SMALL BUSINESS EMPLOYER ADVISORY COMMITTEE
DE 231SB Rev. 1 (6-17) (INTERNET)Page 1 of 1 CU
INTRODUCTION
The Small Business Employer Advisory Committee (SBEAC)
is a diverse group of business owners, business associations,
trade organizations, and representatives from the Employment
Development Department (EDD). The SBEAC collaborates
on California employment issues and experiences, and
discusses the EDD’s practices, policies, and procedures and
the impact they have on California’s small business employer
community. The goal of the SBEAC is to work in partnership
to better serve California’s small businesses.
COMMITTEE PURPOSE
The SBEAC provides small business employers and the
EDD’s Tax Branch the opportunity to better understand
each other’s needs by addressing issues of mutual concern.
The SBEAC plays a significant role on behalf of the small
business employer community in California and has provided
feedback to the EDD’s Tax Branch on various tax policy and
procedural initiatives.
The committee’s focus is on three main areas:
To provide Tax Branch with the customer’s perspective on
the EDD’s programs and services.
To identify ways for the EDD’s employment tax program
to better serve the small business employer community.
To propose employer education and outreach programs.
The following examples outline the contributions the SBEAC
has made to the state’s employment tax program:
e-Services for Business and the Accounting and
Compliance Enterprise System (ACES)The SBEAC has
been an integral part of the success of ACES through
participating in discussions about processes, forms,
marketing, and the testing of e-Services for Business.
Committee members ensured that the concerns of the
small business employer were heard throughout the
development of this system, and they continue to play a
vital role in the continuous improvement of e-Services
for Business, including:
o Providing feedback regarding system updates.
o Testing and providing recommendations regarding
the e-Services for Business User Guide.
Ongoing involvement with EDD payroll tax forms,
publications, and programsThe SBEAC provides
ongoing feedback and offers recommendations
concerning the EDD’s forms, publications, and programs.
Examples include:
o Redesigned DE 1 registration forms, which
consolidated elements from the now obsolete
Change of Employer Account Information, DE 24.
o Reviewed and provided input on the content and
design of both the Tax Branch Mandatory E‑file and
E‑pay for all Employers Tip Card, DE 536, and the
Unemployment Insurance Branch SIDES Tip Card,
DE 8807.
o Reviewed program tutorials to ensure information is
clear for the small business employer community.
Development of the Employment Determination Guide,
DE 38The SBEAC was an integral part of the creation
of this guide which was designed to assist the small
business employer in determining whether a worker is
an employee or an independent contractor for California
payroll tax purposes.
Tax Branch Management InstituteAs part of the EDD’s
continuing education of its leadership team, the SBEAC
