Administrative Service Organization (ASO)
An Administrative Service Organization (ASO), provides payroll, employee benefits, human resource advice and workers’ compensation insurance coverage options, to businesses on an outsourced basis. While the ASO provides payroll processing and assures timely tax payments for client companies and their employees, client companies retain employer liability since the employees' wages are still processed through the client company Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). The Client Company remains responsible for compliance issues and unemployment liability with the support of the ASO.
An ASO generally gives companies the greatest flexibility. Services are put together on an ala carte basis.
