Complete Payroll is SSAE-16 Compliant

Complete Payroll is SSAE-16 Compliant.png

SSAE 16 compliance is a hot topic within the regulatory compliance world. That’s because the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement (SSAE) number 16, known simply as SSAE-16, has replaced the longstanding SAS-70 audit standard for reporting periods ending on or after June 15, 2011.

Complete Payroll has achieved third party validation under the SSAE-16 Type II certification.


What does this mean?

  • SSAE-16 Type II, a widely recognized auditing standard established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the authoritative guidance demonstrating that Complete Payroll has undergone an independent in-depth audit, including testing of Complete Payroll’s control activities over its payroll services. A Type II report not only includes the service organization’s description of controls, but also includes detailed testing of the service organization’s controls.
  • SSAE-16 Type II continued endorsement helps provide credible proof to Complete Payroll customers that their critical data is secure using Complete Payroll’s services.
  • SSAE-16 Type II is designated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an acceptable method for management to obtain assertions about service organization internal controls without conducting separate assessments.
