Give Your PEO the Compliance Edge!

Accreditation helps make regulatory compliance easy

ESAC's comprehensive state regulatory compliance tools substantially reduce accredited PEOs' compliance time and costs for multi-state operations.

As PEO clients continue to expand into new states (sometimes without advance notice!) ESAC's services help accredited PEOs expedite their initial licensing / registration as well as ongoing renewals in all PEO licensing states.

What are ESAC's regulatory compliance services?

eMac state licensing service

  • ESAC's highly rated service is currently accepted by 26 of the 39 state agencies that regulate PEOs.
  • Authorized agencies access secure data already submitted as part of your PEO's accreditation process to satisfy their licensing requirements.
  • Some states exempt accredited PEOs from bonding requirements and/or offer reduced licensing fees.

eFile state licensing service 

  • ESAC assists accredited PEOs with filing requirements in states not yet accepting the eMac service.
  • Online wizards help generate pre-filled, signature-ready forms by filling data already submitted as part of your accreditation process into each PEO licensing state’s report forms.
  • Online Library provides reference data for all state licensing requirements.

Regulatory surety bond service

  • Accredited PEOs can save 50% or more on required regulatory surety bonds through ESAC's surety carrier.

  • ESAC's efficient process enables fast turn-around with no additional financial information, collateral or indemnity required.

  • Your PEO's accreditation Bond Portal contains state bonding requirements and lists your current bonds along with a report to assist with annual budgeting.

How does eMac work?

For each state agency where you want to use ESAC's eMac service, your PEO will authorize ESAC to provide secure access to required data you've already entered for your accreditation.

Based on instructions in your accreditation Licensing Portal, your PEO submits an eMac filing request and state agency filing fee payment authorization to ESAC.

ESAC reviews the filing and fee authorization for accuracy, forwards your fee and application / renewal request to the state agency, and uploads an invoice for the state's licensing fee to your accreditation Licensing Portal.

ESAC updates state licensing details within your Licensing Portal and sends weekly email notifications of application / renewal acceptance by state agencies.

ESAC provides your PEO with automatic system reminders of upcoming compliance deadlines as well as alerts regarding states where your PEO may need to initiate the licensing process.

"We saved 66% on the first bond we ordered through ESAC's program. And participation in ESAC's financial assurance program is an effective sales and marketing tool and money saver." — Alcott HR

What is ESAC's regulatory surety bond program?

Accredited PEOs can save 50% or more on surety bonds required by state and federal agencies, with reduced rates of 0.5% for state regulatory bonds and 0.25% for IRS certification bonds. Bonds are provided through ESAC’s program manager, Alpha Surety, a Gallagher Company, using an A-rated U.S. treasury-listed surety carrier. 

And because ESAC’s surety carrier has already approved accredited PEOs for participation in ESAC’s Client Assurance Program, no additional financial information, collateral or indemnity is required!
