  • Do PEO arrangements lock me into annual contracts?
  • Types of businesses suited
    to use  a PEO model

Typically, PEO arrangements have executed leasing agreements not contracts. This means that you are able to enter the arrangement under the " pay as you go " model and keep the policy active as long as you continue running payroll with the PEO. Generally speaking it is always better to maintain coverage on a consistent basis and avoid gaps in coverage, however most PEO agreements do not bind you into 12 month contracts or policies similar to a stand alone (SAP) Policy. If you lose your projects or are unable to retain the employees and have to cancel the policy, typically most PEO’s will allow you to reinstate with them as long as you cancel the agreement without any outstanding balances owed.
