  2. Create Workplaces: Add your work locations to your profile. This is necessary for accurate tax calculations, as tax rates can vary depending on location.

  3. Set Signer Title: Choose a title that accurately represents your role within the company. This title will appear on various authorization forms for payroll processing. Here is a Help Center article to help you on the signer title: Identifying the Right Authorized Signer for Your Company
