If your firm processes payroll through Accounting CS Payroll, you can enable Employee Self-Service for your clients. Through Employee Self-Service, your clients’ employees can enter time; view check stubs, Forms W-2s, and Forms 1099-MISC (for independent contractors); and update W-4 information through their own personal, private portals.
Note: The first time that employees access the W-2 screen on their portals, they will be prompted to give their consent to receive their W-2 forms electronically.
If your firm processes payroll through Payroll CS, you can enable Web Employee for your clients. Through Web Employee, your clients’ employees can enter time, view check stubs and W-2s, and update W-4 information through their own personal, private portals.
Note: Employee Self-Service and Web Employee are billable modules (some exceptions may apply).
Accessing Web Employee through NetClient CS or NetStaff CS
If clients or staff register for Employee Self-Service or Web Employee with the same first name, last name, and email address as a NetClient CS or NetStaff CS portal, NetFirm CS will automatically link the Web Employee portal with the NetClient CS or NetStaff CS portal. When the portals are linked, the user can view Web Employee screens from within NetClient CS or NetStaff CS.
If a client or staff member registers for Web Employee with a first name, last name, or email address that does not match his NetClient CS or NetStaff CS portal, NetFirm CS cannot link the portals automatically. However, you can manually link the portals.
To determine which portals are linked, do one of the following.
- In the Admin tab of the navigation pane, click the Users link the NetClient CS section or in the NetStaff CS section and select the user in the Users pane. The Web Employee Linked User field displays the Web Employee user name and the client to which the NetClient CS or NetStaff CS portal is linked. If you have access to both the client and Web Employee administration, the entry in the Web Employee Linked User field is a link that will take you to the screen for the Web Employee user.
- View the Web Employee Users report.
Note: The Web Employee Users report also lists all Web Employee users, the email address for each Web Employee user, and the date on which Web Employee was activated for each user.
