What information in GoCo will be synced to payroll?
If GoCo is syncing your payroll that means we are transferring employee changes over to your payroll system. Here is a guide for what does and does not get synced over by our team.
This list applies to all major payroll providers. If you have an integration with ADP Workforce or Paylocity, this process may vary slightly. See the article onintegrationshere.
Items we always sync:
Phone number updates
Benefit deductions that are in GoCo*
New hires enrolling in benefits for the first time
Deduction changes due to a life event (ex: adding or dropping a dependent)
Changes to a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account made on GoCo
*NOTE:if the deductions are not in GoCo on the employee's profile, we can't be responsible for getting those in payroll. They must be handled offline.
Direct Deposit updates
Tax withholding updates
Deduction changes due to a Renewal
Contractors If your company has contractors, GoCo can sync them to payroll for you. Please keep in mind that GoCo does not collect compensation information for contractors. Payments and wages for contractors will need to be done within payroll by the company.
Time off balances or requests
Hours worked / timeclock -- this information is not collected in GoCo
Benefits that are not on GoCo
Multiple pay rates
We will remove the employee from payroll after the final check has been run, but we will not calculate the final paycheck based on hours worked, etc.
Even if GoCo is syncing your payroll, you can still view the Payroll Dashboard and review the items we are syncing over. To do that, go to the Payroll Sync tab on the left side menu or on the Company Page:
