Patience is Not Only a Virtue, But a Money Saver for Business Owners

by Andrew SzczesniakAugust 12, 2013 10:54 AM

When I was little my mother always told me that “patience was a virtue”. That was always her response when my sister and I would bother her with the all too famous phrase of “Are we there yet?” during our annual family vacation trips. Little did I know that the phrase she would tell us would come in handy down the road in my career and more specifically, in the realm of unemployment claims management.

What About the Individual Mandate?

by Andrew SzczesniakAugust 7, 2013 10:00 AM

President Obama’s administration has decided to delay enforcement of one of the key provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA): the Employer Mandate.

Mark Mazur, Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, posted on the White House’s Treasury blog on July 2. In this post, he announced that the administration has decided to postpone enforcement of the Employer Mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act by a full year.

GMS: Leading the Electronic Way!

by Andrew SzczesniakAugust 5, 2013 11:15 AM

For several years, GMS has been paying Ohio local taxes via Ohio Business Gateway. This method has saved us from printing 1,500 checks annually and the paper forms to go along with them. In a single quarter, GMS will pay over 1.2 million dollars in local tax payments to 180 jurisdictions. But what’s more exciting is that we uploaded and processed our first live electronic returns & payments to the ODJFS (Ohio Department of Job and Family Services) for Q2, 2013.

What does this really mean?

  • We sent the agency a deposit that exceeded 1 million dollars. 
  • We avoided printing over 700 checks and the accompanying 1,800 sheets of additional paper. 
  • We avoided the extravagant shipping charges for such a large package and secured the payments by uploading rather than the standard delivery method.
  • We also no longer need to wait the typical 2-4 weeks for our returns to post, they are posted almost immediately. 
  • And best of all, we were the first TPA contacted to work with ODJFS on this filing method. 

We’re very proud of the relationship we have with ODJFS and are happy to announce that we are now completely electronic with them. We get automated rate adjustments, automated tax notices and now electronic returns. If you have questions about your ODJFS account, please feel free to contact us at taxmail@groupmgmt.com.

Rooting for Your Company

by Andrew SzczesniakJune 27, 2013 10:54 AM

Last Saturday, I took my daughters down to Nike Park in Parma, Ohio to watch my co-workers play a softball game in the Cleveland Corporate Challenge. GMS played against Bucci’s Restaurant and won their first game, 13-12. (Yay team!) While I’m glad my co-workers won, I was even more impressed with something else I saw.

Bringing HR Sexy Back

by Tim AustinJune 11, 2013 2:58 PM

When you think "sexy," you don’t automatically think "HR."

I’m not talking about the kind of sexiness of the first time I held my wife’s hand. I’m talking about business sexy— what makes a company interesting and what makes an industry intriguing. What gets people excited.
