Hello

we currently have one employee so we are looking to manege them ourselves; time keeping, pay, taxes, UI, PTO.

any suggestions for software/ or service (ADP?) that would be easy to use

Pay them as a contractor and let them worry about taxes, etc.

What type of work are they doing?

If you determine that they are an employee vs. a contractor (1099), I recommend a payroll service such has ADP, Paychex, or perhaps a local service.

Workman's compensation may not be required, but should be seriously considered.

I have a report of a family using one of these online services to pay a home health care worker for an elderly relative. They love the online service. For folks unsophisticated in FICA et cetera taxes, the service does a lot for the money it is paid.

If you decide they are a 1099 contractor, make sure they carry their own worker's compensation. Otherwise if something happens to them the liability is on the HOA.

I considered doing this with someone who basically did a lot of the "handyman" work. He was a member of the HOA as well. It was a bad idea to "forgive" their dues in return for services. NEVER EVER do that. 1099 is the way to go IF you decide to do this. However, I think it's really better to hire this person if they have their OWN business license/insurance. They can always incorporate themselves or get a business license/insurance. It would benefit them in many ways.

I find now a days you can find services you need by going to something like "Angie's list" or the BBB. Let them handle all the ramifications of taxes, insurance, and payroll.
