2. Service Fees and Charges

  1. User agrees to pay the fees for the Services in accordance with the applicable fee schedules listed at https://PaymentEvolution.com/plans and https://PaymentEvolution.com/epay or, if registered via a PaymentEvolution Reseller, the fees disclosed by the Reseller.
  2. User authorizes PaymentEvolution to debit User’s designated bank account, as specified by User through the Platform (the "Bank Account"), for all fees as they become payable. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Service Terms, fees for the Services are typically based on the calendar months in which User is enrolled in any Services (so, for example, if User is enrolled in a Service Plan for a given calendar month, User would be charged for such month even if User does not run payroll in such month), and such fees are applied in full for a given calendar month, regardless of whether User is only enrolled in the Services for a portion of such month. Except for certain fees for particular add-on services that User has opted into, fees for the Services will be billed to User and debited from User’s Bank Account on a monthly calendar basis, in arrears. Notwithstanding the foregoing, PaymentEvolution may invoice User for any applicable, outstanding fees, and User shall pay such invoice within fifteen (15) days of receipt thereof via money transfer, credit card, or any other payment method PaymentEvolution may deem acceptable in its sole discretion. All fees are non-refundable. PaymentEvolution may charge additional fees for exceptions processing, setup, and other special services (including optional add-on services).
  3. Depending on Your relationship with the applicable Reseller, payments may be collected directly by the Reseller. The Reseller is then responsible for remitting funds to PaymentEvolution.
  4. PaymentEvolution reserves the right to change the fees for its Services from time to time. User will be notified of any change to existing fees at least thirty (30) days before the fee change goes into effect. If a fee increase or change to this Agreement is not acceptable to User, User may cancel the Services as provided herein prior to the time when such fee increase or change to this Agreement takes effect. User’s continued use of the Services beyond the cancellation window constitutes User’s agreement to those changes. If PaymentEvolution is unable to collect fees due because of insufficient funds in User’s Bank Account or for any other reason, User must pay the amount due immediately upon demand, plus any applicable exceptions processing fees, bank fees, or charges for return items, plus interest at the lesser of 18% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by law, plus legal fees and other costs of collection as permitted by law.

User may request to change User’s Service Plan by contacting PaymentEvolution support.
  2. If registered via a PaymentEvolution Reseller, Plans are administered by the Reseller and Plan changes are at the discretion of the Reseller.
  3. If User chooses to upgrade from User’s current Service Plan (the "Current Plan") to a more expensive Service Plan (the "New Upgrade Plan"), then such upgrade will promptly go into effect, and User will begin receiving access to the features and Services available under the New Upgrade Plan at the time of such upgrade.

An Account Administrator is authorized by User to access the Services by entering a confidential user ID and password.

  6. User is solely responsible for all actions taken under any Account that User has access to in accessing or using the Service.

If User believes or suspects that User’s Account or passwords or credentials for User’s Account have been disclosed to, accessed by, or compromised by unauthorized persons, User must immediately notify PaymentEvolution. PaymentEvolution reserves the right to prevent access to the Services if PaymentEvolution has reason to believe that User’s Account or passwords or credentials for User’s Account have been compromised.
  9. User is responsible for timely providing PaymentEvolution with the information required for PaymentEvolution to perform the Services. User may furnish such information directly to PaymentEvolution or via an Account Administrator or Authorized Representative, such as User’s accountant or Reseller. Furthermore, User represents and warrants to PaymentEvolution that for any information that User shares with PaymentEvolution, whether directly, via its Account Administrator, or via its Authorized Representative, User will have the authority to share such information. User is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of information provided to PaymentEvolution, and User will ensure that any such information, whether provided by User, an Account Administrator, or Authorized Representative, is accurate and complete. Moreover, User is required to maintain the accuracy and completeness of such information on an ongoing basis and will promptly notify PaymentEvolution, whether directly or through an Account Administrator or Authorized Representative, of any changes to the information provided to PaymentEvolution.

  12. User agrees that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the provision of Account login credentials (e.g., username and password) or identity verification credentials to PaymentEvolution by User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative, together with any actions authorized by such foregoing parties via the Platform (e.g., clicking the "Submit Payroll" or other buttons) or otherwise (e.g., verbally telling a PaymentEvolution Customer Care representative to take an action), will have the same effect as such parties providing a written signature authorizing electronic payments, filings, or any other actions in connection with the Services.
  13. User gives PaymentEvolution permission to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies the individual who creates an Account, is the intended user of an Account, or accesses the Services.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement in their entirety (including all Order Forms), without consent of the other party, to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the other party. A party’s sole remedy for any purported assignment by the other party in breach of this paragraph shall be, at the non-assigning party’s election, termination of this Agreement upon written notice to the assigning party. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
  7. Entire Agreement
    This Agreement, including all Order Forms, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and either signed or accepted electronically by the party against whom the modification, amendment or waiver is to be asserted. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms or conditions stated in Your purchase order or other order documentation (excluding Order Forms) shall be incorporated into or form any part of this Agreement, and all such terms or conditions shall be null and void.

These Payroll Terms are "Service Terms" under the PaymentEvolution Terms. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in these Payroll Terms shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the PaymentEvolution Terms. The Payroll Agreement is a legally binding agreement between User and PaymentEvolution. User is encouraged to read the Payroll Agreement carefully and to save a copy of it for User’s records. If User is agreeing to these Payroll Terms on behalf of a business or an individual other than User, User represents and warrants that User has authority to bind that business or other individual to the Payroll Agreement, and User’s agreement to these terms will be treated as the agreement of such business or individual. In that event, "User" (as defined in the PaymentEvolution Terms) also refers to that business or individual. By (i) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s Service Plan choice, (ii) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s acceptance of the Payroll Agreement, or (iii) accessing or using the Payroll Service, User accepts the Payroll Agreement, and User agrees, effective as of the date of such action, to be bound by the Payroll Agreement.

 

18. Provision of the Payroll Service

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Payroll Agreement, PaymentEvolution agrees to use reasonable efforts to provide User with the Payroll Service in accordance with the Payroll Agreement.

In addition to the obligations specified in these Payroll Terms, User has certain obligations under the PaymentEvolution Terms, including but not limited to obligations to (i) designate an Account Administrator; (ii) be responsible for actions taken under User’s Account; (iii) follow instructions that PaymentEvolution provides to User with respect to the Payroll Service; (iv) provide accurate, timely, and complete information required for PaymentEvolution to perform the Payroll Service and maintain the accuracy and completeness of such information; (v) notify PaymentEvolution of third-party notices, such as Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") penalty notices, which could affect PaymentEvolution’s ability to effectively provide the Payroll Service or which could increase the likelihood that a Claim is brought against User or PaymentEvolution in connection with the Payroll Service; and (vi) refrain from taking certain prohibited actions, as described in further detail in Section User Accounts and Responsibility and Section General Provisions of the PaymentEvolution Terms.

 

tl;dr
This payroll agreement is part of the general terms for PaymentEvolution services.

19. Payroll Service

  1. Provided that User meets User’s payment obligations and complies with the terms of the Payroll Agreement, then as long as User is subscribed to the Payroll Service, PaymentEvolution will provide User with the Payroll Service for the purposes of (i) calculating payroll and its associated liabilities for User’s business; (ii) processing payroll and making related payroll payments; (iii) making certain payroll tax payments and payroll tax filings electronically; and (iv) if applicable, sending wage garnishments, such as child support payments, to applicable agencies. In performing the Payroll Service, including for each of the foregoing purposes, PaymentEvolution will rely on the information furnished by User, User’s Account Administrators, or User’s Authorized Representatives, and PaymentEvolution is not responsible or liable for any errors resulting from such reliance, as further described in Section Limitation of Liability of the PaymentEvolution Terms. User may not use the Payroll Service on a professional basis for anyone other than User, unless User is actively participating in a PaymentEvolution accountant program, in which case User may use the Payroll Service in accordance with the terms of such program.
  2. Prior to User’s initial payroll processing date, User must submit the completed and executed documents PaymentEvolution requires for providing the Payroll Service, including User’s payroll and bank account information, and any additional information requested by PaymentEvolution. The Payroll Service provided will be based on and is dependent upon information provided to PaymentEvolution by User (including proof of tax identification numbers). Failure to provide the required documents may adversely impact PaymentEvolution’s ability to perform the Payroll Service. User is also responsible for: (i) paying any withholding liabilities incurred prior to enrolling in the Payroll Service; and (ii) cancelling any prior payroll service or services of employee leasing companies (if applicable).
  3. In performing the Payroll Service, User acknowledges and agrees that (i) PaymentEvolution is not acting in a fiduciary capacity for User and/or User’s business; (ii) using the Payroll Service does not relieve User of User’s obligations under local, provincial, or federal laws or regulations to retain records relating to User’s data contained in PaymentEvolution’s files; and (iii) any information that PaymentEvolution provides in connection with the Payroll Service is for informational purposes only and should not be construed by User as legal, tax, or accounting advice.
  4. An Account Administrator or Authorized Representative shall approve and submit the Payroll Information (as defined below), thereby authorizing PaymentEvolution to create and transmit credit or debit entries (the "Entries") necessary to process User’s payroll and payroll tax transactions.

 

tl;dr
PaymentEvolution will provide you the payroll service. You will pay any taxes owing prior to using the payroll service.

20. Payroll Information

  1. PaymentEvolution will notify User via electronic communication or by other means when all information necessary to begin the Payroll Service has been received and the enrollment process for the Payroll Service has been completed. User shall then, prior to submitting User’s first payroll, review the Payroll Information for completeness and accuracy. For the purposes of the Payroll Agreement, "Payroll Information" shall mean any information provided to PaymentEvolution in connection with the Payroll Service, including but not limited to information provided by User, Account Administrators, Authorized Representatives, User’s employees, or User’s independent contractors, and all information posted in connection with the Payroll Service for User’s review on the Platform or otherwise requested for review by PaymentEvolution, such as the information used to calculate and pay employee payroll, track User’s defined employee benefits, pay payroll taxes to applicable taxing agencies (including User’s employer identification number(s), unemployment insurance tax rates, and employment tax deposit schedule), produce payroll tax returns and tax slip statements, and print cheques on User’s Account (if applicable). User must correct or provide, respectively, any incorrect or missing Payroll Information, either through the Platform or by notifying PaymentEvolution in the manner specified in the applicable electronic communication received by User and within the time period specified therein. User is fully responsible for the accuracy of all information User provides, submits, and/or approves (whether provided directly or through User’s Account Administrators or Authorized Representatives), and User is solely responsible for any Claims, including but not limited to CRA/Revenue Quebec penalties and/or interest, and other penalties and/or interest arising from the failure to timely provide and maintain accurate and complete Payroll Information at all times.
  2. User agrees that by submitting each payroll (including the first payroll): (i) User approves all Payroll Information; (ii) User waives and releases any Claim against PaymentEvolution arising out of any errors or omissions in the Payroll Information which User has not corrected (whether directly or through User’s Account Administrators or Authorized Representatives) or has not requested PaymentEvolution to correct; and (iii) User acknowledges that any subsequent request for corrections will be considered special handling, and additional fees may be charged. Final responsibility for any audits or assessments rests with User. PaymentEvolution will not have any responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any data User provides via the Platform or via any other method.
  3. User acknowledges, agrees, and understands that (i) any information or instructions (including but not limited to Payroll Information and Entries) communicated to PaymentEvolution by User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative (or anyone that PaymentEvolution reasonably believes to be User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative) will be deemed fully authorized by User, and User shall be fully responsible for the accuracy of such information and instructions, and any Claims, including but not limited to any CRA/Revenue Quebec penalties and/or interest or other penalties and/or interest arising therefrom; and (ii) notwithstanding such deemed authorization, PaymentEvolution may in its sole discretion refuse to accept or act upon any such instructions.
  4. PaymentEvolution, its employees, and agents will only collect, use, and disclose data furnished by User or produced by PaymentEvolution under this Agreement in accordance with PaymentEvolution’s Privacy Policy.
tl;dr
You are responsible for entering and validating all payroll results.

21. Payroll Authorization

  1. PaymentEvolution will use reasonable efforts to verify that anyone providing an instruction to approve, release, cancel, or amend the Payroll Information used to create Entries (each, a "Payment Order") to be originated by PaymentEvolution is either User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative. PaymentEvolution does not verify or review Payment Orders for the purpose of detecting any errors; it is User’s responsibility to verify the accuracy of Payment Orders. User will be bound by any Payment Order that is received by PaymentEvolution in compliance with this designated authorization procedure, and User shall indemnify and hold PaymentEvolution and the other Indemnified Parties harmless from and against any Claims arising from the execution of a Payment Order in good faith and in compliance with such procedures.
  2. If a Payment Order describes the payee inconsistently by name and account number, (i) payment may be made on the basis of the account number even if User identifies a person different from the named payee; or (ii) PaymentEvolution may, in its sole discretion, refuse to accept or may return the Payment Order. If a Payment Order describes a participating financial institution inconsistently by name and identification number, the identification number may be relied upon as the proper identification of the financial institution. If a Payment Order identifies a non-existent or unidentifiable person or account as the payee or the payee’s account, PaymentEvolution may, in its sole discretion, refuse to accept or may return the Payment Order.
tl;dr
PaymentEvolution will attempt to verify your payment instructions but may cancel the instruction if we are not able to verify it.

22. Electronic Funds Movement

  1. Funding via Bank Account: On or prior to User’s payroll direct deposit and/or payroll tax deposit date or other applicable settlement or due date, User authorizes PaymentEvolution to initiate debit Entries to the Bank Account at the financial institution indicated by the account number associated with the Bank Account that User provides to PaymentEvolution (the "Bank"), and to debit the Bank Account in such amounts as are necessary to (i) fund User’s direct deposits; (ii) pay any fees or charges associated with the Payroll Service, including, without limitation, finance charges; (iii) pay User’s payroll taxes; (iv) pay any debit, correcting, or reversing Entry initiated pursuant to the Payroll Agreement which is later returned to PaymentEvolution; (v) verify the Bank Account through a test deposit or debit authorization; and (vi) pay any other amount that is owing under the Payroll Agreement or in connection with the Payroll Service. User also authorizes PaymentEvolution to initiate credit Entries to the Bank Account in the event that PaymentEvolution is required to return Unpaid Funds to User, as described in Section Failed Deposits of these Payroll Terms. These authorizations are to remain in full force and effect until PaymentEvolution has received written notice from User of termination of any such authorizations in such time and such manner as to afford PaymentEvolution and the Bank a reasonable opportunity to act upon such notice. PaymentEvolution is not responsible for determining whether the bank accounts of any payors or payees have deposit or withdrawal restrictions.
  2. If using Bank Account funding, User will maintain in the Bank Account, as of the applicable payroll direct deposit date, payroll tax deposit date, or other settlement or due date and time, immediately available funds sufficient to cover all disbursements, fees, payroll taxes or any other amounts due (collectively, the "Amounts Due") under the Payroll Agreement. User’s obligation to have sufficient funds in the Bank Account to cover the Amounts Due matures at the time PaymentEvolution originates the applicable Entries for the Amounts Due and is unaffected by termination of the Payroll Service. PaymentEvolution may set off any amounts User owes to it against any amounts it owes to User in order for PaymentEvolution to obtain payment of User’s obligations as set forth in the Payroll Agreement.
  3. Funding via Wire or Bill Payment: On or prior to the User's funding deadline date (as shown to the User when submitting payroll), the User will send funds to the designated PaymentEvolution account. If funds are not received prior to the deadline, User acknowledges that direct deposits and other payments may not be completed.
  4. Funding via Reseller: Certain Resellers may provide payment services. PaymentEvolution's sole responsibility will be to transmit payment instructions to the Reseller. The Reseller may prescribe additional terms for use of their payment service.
  5. If User does not have sufficient funds to pay the Amounts Due at the time required, or if User refuses to pay the Amounts Due, then PaymentEvolution will not be able to pay out the Amounts Due to the applicable parties and will not be liable for any consequences or Claims directly or indirectly arising from such failure to pay, and PaymentEvolution may (i) debit the Bank Account or any other account owned in whole or in part by User to pay disbursements, fees or charges, payroll taxes, or other amounts due; (ii) refuse to pay any unremitted payroll taxes to the applicable tax agencies, in which case the payroll tax liability will become User’s sole responsibility; (iii) refuse to perform further Services; and/or (iv) immediately terminate the Payroll Agreement. For any amounts due and unpaid, PaymentEvolution may assess finance charges on such amounts and recover certain fees and costs of collection associated with such amounts in accordance with Section Service Fees and Charges of the PaymentEvolution Terms.
  6. Failed DepositsIn the event that a direct deposit payroll payment fails to be paid to the payee and PaymentEvolution cannot ultimately successfully make a payment on User's behalf to the payee, and the funds are returned to PaymentEvolution ("Unpaid Funds"), PaymentEvolution will notify User of such Unpaid Funds and provide User with the appropriate details related to those funds. In addition, PaymentEvolution will return the Unpaid Funds to User in accordance with Section Funding via Bank Account of these Payroll Terms. Funds unclaimed for more than 180 days may be subject to fees or other charges. User, not PaymentEvolution, is required to contact payees and/or otherwise resolve the Unpaid Funds. User acknowledges that User is responsible for complying with all applicable unclaimed or abandoned property laws related to Unpaid Funds, and User hereby expressly releases PaymentEvolution from all liability and Claims directly or indirectly arising from unclaimed or abandoned property laws, including any applicable penalties and/or interest. PaymentEvolution shall have no obligation to defend or otherwise indemnify User in the event of an audit, examination, assessment, or other enforcement action related to the Unpaid Funds under its unclaimed or abandoned property laws. User may update the required wage and payroll information as necessary to reflect any necessary changes in accordance with the provisions of these Payroll Terms to allow PaymentEvolution to re-perform the direct deposit payroll payment on User's behalf.
tl;dr
PaymentEvolution will facilitate fund movement if you subscribe to that service.

23. User Acknowledgement

  1. Amounts withdrawn from the Bank Account for payroll direct deposits and payroll taxes ("Payroll Funds") will be held by PaymentEvolution in accounts at PaymentEvolution’s financial institutions (collectively, the "Payroll Account") until such time as those payments are due to User’s employees and/or independent contractors and the appropriate taxing agencies, and no interest will be paid to User on these amounts. User acknowledges that PaymentEvolution is entitled to invest the Payroll Funds in accordance with its investment guidelines established from time to time, and that PaymentEvolution, in its own capacity, is entitled to all income and gains derived from or realized from such investments and is not accountable to User, User’s employees, or any other person for such income or gains. In order to facilitate the timely payment of payroll direct deposits and payroll taxes, PaymentEvolution may pledge any investments held in the Payroll Account in connection with a loan or investment, rather than convert such investments to cash for each tax payment. To the extent PaymentEvolution receives the Payroll Funds, PaymentEvolution shall indemnify and hold User harmless from and against any loss of any portion of the principal amount of the Payroll Funds (including any losses of principal resulting from the investment of the Payroll Funds) caused by PaymentEvolution while holding the funds in its Payroll Account. If PaymentEvolution incurs losses on the investment of the Payroll Funds or uses the Payroll Funds for any other purpose, PaymentEvolution will make the required payroll direct deposits and payroll tax deposits on User’s behalf by using PaymentEvolution’s own funds or other assets. User acknowledges that no government agency monitors or assumes any responsibility for PaymentEvolution’s financial solvency.
  2. In the event that PaymentEvolution erroneously credits an amount to the Bank Account in excess of the amount that should have been credited (the "Excess Credit Amount"), if any, then User shall promptly notify PaymentEvolution as soon as it becomes aware of such erroneous credit. User authorizes PaymentEvolution to debit any Excess Credit Amounts from the Bank Account, and if the Bank Account contains insufficient funds to cover the Excess Credit Amount, User agrees to promptly refund the Excess Credit Amount to PaymentEvolution through other payment methods that PaymentEvolution may deem acceptable at its sole discretion.
  3. PaymentEvolution’s standard processing time for payroll and contractor payments is four (4) business days, but if User qualifies for one of PaymentEvolution’s expedited payroll processing programs (each, an "Expedited Payroll Program"), then subject to the provisions of this paragraph, and subject to an Account Administrator approving and Submitting Payroll Information to PaymentEvolution, PaymentEvolution will process User’s payroll and contractor payments in less than four (4) business days. Whether User initially qualifies for or continues to qualify for PaymentEvolution’s Expedited Payroll Programs is at the sole discretion of PaymentEvolution, and PaymentEvolution has no obligation to provide expedited payroll processing services to User. If PaymentEvolution processes User’s payroll and/or contractor payments through an Expedited Payroll Program and the Bank Account has insufficient funds to cover such Amounts Due for such payroll and/or contractor payments, or the Bank otherwise rejects the portions of the AFT files originated by PaymentEvolution that relate to Entries for such Amounts Due, then User will owe, and be liable to PaymentEvolution for, such Amounts Due (the "Expedited Payroll Amounts Due"). User will ensure that any Expedited Payroll Amounts Due are promptly paid to PaymentEvolution via a payment method that PaymentEvolution, in its sole discretion, determines is acceptable. If User is liable for any Expedited Payroll Amounts Due or if PaymentEvolution has any reason to believe that User may be in violation of the Payroll Agreement, then PaymentEvolution may immediately revoke User’s eligibility for any Expedited Payroll Program. This provision shall not limit PaymentEvolution from exercising any other rights or remedies it may have under the Payroll Agreement to recover the Expedited Payroll Amounts Due.
  4. In order to use the Payroll Service, User must submit accurate wage and payroll information to PaymentEvolution during and after the enrollment process. PaymentEvolution will not be liable for any penalty, interest, or other Claim that results from inaccurate or incomplete information that User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative supplies. PaymentEvolution shall only file tax information on User's behalf once User has processed User's payroll through the Platform and the payroll has been paid out to the payees. User shall timely and accurately update all wage and payroll information as necessary to reflect changes and respond with additional information, as may be requested from time to time by PaymentEvolution. It is User's responsibility to submit complete, timely, and accurate information to PaymentEvolution in connection with the Payroll Service. Any penalty or interest incurred, or any other Claim that arises, due to inaccurate or incomplete information provided by User will be User's sole responsibility. User further agrees to hold PaymentEvolution harmless from such liability. PaymentEvolution, at its option, may decide not to file User's payroll tax returns, pay User's payroll taxes, or otherwise process User's payroll if there are any unresolved problems with any information requested by PaymentEvolution or submitted by User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative. PaymentEvolution’s sole liability and User's sole remedy for PaymentEvolution’s negligent failure to perform the payroll tax portion of the Payroll Service shall be as follows: (i) PaymentEvolution will remit the payroll taxes received from User to the appropriate taxing authority; and (ii) PaymentEvolution will reimburse User or pay directly to the appropriate taxing authority certain penalties resulting from such negligent error or omission by PaymentEvolution, provided that User must use reasonable efforts to mitigate any penalties or losses resulting from such negligent error or omission by PaymentEvolution. Payment of these penalties is at the sole discetion of PaymentEvolution.
  5. Important Tax Information: Even though User has authorized a third party, such as PaymentEvolution, to file payroll tax returns and make payroll tax payments, ultimately, User is held responsible by taxing authorities for the timely filing of employment tax returns and the timely payment of employment taxes for User’s employees.

24. Termination of Payroll Service

  1. User acknowledges and understands that if User terminates the Payroll Service through User’s Account or PaymentEvolution terminates the Payroll Service pursuant to Section Term and Termination of the PaymentEvolution Terms, then such termination may not be reversible. In the event that User or PaymentEvolution terminates User’s Payroll Service, then as of the time of such termination, PaymentEvolution will have no obligation to make further payroll tax filings on User’s behalf. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if User or PaymentEvolution terminates the Payroll Service, User will be asked to make specific elections regarding whether it would like PaymentEvolution to make certain final payroll tax filings (such filings, the "Final Payroll Tax Filings") on User’s behalf following such termination of the Payroll Service (such elections, the "Post-Termination Filing Elections"). If User does not provide PaymentEvolution with its Post-Termination Filing Elections promptly following termination of the Payroll Service, then User authorizes PaymentEvolution to make the Post-Termination Filing Elections for User on User’s behalf (the "PaymentEvolution Selections"). User acknowledges and agrees that PaymentEvolution may rely on User’s Post-Termination Filing Elections and the PaymentEvolution Selections, and PaymentEvolution is not responsible or liable for (i) any consequences or Claims arising (directly or indirectly) from such reliance; or (ii) any Resulting Errors, or any consequences or Claims arising (directly or indirectly) from any Resulting Errors, in the Final Payroll Tax Filings.
tl;dr
If you terminate the payroll service, please tell us how you want the final tax filings treated.

25. Consent to Share Certain Employee and Independent Contractor Information with Employer

  1. User acknowledges and understands that in providing the Payroll Service, PaymentEvolution acts as an intermediary between employers and their employees and/or independent contractors. If User is an employee or independent contractor, then User hereby authorizes PaymentEvolution to share with User’s employer any information that User has provided to PaymentEvolution in connection with the Payroll Service.
tl;dr
PaymentEvolution can share employee information with the employer.

These PayChequer Terms are "Service Terms" under the PaymentEvolution Terms. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in these PayChequer Terms shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the PaymentEvolution Terms. The PayChequer Agreement is a legally binding agreement between User and PaymentEvolution. User is encouraged to read the PayChequer Agreement carefully and to save a copy of it for User’s records. If User is agreeing to these PayChequer Terms on behalf of a business or an individual other than User, User represents and warrants that User has authority to bind that business or other individual to the PayChequer Agreement, and User’s agreement to these terms will be treated as the agreement of such business or individual. In that event, "User" (as defined in the PaymentEvolution Terms) also refers to that business or individual. By (i) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s Service Plan choice, (ii) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s acceptance of the PayChequer Agreement, or (iii) accessing or using the PayChequer Service, User accepts the PayChequer Agreement, and User agrees, effective as of the date of such action, to be bound by the PayChequer Agreement.

26. Provision of the PayChequer Service

Subject to the terms and conditions of the PayChequer Agreement, PaymentEvolution agrees to use reasonable efforts to provide User with the PayChequer Service in accordance with the PayChequer Agreement.

In addition to the obligations specified in these PayChequer Terms, User has certain obligations under the PaymentEvolution Terms, including but not limited to obligations to (i) designate an Account Administrator; (ii) be responsible for actions taken under User’s Account; (iii) follow instructions that PaymentEvolution provides to User with respect to the PayChequer Service; (iv) provide accurate, timely, and complete information required for PaymentEvolution to perform the PayChequer Service and maintain the accuracy and completeness of such information; (v) notify PaymentEvolution of third-party notices, such as Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") penalty notices, which could affect PaymentEvolution’s ability to effectively provide the PayChequer Service or which could increase the likelihood that a Claim is brought against User or PaymentEvolution in connection with the PayChequer Service; and (vi) refrain from taking certain prohibited actions, as described in further detail in Section User Accounts and Responsibility and Section General Provisions of the PaymentEvolution Terms.

tl;dr
This PayChequer agreement is part of the general terms for PaymentEvolution services.

27. Fees

If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by You, unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on Our income, property and employees.
  3. Direction to Transfer Funds: You may direct PaymentEvolution to transfer funds on your behalf subject to the following:
    1. You hereby authorize and direct your Employer and PaymentEvolution to deduct the full Amount (as approved by you in the Confirmation Screen) from your wages and transfer this amount to the stated party, by means of PaymentEvolution's automatic payment system. This Direction is your personal authorization in writing to make this deduction and transfer of funds.
    2. You hereby waive all claims against your Employer and PaymentEvolution and release your Employer and PaymentEvolution from any claims, for any action they take within the scope of this Direction.
    3. This Direction shall be your Employer’s and PaymentEvolution’s good and sufficient authority for making the deduction and funds transfer. You agree that this Direction is irrevocable and shall remain in full force and effect until the Amount is transferred and cleared in full. PaymentEvolution may deliver a copy of this Direction to the Employer as needed.

Frequency and Amount of Debits: A debit, in paper, electronic or other form in a variable amount ranging from $0 to the maximum amount specified above may be drawn on our account in a sporadic manner. Annual top-ups or adjustments are not permitted. As payments are sporadic, You agree to cooperate with PaymentEvolution to pre-authorize the processing of each and every PAD against Your account by use of an online password, or such other electronic signature equivalent. You agree that Your acceptance of an Order Form is valid authorization for this debit or series of debits. The Order Form summary prior to the PAD will act as sufficient notice and You therefore waive any requirements for pre-authorization. You understand that the frequency will be under Your control through Your authorization via the PayChequer service when You complete the Order Form.

These Business Payments Terms are "Service Terms" under the PaymentEvolution Terms. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in these Business Payments Terms shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the PaymentEvolution Terms. The Business Payments Agreement is a legally binding agreement between User and PaymentEvolution. User is encouraged to read the Business Payments Agreement carefully and to save a copy of it for User’s records. If User is agreeing to these Business Payments Terms on behalf of a business or an individual other than User, User represents and warrants that User has authority to bind that business or other individual to the Business Payments Agreement, and User’s agreement to these terms will be treated as the agreement of such business or individual. In that event, "User" (as defined in the PaymentEvolution Terms) also refers to that business or individual. By (i) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s Service Plan choice, (ii) clicking the applicable button to indicate User’s acceptance of the Business Payments Agreement, or (iii) accessing or using the Business Payments Service, User accepts the Business Payments Agreement, and User agrees, effective as of the date of such action, to be bound by the Business Payments Agreement.

tl;dr

30. Electronic Funds Movement

  1. Funding via Bank Account: On or prior to User’s business payment or other applicable settlement or due date, User authorizes PaymentEvolution to initiate debit Entries to the Bank Account at the financial institution indicated by the account number associated with the Bank Account that User provides to PaymentEvolution (the "Bank"), and to debit the Bank Account in such amounts as are necessary to (i) fund User’s business payment(s); (ii) pay any fees or charges associated with the Business Payment Service, including, without limitation, finance charges; (iii) pay any debit, correcting, or reversing Entry initiated pursuant to the Business Payment Agreement which is later returned to PaymentEvolution; (iv) verify the Bank Account through a test deposit or debit authorization; and (v) pay any other amount that is owing under the Business Payment Agreement or in connection with the Business Payment Service. User also authorizes PaymentEvolution to initiate credit Entries to the Bank Account in the event that PaymentEvolution is required to return Unpaid Funds to User, as described in Section Failed Deposits of these Business Payment Terms. These authorizations are to remain in full force and effect until PaymentEvolution has received written notice from User of termination of any such authorizations in such time and such manner as to afford PaymentEvolution and the Bank a reasonable opportunity to act upon such notice. PaymentEvolution is not responsible for determining whether the bank accounts of any payors or payees have deposit or withdrawal restrictions.
  2. If using Bank Account funding, User will maintain in the Bank Account, as of the applicable debit date, or other settlement or due date and time, immediately available funds sufficient to cover all disbursements, fees, taxes or any other amounts due (collectively, the "Amounts Due") under the Business Payments Agreement. User’s obligation to have sufficient funds in the Bank Account to cover the Amounts Due matures at the time PaymentEvolution originates the applicable Entries for the Amounts Due and is unaffected by termination of the Business Payments Service. PaymentEvolution may set off any amounts User owes to it against any amounts it owes to User in order for PaymentEvolution to obtain payment of User’s obligations as set forth in the Business Payments Agreement.
  3. Funding via Wire or Bill Payment: On or prior to the User's funding deadline date (as shown to the User when submitting a business payment), the User will send funds to the designated PaymentEvolution account. If funds are not received prior to the deadline, User acknowledges that direct deposits and other payments may not be completed.
  4. Funding via Reseller: Certain Resellers may provide payment services. PaymentEvolution's sole responsibility will be to transmit payment instructions to the Reseller. The Reseller may prescribe additional terms for use of their payment service.
  5. If User does not have sufficient funds to pay the Amounts Due at the time required, or if User refuses to pay the Amounts Due, then PaymentEvolution will not be able to pay out the Amounts Due to the applicable parties and will not be liable for any consequences or Claims directly or indirectly arising from such failure to pay, and PaymentEvolution may (i) debit the Bank Account or any other account owned in whole or in part by User to pay disbursements, fees or charges, taxes, or other amounts due; (ii) refuse to pay any unremitted taxes to the applicable tax agencies, in which case the tax liability will become User’s sole responsibility; (iii) refuse to perform further Services; and/or (iv) immediately terminate the Business Payments Agreement. For any amounts due and unpaid, PaymentEvolution may assess finance charges on such amounts and recover certain fees and costs of collection associated with such amounts in accordance with Section Service Fees and Charges of the PaymentEvolution Terms.
  6. Failed DepositsIn the event that a direct deposit payment fails to be paid to the payee and PaymentEvolution cannot ultimately successfully make a payment on User's behalf to the payee, and the funds are returned to PaymentEvolution ("Unpaid Funds"), PaymentEvolution will notify User of such Unpaid Funds and provide User with the appropriate details related to those funds. In addition, PaymentEvolution will return the Unpaid Funds to User in accordance with Section Funding via Bank Account of these Business Payments Terms. Funds unclaimed for more than 180 days may be subject to fees or other charges. User, not PaymentEvolution, is required to contact payees and/or otherwise resolve the Unpaid Funds. User acknowledges that User is responsible for complying with all applicable unclaimed or abandoned property laws related to Unpaid Funds, and User hereby expressly releases PaymentEvolution from all liability and Claims directly or indirectly arising from unclaimed or abandoned property laws, including any applicable penalties and/or interest. PaymentEvolution shall have no obligation to defend or otherwise indemnify User in the event of an audit, examination, assessment, or other enforcement action related to the Unpaid Funds under its unclaimed or abandoned property laws. User may update the account information as necessary to reflect any necessary changes in accordance with the provisions of these Business Payments Terms to allow PaymentEvolution to re-perform the direct deposit payment on User's behalf.
tl;dr
PaymentEvolution will facilitate fund movement if you subscribe to that service.

31. User Acknowledgement

  1. Amounts withdrawn from the Bank Account for direct deposits ("Payment Funds") will be held by PaymentEvolution in accounts at PaymentEvolution’s financial institutions (collectively, the "Payment Account") until such time as those payments are due to User’s employees and/or independent contractors and the appropriate taxing agencies, and no interest will be paid to User on these amounts. User acknowledges that PaymentEvolution is entitled to invest the Payment Funds in accordance with its investment guidelines established from time to time, and that PaymentEvolution, in its own capacity, is entitled to all income and gains derived from or realized from such investments and is not accountable to User, User’s employees, or any other person for such income or gains. In order to facilitate the timely payment of direct deposits, PaymentEvolution may pledge any investments held in the Payment Account in connection with a loan or investment, rather than convert such investments to cash for each payment. To the extent PaymentEvolution receives the Payment Funds, PaymentEvolution shall indemnify and hold User harmless from and against any loss of any portion of the principal amount of the Payment Funds (including any losses of principal resulting from the investment of the Payment Funds) caused by PaymentEvolution while holding the funds in its Payment Account. If PaymentEvolution incurs losses on the investment of the Payment Funds or uses the Payment Funds for any other purpose, PaymentEvolution will make the required direct deposits on User’s behalf by using PaymentEvolution’s own funds or other assets. User acknowledges that no government agency monitors or assumes any responsibility for PaymentEvolution’s financial solvency.
  2. In the event that PaymentEvolution erroneously credits an amount to the Bank Account in excess of the amount that should have been credited (the "Excess Credit Amount"), if any, then User shall promptly notify PaymentEvolution as soon as it becomes aware of such erroneous credit. User authorizes PaymentEvolution to debit any Excess Credit Amounts from the Bank Account, and if the Bank Account contains insufficient funds to cover the Excess Credit Amount, User agrees to promptly refund the Excess Credit Amount to PaymentEvolution through other payment methods that PaymentEvolution may deem acceptable at its sole discretion.
  3. PaymentEvolution’s standard processing time for business and contractor payments is four (4) business days, but if User qualifies for one of PaymentEvolution’s expedited processing programs (each, an "Expedited Payment Program"), then subject to the provisions of this paragraph, and subject to an Account Administrator approving and Submitting Payment Information to PaymentEvolution, PaymentEvolution will process User’s business and contractor payments in less than four (4) business days. Whether User initially qualifies for or continues to qualify for PaymentEvolution’s Expedited Payment Programs is at the sole discretion of PaymentEvolution, and PaymentEvolution has no obligation to provide expedited payment processing services to User. If PaymentEvolution processes User’s business and/or contractor payments through an Expedited Payment Program and the Bank Account has insufficient funds to cover such Amounts Due for such business and/or contractor payments, or the Bank otherwise rejects the portions of the AFT files originated by PaymentEvolution that relate to Entries for such Amounts Due, then User will owe, and be liable to PaymentEvolution for, such Amounts Due (the "Expedited Payment Amounts Due"). User will ensure that any Expedited Payment Amounts Due are promptly paid to PaymentEvolution via a payment method that PaymentEvolution, in its sole discretion, determines is acceptable. If User is liable for any Expedited Payment Amounts Due or if PaymentEvolution has any reason to believe that User may be in violation of the Business Payment Agreement, then PaymentEvolution may immediately revoke User’s eligibility for any Expedited Payment Program. This provision shall not limit PaymentEvolution from exercising any other rights or remedies it may have under the Business Payment Agreement to recover the Expedited Payment Amounts Due.
  4. In order to use the Business Payment Service, User must authorize payables data to be sent to PaymentEvolution during and after the enrollment process. PaymentEvolution will not be liable for any penalty, interest, or other Claim that results from inaccurate or incomplete information that User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative supplies. User shall timely and accurately update all payables information as necessary to reflect changes and respond with additional information, as may be requested from time to time by PaymentEvolution. It is User's responsibility to submit complete, timely, and accurate information to PaymentEvolution in connection with the Business Payment Service. Any penalty or interest incurred, or any other Claim that arises, due to inaccurate or incomplete information provided by User will be User's sole responsibility. User further agrees to hold PaymentEvolution harmless from such liability. PaymentEvolution, at its option, may decide not to process User's business payment if there are any unresolved problems with any information requested by PaymentEvolution or submitted by User, an Account Administrator, or an Authorized Representative.

32. Termination of Business Payment Service

  1. User acknowledges and understands that if User terminates the Business Payment Service through User’s Account or PaymentEvolution terminates the Business Payment Service pursuant to Section Term and Termination of the PaymentEvolution Terms, then such termination may not be reversible.

33. Consent to Share Certain Vendor and Independent Contractor Information with Employer

  1. User acknowledges and understands that in providing the Business Payment Service, PaymentEvolution acts as an intermediary between employers and their vendors and/or independent contractors.
