Leverage Qualified Benefits on Prevailing Wage Projects: As a non-union contractor who performs prevailing wage work, you must pay the required benefits in cash. However, if you have a qualified health care or vacation benefit program, you can offset the cash requirement with the value of your qualified plan. This requires establishing the hourly value of your qualified benefit plan prior to calculating payroll, then deducting this value from the required cash benefit.
Profits in Action: Use Sage 100 Contractor to make automatic qualified benefit calculations when payroll is processed. Simply enter the value of your qualified benefits as the offset to the prevailing wage rates; all reporting and tax calculations will then be generated.
Save Workers’ Compensation on Prevailing Wage Benefits: When you pay prevailing wage benefits in cash, the vacation portion is not normally subject to workers’ compensation. By excluding these vacation amounts from the workers’ compensation calculation, you may be able to save a sizable amount of money.
Profits in Action: Sage 100 Contractor can make this calculation for you. Simply set the cash vacation benefits to exclude workers’ compensation on the payroll calculation screen. Your workers’ compensation reports and your job costs can reflect the correct amounts.
