Will you be payroll ready in time?

Do you or your payroll vendor have questions about the new file layout required for reporting Wages and Contributions in ERM? Attend a free conference in December for more information.

INPRS will host two conferences devoted to the Wage and Contribution file layout you received in June. You and/or your payroll vendor will receive information on the design and usage of the Wage and Contribution file in ERM. Additionally, we'll be available to answer your questions about the file itself and any associated fields.

Conferences will be held on December 6, 2011 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time or on December 8, 2011 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Attendees may choose to attend on site at our downtown Indianapolis location or via webinar (please note: webinar registration is now closed). Please forward this invite to your payroll vendor or other internal payroll staff. Again, all relevant parties may attend.

To register for either of the conferences, click here.

We look forward to helping you transition as smoothly as possible into ERM.
