We treat your employees’ personal information like it’s our own and we file your company’s payroll taxes completely and on time, without question. Guaranteeing this is our CFO, who is Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). CLEAR has systems, protections and processes in place for the security of our clients and their employees, and we continuously monitor them for reliability.
Still, we say “don’t trust us, verify us.”
Proof of Tax Payments
After submitting your payroll taxes, we receive an Electronic Federal Tax Acknowledgement Number as a payment receipt. You can verify the tax payments we make on your behalf by logging into the EFTPS – Electronic Federal Tax Payment System.
To get started, you’ll need to enroll on the EFTPS website. Have your EIN ready and when prompted to select a payment option, be sure to select “Have your financial institution initiate your transaction.” After you enroll, you will receive a PIN and a password in the mail. You will need your EIN, PIN and password to verify the tax payments
Quarterly, we provide a letter from an independent certified public accountant, confirming that CLEAR has remitted all payroll taxes on your behalf.
CLEAR takes security very seriously. We encrypt sensitive information shared between our clients and ourselves. Our servers are protected, access is controlled and our process for handling sensitive information transmitted online is safe and secure.
HIPAA Compliance Assessment
CLEAR has done something few, if any, other PEOs have. Our HIPAA Compliance Assessment confirms that we are compliant with the stringent national standard to protect employee medical records and health information and that we are using best practices to control access to this sensitive information.
A surety bond is a contract among the client, CLEAR and the surety, who assures that CLEAR can perform the tasks promised. Clear has a surety bond that covers payroll taxes (State, Local and Federal).
A fidelity bond is a form of insurance protection that covers policyholders for losses as a result of fraudulent acts by specified individuals. CLEAR has coverage on every individual in operations.
