Texas PEO Companies

What Does a Texas PEO Company Do?

A PEO service allows you to outsource employment administrative work for less, giving you more time to focus on growing your Texas business. Administrative work such as payroll and tax filings, safe workplace, unemployment claims hearings and more can all be outsourced with the help of a professional employer organization. All of these essential tasks are vital to the success of your Texas business; having an expert team from a PEO can help ensure they are completed correctly and on time.

How Does a Texas Professional Employer Organization Work?

When working with a Texas PEO company, your business enters into a shared or co-employment relationship. The PEO becomes the administrative “employer of record" and is responsible for payroll, tax reporting, benefits, risk management and more. You maintain direct control of the day-to-day activities of your employees, while the PEO manages the paperwork.

Benefits of a Texas PEO Service

Professional Employer Organizations and many HR outsourcing providers offer Fortune 500 benefits with competitive rates that are accessible for big and small companies. Human resource professionals reduce many employment liabilities by providing assistance with safety and employee handbooks, along with proper hiring and employment procedures.

Some of the most common PEO benefits include:

Advantages of Using a Texas PEO for Workers Compensation

PEOs have many benefits, but one of the biggest lies in the master workers' compensation insurance policies for their clients. Most businesses experience immediate savings on rates, while avoiding down payments and state fees. Payroll services also provide an audit each period to insure accuracy.

How Much Do Texas PEO Services Cost?

Texas PEO companies either charge a fixed percentage of your total payroll, or a flat fee per employee. All professional employment organizations charge different rates. Your rate charged will also depend on the amount and type of administrative services needed.

Save Money by Using a PEO 

Working with a PEO will also save your business money. Administrative costs when using a professional employer organization range between 2%-4% of your annual payroll. This amount is much less than the average 8%-15% ( evaluated by the Small Business Administrations) when managing similar tasks in-house.
