Topia Compass

Payroll Withholding

Ensure Accurate State and International Withholding for Distributed Workers

Organizations are required to withhold payroll taxes for employees that perform work in non-resident states and countries. Determining where and how much to withhold for remote and business travellers is traditionally a time consuming and complex process for employers. Topia Compass’s powerful technology aggregates location information to intelligently determine how much time employees have spent in different jurisdictions and automatically feed that information to payroll teams – saving time, money, and preventing audits.
