Business Segments Description

Payroll Processing: Payroll processing is the backbone of the Paychex product portfolio. The Paychex Payroll service includes the calculation, preparation, and delivery of employee payroll checks; production of internal accounting records and management reports; and the preparation of federal, state, and local payroll tax returns. Payroll processing clients are charged a base fee each period that payroll is processed, plus a fee per employee check processed.

The Core Payroll product is generally targeted for clients with one to forty-nine employees, although many clients with fifty or more employees utilize this service. The Company’s average Core Payroll client (including Advantage and InterPay clients) employs approximately thirteen people and processes approximately thirty-one payrolls each year. Core Payroll clients communicate their payroll information, including hours worked by each employee and any personnel or compensation changes, usually by telephone or fax, to their assigned payroll specialist. Upon receiving the information from the client, the Paychex payroll specialist enters it into the payroll system. Paychex trains these specialists in all facets of payroll preparation and applicable tax regulations and continually updates this training. Clients can also transfer data from their personal computer by using the Paychex Paylink® software or via the Internet. Clients receive payroll checks and reports from either a delivery service, the United States Postal Service, or by picking them up at the local Paychex branch.

Paychex also offers Core Payroll services to its clients and their accountants via Paychex Online. This secure Internet site offers clients a suite of interactive, self-service products and services twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. These include Paychex Online PayrollSM, Internet Time Sheet, Internet Report Service, and General Ledger Reporting Service. Clients can communicate payroll information via Internet Time Sheet or use the Online Payroll service, as well as access current and historical payroll information using the Paychex Internet Report Service. The General Ledger Reporting Service transfers payroll information calculated by Paychex to the client’s general ledger accounting software, eliminating manual entries and improving the accuracy of bookkeeping. Over 100,000 clients are currently utilizing some type of online service.

The Company’s Major Market Services (MMS) Payroll product primarily targets companies that have outgrown the Company’s Core Payroll service or new clients that have fifty or more employees or more complex payroll and benefits needs. Due to expansion efforts in recent years, the Company currently offers this product in all of its significant markets. Approximately one-third of new MMS clients are conversions from the Company’s Core Payroll product.

Most MMS clients communicate their payroll information to Paychex using the Company’s Preview® software. Preview provides clients in-house control of payroll and human resource information because the software and the payroll and human resource database reside on the client’s personal computer or personal computer network. Clients can produce reports and checks at their convenience. Paychex handles the software maintenance and provides the client ancillary services as requested.

Ancillary Products and Services: Paychex provides its clients with a portfolio of ancillary products and services that have been developed and refined over many years. Ancillary products provide the Company with additional recurring revenue streams and increased service efficiencies as these products are integrated with payroll processing services. Paychex offers the following ancillary products and services:

Tax Filing and Payment Services: which provide accurate preparation and timely filing of quarterly and year-end tax returns, as well as the electronic transfer of funds to the appropriate agencies (federal, state, and local). More than 90% of new clients purchase the Company’s tax filing and payment services. The Company believes that the client utilization percentage of these services is near maturity. In connection with these services, the Company electronically collects payroll taxes from clients’ bank accounts, typically on payday, files the applicable tax returns, and pays taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities on the respective due dates. These taxes are typically paid between one and thirty days after receipt of collections from clients, with some items extending to ninety days. The Company handles all regulatory correspondence, amendments, and penalty and interest disputes, and is subject to cash penalties imposed by tax authorities for late filings and late or underpayments of taxes. Clients utilizing the tax filing and payment services are charged a base fee each period that payroll is processed. In addition to fees paid by clients, the Company earns interest on client funds that are collected before due dates and invested until remittance to the appropriate taxing authority.

Employee Payment Services: which provide the employer the option of paying their employees by Direct Deposit, Paychex Access Visa® Card, a check drawn on a Paychex account (Readychex®), or a check drawn on the employer’s account. More than 70% of new clients purchase some form of employee payment services. For the first three methods, Paychex electronically collects net payroll from the client’s bank account, typically one day before payroll, and provides payment to the employee on payday. The Company offers flexible payment options that offer the benefit of convenient, one-step payroll account reconciliation for employers. Clients utilizing employee payment services are charged a base fee for each period that payroll is processed and a fee per transaction or per employee depending on the service provided. In addition to fees paid by the client, the Company earns interest on client funds that are collected before pay dates and invested until remittance to the client’s employees.

The tax filing and payment services and employee payment services are integrated with the Company’s Payroll processing service. Interest earned on funds held for clients is included in total revenues on the Consolidated Statements of Income because the collection, holding, and remittance of these funds are critical components of providing these services.

Time and Attendance Solutions: Paychex offers Time In A Box and other time and attendance solutions, which help minimize the time spent compiling time sheet information. These computer-based systems allow the employer flexibility to handle multiple payroll scenarios and result in improved productivity, accuracy, and reliability in the payroll process. Certain clients are charged a monthly fee for use of hardware, software, and support. Clients also have the option to purchase the hardware and software with annual maintenance contracts.

Regulatory Compliance Services: Paychex offers New-Hire Reporting services, which enable clients to comply with federal and state requirements to report information on newly hired employees, to aid the government in enforcing child support orders, and to minimize fraudulent unemployment and workers’ compensation insurance claims. The Company’s Garnishment Processing service provides deductions from employees’ pay, forwards payments to third-party agencies, including those that require electronic payments, and tracks the obligation to fulfillment. These services enable employers to comply with legal requirements and reduce the risk of penalties.

Comprehensive Administrative Services: The Paychex Administrative Services (PAS) product provides businesses a full-service approach to the outsourcing of employer and employee administrative needs. PAS offers businesses a package of services that includes payroll, employer compliance, human resource and employee benefits administration, and employee risk management. This comprehensive bundle of services is designed to make it easier for businesses to manage their payroll and benefit costs while providing a benefits package equal to that of larger companies. The Company also operates a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), which provides businesses with the same combined package of services as the PAS product, but with Paychex acting as a co-employer of the client’s employees. The Company’s PEO is operated primarily in Florida and Georgia, where PEOs are more prevalent. Paychex offers its PEO product through its subsidiary, Paychex Business Solutions, Inc. For these two products, the client pays a fee per employee per processing period.

Retirement Services: The Company’s Retirement Services product line offers a variety of options to clients, including 401(k) plans, 401(k) SIMPLE, SIMPLE IRA, 401(k) plans with Safe Harbor provisions, profit sharing, and money purchase plans. These services provide plan implementation, ongoing compliance with government regulations, employee and employer reporting, participant access online, electronic funds transfer, and other administrative services. This demonstrates the continuing interest of small- to medium-sized businesses in providing retirement savings benefits to their employees. Paychex is now one of the largest 401(k) recordkeepers for small businesses in the United States.

Workers’ Compensation Services: Most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which provides payments to employees who are unable to work because of job-related injuries. Paychex provides Workers’ Compensation Insurance Administration services by serving, via its licensed insurance agency, as a general agent providing qualified workers’ compensation insurance through a variety of insurance carriers who are underwriters. The Pay-As-You-GoSM program uses rate and job classification information to enable clients to pay workers’ compensation premiums in regular monthly amounts rather than with large up-front payments, which stabilizes their cash flow and minimizes year-end adjustments. The Workers’ Compensation Report Service provides the client with comprehensive information to allow it to better manage its workers’ compensation insurance costs.

Section 125 Plans: The Company offers the outsourcing of plan administration under section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Premium Only Plan allows employees to pay for certain health insurance benefits with pretax dollars, which can result in a reduction in payroll taxes for employers and employees. The Flexible Spending Account Plan allows a client’s employees to pay, with pretax dollars, health and dependent care expenses not covered by insurance. All required implementation, administration, compliance, claims processing and reimbursement, and coverage tests are provided with these services.

Other Human Resource Products: Group health benefits are offered in select geographic areas, as are state unemployment insurance services, which provide clients with prompt processing for all claims, appeals, determinations, change statements, and requests for separation documents. Other Human Resource and Benefits products include employee handbooks, management manuals, and personnel forms. These products are designed to simplify clients’ office processes and enhance their employee benefits programs.
