The Cost Plus Savings Model

Ideal for organizations with contingent labor populations, the Cost Plus Savings Model was built when Populus Group discovered the need to help organizations that were paying for taxes long after the cap was reached.  When organizations overpay for taxes like SUTA, FUTA, and FICA, they lose the chance to reinvest those funds to grow their business. Many members of OMNIA Partners are already taking advantage of this incredible program:

How the Cost Plus Savings Model Works

SUTA, FUTA and FICA all have their own limits. Once an employee earns a certain amount of wages, these taxes no longer need to be paid for the rest of the year. Often times, it can be difficult to keep track of who's at which limit and who is not. This is especially the case with larger work forces and those operating in different states. 


With this program, Populus Group keeps track of every worker's progress towards each tax limit, giving those tax dollars back.
