s responsibility to report the time sheets with the hours, salaries, commissions, bonus, tips and/or other employee compensation for each pay period, at least five days prior to the payday to be shown on the checks. The Client may do so, via telephone, fax, E-mail or through our Website. Failure to do so, does not waive The Client’s responsibility of paying the monthly fee described in Paragraph 4 below, since payroll reports will be prepared and filed with government agencies even with no activity.
  4. PROMISE TO PAY THE MONTHLY FEE. You promise to pay us in U.S. dollars, a minimum monthly fee of $99.00 NINETY NINE 00/100 DOLLARS PER MONTH, to cover the processing of payroll checks and reports for a minimum of 1(one) and a maximum of 5(five) employees starting in the month of MAR-2021. Shall the number of employees go beyond the limit of 5(five) then it will be billed at the rate of $1.50 per additional employee per month. In the event that no payroll is processed or reported by The Client, The Client acknowledges and agrees to pay at least the minimum monthly fee of $99.00 since mandatory payroll reports must be prepared and filed with federal and state agencies at the end of each quarter even to report no activity, plus annual reports the end of the year.
  5. METHOD OF PAYMENT: On the first day of each month, we will send you a billing statement or invoice, which will show the new balance on your Account, the Minimum Payment Due, and the Payment Due date. You may at any time pay the entire new balance shown on your billing statement, but each month you must pay at least the monthly fee for the current month.  You authorize us to process your payment via direct debit to your business or payroll bank account through the Automated Clearing House System also known as ACH, via direct draft or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or any other form of payment available to us, such as charge on the business debit/credit card that you may have on file with us, or via direct draft conversion of a business check.
  6. FINANCE CHARGES, COLLECTION AND OTHER FEES: In the event that the business bank account does not have enough funds to cover the monthly fee described herein, The Client agrees that an NSF fee of $25.00 will be charged by our processing agent. Shall your account may go unpaid for over 90 days, a late charge of $29.00 per month will accrue plus a minimum of $5.00 as finance charge or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is higher. You also agree to pay a fee of $29.00, for any check given to us as a form of payment and returned as unpaid for any reason by the financial institution. ACR shall have the right to immediately discontinue providing the services described in Paragraph 1 above and to transfer The Account to an agency for collection.
