What is a PEO –
Professional Employer Organization?

A PEO, or Professional Employer Organization, is a company that you hire to assist with all things employment related. In contrast, a payroll service provider only provides payroll and payroll tax administration. The relationship between the client and the PEO is quite unique unlike utilizing a payroll service. The PEO becomes the “employer-of-record” in which all employee wages are paid under the PEO’s tax ID number. This specific detail alone can help eliminate a lot of hassle on the clients end.
