Payroll tax updates occur frequently throughout the year – taxes are added, edited, or removed and other jurisdictional parameters such as withholding form fields are updated. If the updates are not managed, the client data used to calculate payroll can become stale or exclude newer data inputs necessary to calculate payroll accurately. With Webhooks by Symmetry, you can keep your payroll application up to date with critical payroll updates driven by the Symmetry Tax Engine.

What is a webhook?
Webhooks send information via an HTTP request to an application any time a specific event happens. They let you stay up to date when any new data is added, updated, or deleted. In the case of Webhooks by Symmetry, any tax changes or jurisdictional parameter updates can be sent as a payload to a client’s domain or unique URL. Webhooks are automatic meaning they fire as soon as an event in the sending system is triggered.
What are webhooks used for?
Webhooks are used to keep information accurate and up to date. In their absence, manual and repeatable processes must be created.
