Symmetry Software has launched a new notification service, Webhooks by Symmetry, which helps modern fintech apps stay up-to-date with critical payroll updates.

Webhooks by Symmetry is a notification service that keeps your application programmatically in sync with critical tax updates driven by the Symmetry tax engine. Payroll tax changes occur frequently, and the process of updating applications affecting payroll tax calculations can be complex and time-consuming. Changes occur throughout the year as new taxes are added, changed, or removed or other jurisdictional settings such as withholding form fields are updated. If these updates are not managed properly, the data used to calculate payroll taxes may become outdated or exclude new data needed for accurate payroll calculations. Webhooks by Symmetry offers a solution to manage this burden of keeping up with constant tax changes through technology.

The Webhooks by Symmetry interface lets you register custom webhooks in a developer portal. The webhook will send data to your app based on specific events within the Symmetry tax engine, including changes in tax rates, addition of new taxes and tax IDs, changes in jurisdiction settings, etc Automated alerts allow modern service providers to update their applications in real time. In addition to webhooks, you can also sign up to receive personalized email notifications sent when a tax change that matters most to you occurs.

Never miss a payroll update again with Webhooks by Symmetry. Here are some examples of the types of applications that could benefit:

  • Any developer needing the latest payroll tax changes, including new taxes, tax rate changes, and jurisdiction settings
  • B2B platforms that want to innovate on payroll
  • Developers who touch HR and tax who need point solutions for automation
  • Software vendors creating a new application or supplementing an existing payroll application

“We are excited to offer Webhooks by Symmetry. This product will allow development teams to speed time to market and reduce the burden of keeping up with changing data in the fiscal engine. For non-technical users, the email functionality will provide clients with another way to be notified of changes that may affect their tax calculations.” Billy Long, Chief Architect
