Lyons HR Completes Successful SOC 1 Type II Examination

Lyons HR, a leading provider of comprehensive HR management solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, announced that it has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 1® Type II examination covering the payroll processing system of its professional employer organization (PEO) service delivery platform.

A SOC 1 Type II is a report on the controls at a service organization that was established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This report complies with the SSAE 18 auditing standards focusing on the controls of a service organization that are relevant to an audit of a user entity’s financial statements. The standard demonstrates that an organization, such as Lyons HR, has adequate controls and processes in place. Without these best practices, service organizations can negatively impact the validity, completeness, and accuracy of the financial statements of its clients.

Insyte CPAs testing of Lyons HR’s controls included testing of the design and operating effectiveness of their policies and procedures regarding payroll implementation and set-up, master file changes, payroll processing and distribution, payroll tax payments, logical access and change management general computer controls, and other critical operational areas of the business. Upon completion of the examination, Lyons HR received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that its internal control environment meets or exceeds the stringent SOC 1® criteria.
