What happens if I hire an employee in a new state?

If you hire an employee in a new state, then Aliat will work with you to get your business registered within that state. Aliat will complete all applications to get your business registered with the SOS and all payroll taxing agencies present within that state so that your employees’ payroll is compliant within that specific state.

How much notice do I need to give when I plan to hire an employee in a new state?

As much notice as you can give, the better. However, we will not be able to complete applications until we have a start date and a state specific address, even if the employee will be working from home.

What happens if one of my current employees moves to another state?

If your employee moves to another state, let us know as soon as you know they will be moving. Aliat will then register your business in the state with the SOS as well as all payroll taxing agencies applicable to that state so that your employees’ payrolls are compliant within that state once they move.

No, Aliat does not provide international services. However, we have partners we can direct you to if you decide to hire internationally.

If I get a notice regarding taxes, what should I do?

If you get any kind of payroll tax notice from any agency that is applicable to your time partnered with us, you can send it to us to resolve. If it is from a time before you were partnered with us, you can send it to us, and we can advise you on how to resolve it.

Will you assist in state payroll tax audits?

All your payroll taxes will be reported and paid under Aliat’s ID numbers. If you are joining as an ASO or will have employees in a client-reporting state, then your accounts will need to remain active as all payroll taxes will be filed and paid by Aliat staff under your company’s ID numbers.

Will you file amended returns if needed?

Yes, we will produce amended payroll tax returns and file them as needed.
