Increasing Value Through Tip Compliance

GrataSoft™ Solutions software for the tipped hospitality operator is designed to solve all employee tip tracking and employee tip administration, dramatically simplifying IRS TRAC, TRDA and ATIP tip program administration, while providing net tip and gratuity information for payroll use. The operator may choose to pay non-cash tips as wages, or pay gratuities as wages, as required by the IRS. Tracking of all tip-outs between staff is supported, as is the allocation of tips and gratuities between employees. These data are instrumental in GrataSoft™ Solutions complete IRS TRAC Statement automation, which includes inter-employee tip tracking. These data also provide employees with the benefit of IRS 4070A compliant daily record of tips, as well as many more application specific features.
