CLIENT’S PROBLEM—One-Person Payroll Too Expensive:

A subsidiary of a much larger company (but functioning under its own EIN number) was concerned with the excessive incremental costs per run for a one-person payroll.


By switching from a large payroll bureau (such as ADP) to BMA, this independent contractor greatly reduced his per-payroll cost while increasing his cash flow and net profits.
