A recent industry study found that the average savings from using a PEO is $1,775 per year, per employee resulting in an annual ROI of 27.2%.

IRS-Certified PEO

When evaluating a PEO, select one that has been certified through the IRS. The voluntary certification involves a thorough background and experience prerequisites, strict financial requirements, independent audit standards, and contractual conditions that shift potential tax-related exposures from the customer to the PEO.
