The Associated Payroll Consultants office located at 700 Veterans Memorial Hwy, Suite 302 in Hauppauge will remain open.

We have built trusted relationships with our clients over the years and we are certain that they will continue to be well served in the years to come. Clients will quickly see the value in the combined strengths of both companies,” said Bernard Soto, previous partner at Associated Payroll Consultants who will now serve as the Senior Vice President of Sales for Advantage Payroll Services.
