About Us

Columbia EDP Center, Inc. is a locally owned Payroll Service Bureau in Columbia MO.  We have been doing business throughout the United States for over 40 years. Most of our clients are located in central Missouri. We have been in business since April 1965 and Incorporated as Columbia EDP Center, Inc. on May 25, 1971.

Our system is very robust and easy for our clients to use. You turn in the payroll information and we do the rest! Payroll can be sent in by phone, fax or an Excel spreadsheet emailed to us. We also have remote client input, which is a version of our software on your computer.

Our goal is to use our expertise in payroll and payroll tax to provide you with the best payroll/tax service possible. We are also aware of your many needs in other areas such as employee benefits. So that we can provide you with the best solution in these areas, we have partnered with area experts to offer 401k’s, IRA’s, Section 125 Cafeteria plans, Insurance and other benefits. Our partnerships with these professionals ensure we are providing the highest level of expertise and the greatest value to our clients.

Our basic service includes, payroll preparation, making tax deposits, filing quarterly returns, annual returns and W-2’s. Other services available are; pay as you go work comp insurance, time and attendance solutions, employee self service, pay cards, applicant/employee background screening, human resource solution, time off accrual, garnishment / child support payments and 401k deductions and reporting.

Because we are committed to keeping our clients information safe and secure, we maintain real time data synchronization with our off-site secure facility. The minute changes are made to our main production database servers, a copy of that information is sent to our backup site. Your data is also backed up on tape every night and stored at a different off-site location. In case of disaster at our main office, we can literally walk in the door of our off-site facility located one hundred feet below ground and start processing payrolls. We have a complete disaster recovery plan in place and are ready to continue business operations even in the event of a disaster at our main location. We test all systems and processes at our off-site facility and exercise our disaster recovery plan every six months to be sure we can process from that location should it be necessary. Each test run is carefully documented. If we experience any failure during testing, we make the corrections and conduct the entire test all over again until we achieve a failure free test. Changes and upgrades are made when necessary to keep our facility in optimum condition. Your payroll and payroll tax information is vital to your organization. Security and confidentiality of that information is among the most important aspects of your business. It’s very important to us too, and we have taken extensive steps to protect your information and give you peace of mind.

We appreciate the value of our employees and are proud to have many that have been with us on a long term basis. We have two employees that have been with us over forty years, two that have been with us over thirty years and five that have been with us between ten and twenty years. We have an MBA accountant and a Certified Payroll Professional on staff for professional support of our client’s payroll and tax needs. We have a wealth of experience, knowledge and resources to support our client’s payroll and tax needs.

Columbia EDP is committed to supporting our local community through memberships in the Missouri, Jefferson City, Fulton, Moberly and Columbia area Chambers of Commerce. We are an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau with an A+ grade. We are also members of the American Payroll Association and the Independent Payroll Providers Association. We are very proud of these affiliations that represent our commitment to being an outstanding corporate citizen of our community.

We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss our payroll  and tax services with you in the near future.

I work as an HR manager for a company with just over 100 employees and I can’t say enough about how helpful Columbia EDP has been. I have worked with them for 5 years now and they go above and beyond. Not only do they do the pay roll with out issue but they help me keep up to date with general HR issues.

As a small business owner, I need to concentrate on the things I do well and allow professionals to keep me in compliance with Governmental agencies and to release me from the time constraints of in house payroll. For over 25 years I've used Columbia EDP to service my payroll obligations and to keep me confident in the important aspect of payroll and payroll taxes. Sincerely, LC Betz

For over twenty years ACT has had its payroll processing done by EDP. As our company grew we occasionally considered outsourcing this service to others or considered doing it ourselves. We stayed with EDP because our evaluation always ended up the same… no one could do it better for the price. EDP has been a great resource by staying current with pertinent legislation and making sure we implement any new regulations. They train our staff and help assure that all payroll records are accurate. Whether its COBRA requirements, the HIRE Act, or providing timelines for implementing health insurance changes as the result of legislative action, EDP is on top of all these and more. EDP also supports our efforts in many other ways. They have offered resources for timekeeping and other areas that are designed to improve efficiencies. The staff at EDP is courteous, knowledgeable and very professional in all interactions. We have done business with them for a long time and have no intentions of changing. Mark Hassemer Executive Director, ACT

My husband and I recently sold our business. We used Columbia EDP for over 10 years. We found the staff to be very knowledgeable. We had great service and staff members were always willing to answer questions. Columbia EDP staff were our "partners" in business. With there help we were able to build a successful business! We will always be grateful for their help over the years! Lynda and Steve Baumgartner

Empire Roller Rink has used Columbia EDP for several years and we are exceptionally pleased with their services. The friendliness and accuracy are a blessing. In talking to other Roller Rink operators who have used payroll services and have had so many problems, they are unwilling to use another payroll service. I am extremely happy and would highly reccommend EDP for all your payroll services.
