Explore the Features, Benefits & Highlights

Access up-to-date payroll tax rules and rates.

Stay up to date with the latest payroll tax rates, payroll formulas, and payroll regulations in the U.S. and Canada, at the federal, state, provincial, and local levels, also including US territories.

Precise tax jurisdiction assignment improves accuracy.

Pinpoint the tax jurisdiction of each employee to enable more accurate withholding, even when they work in multiple locations. Our solution assigns a unique Geocode to each address, a proprietary location identifier which eliminates the problems associated with less accurate locator systems such as ZIP codes. The system identifies the taxing jurisdiction at the employee’s residence and work locations for country, state, county, city, and township tax, even for employees who move during a pay period.

Improve the accuracy of address data to reduce tax errors.

Add address cleansing capability to the Vertex system to scrub U.S. addresses, correcting inaccuracies in street, city, and ZIP codes, and assigning the tax location at the “side-of-street” level. (This requires an additional license and fee.)

Improve payroll tax accuracy even in the most complex scenarios.

Vertex calculates ‘Gross to Net’, ‘Gross Up’, and Vacation pay payroll tax including complex scenarios like multiple work locations during a pay period and reciprocity agreements.

Reliable integrations to HCM and Staffing applications for a seamless payroll tax process.

Simple, streamlined integration to HCM and Staffing systems via REST APIs to deliver payroll tax calculations in real-time.

Flexible, scalable cloud-based technology improves efficiency.

Cloud-delivered technology for fast startup, minimal IT infrastructure, and reduced system maintenance needs. Available option to run on-premise within a docker container. SOC 2 Type 2 Certification.
