Questco Designated Certified Professional Employer Organization

October 4, 2018

CONROE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--Questco, a leading outsourced HR solutions provider, has been named a Certified Professional Employer Organization (CPEO) by the United States Internal Revenue Service. To achieve and maintain CPEO certification, Questco must meet specific IRS requirements surrounding tax compliance, background reports, industry experience, financial reporting, audit examination and bonding.

CPEO certification provides regulatory and cost certainty for current and potential Questco clients. Specifically:

- Some wage base tax restarts are eliminated. A CPEO has successor employer status for federal payroll taxes, which means that a business that contracts with a CPEO during the year will not face double taxation on FICA and FUTA.

- Tax liability is clarified. A CPEO is solely liable for the federal employment taxes paid to worksite employees. Once the CPEO invoice that includes these taxes is paid by the client, the IRS can only collect these taxes from the CPEO.

- Tax credit eligibility is continued. A client that uses the services of a CPEO remains eligible for certain specified federal tax credits.

“Our CPEO certification provides lasting peace of mind to our clients and makes it even easier to begin a new relationship with Questco,” said Jason Randall, CEO, Questco Companies. “We are proud of our ongoing commitment to our clients’ success, and becoming a certified PEO is another tangible way for us to show this commitment.”
