ADP Canada Expands Electronic Third Party Payment Program to Include
Several Additional Major Government Agencies
New service reduces administrative burden for employers and accelerates remittances
for time sensitive payments
Toronto, July 3, 2007 — ADP Canada, the country’s largest provider of outsourced employer services such as HR, payroll and time and labour management, today announced the expansion of its electronic third party remittance service, in collaboration with several major provincial and territorial government agencies.
In collaboration with these agencies that have responsibility for the enforcement of family support maintenance payments, ADP can now make deductions from an employee’s paycheque for garnishments and support payments and transmit these funds directly to the participating major government agencies including:
- Nova Scotia Maintenance Enforcement Program
- Newfoundland Labrador Support Enforcement Program
- Prince Edward Island Maintenance Enforcement Program
- British Columbia Family Maintenance Enforcement Program
- Manitoba Maintenance Enforcement Program
- Northwest Territories Maintenance Enforcement Program
In the past, employers were required to administer these deductions and make remittances to the government themselves. Sending these payments electronically can reduce the remittance period to a matter of days instead of weeks and allow the Maintenance Offices to facilitate payments to the recipients much more quickly.
“Employers want to reduce administrative burden and ensure compliance with government regulations,” said Janice MacLellan, Director of Industry Relations at ADP Canada. “Administering sensitive and time consuming employee garnishments and support payments is a headache for employers, but not if they use ADP.”
ADP’s third party remittance technology allows its clients to automatically send multiple payroll deductions to various specified vendors – replacing the need to create individual physical cheques and detailed reports each month – saving payroll professionals time and their employers’ money. With this new service expansion, ADP is now enabled to send family support maintenance payments electronically to most provincial/territorial jurisdictions, including Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
