âCOVID has impacted all aspects of the finances of most businesses, and its impact has changed daily,â says Katharina Fink, President of GNSA, which provides the best solutions for payroll, human resources and management. staff in all 50 states. âBusinesses have really struggled to keep up with compliance and administration during the pandemic. “
PPP loans; tax implications; incorporating, monitoring and communicating new policiesâ¦ all of this has had a negative impact on the energy and direction of Oregon businesses. Over the past year, many companies have found themselves in the untenable position of having to downsize their staff and not being able to bring them back or hire new employees for a variety of reasons. This left companies with minimal time or resources to process payroll or oversee benefit changes, for example.
âOur strength is to carry this burden of payroll taxes, compliance, reporting and all that,â Fink said. âWe’re not just consultants – we can get rid of it for you to make sure everything is correct and on time. You don’t have to navigate all of this on your own.

Fink expects policies to continue to change until 2022. âCertainly, for the first few months of the year, things are going to remain uncertain,â she said. But beyond that, a big change that’s on the HR administration’s immediate radar is the employee retention credit, which was originally approved by the US Senate to end on January 1 and could now be withdrawn three months earlier if the infrastructure bill passes. The credit was part of the CARES Act, which encouraged companies to keep their employees on their payroll while experiencing lost revenue year over year. Now, businesses may have to figure out how much credit they got and pay back any credit they shouldn’t have taken. âThis could be a struggle for many companies,â says Fink.
Managing these administrative tasks could easily occupy a business owner’s entire day. Since you probably haven’t opened up your business to spend your time focusing on things like taxes and sick leave, get back to running your business and have the peace of mind that everything is taken care of. correctly. GNSA works with any type of business, regardless of size, but they have particular expertise in the non-profit, restaurant and hospitality, and medical and healthcare industries.
âWe have solutions to help take care of everything for the companies we work with, and we will continue to do so,â says Fink. âIt helped our clients do what they set out to do and focus on how their business is tackling these daily challenges and succeeding on the road. “
