What is Payroll Outsourcing

Ensuring that your employees are paid on time and your organisation is compliant with current tax legislation, are two of the foremost and fundamental considerations of the everyday management of any business.

Payroll legislation and tax compliance are constantly changing which means that your payroll staff, systems and processes need to be continuously reviewed and updated in order to keep pace with these changes.

Organisations can free up valuable key management time by outsourcing the processing and management of company payroll.

Benefits of Outsourcing Payroll Services:

  • Time Savings – you can alleviate time constraints and free up key staff to focus on other aspects of the business;

  • Legislation – you no longer need to worry about having staff trained on new legislation changes;

  • Reduced costs – you no longer need inhouse payroll staff, you can eliminate software update costs and avoid the cost of training staff on legislative updates;

  • Ensure Tax Compliance – by outsourcing the payroll function you no longer have to worry about missing payroll filing deadlines. Your payroll returns and liabilities will be filed on time avoiding any potential penalties for late filings and reducing the prospect of tax audits;

  • Protection of employee data – Secure electronic payslips will ensure safe transmittal and protection of employee personal information;

  • Continuity of service – you can eliminate over-reliance on payroll personnel and avoid the disruption caused by absence or sick leave;

  • Data protection – greater security and protection of sensitive and confidential information.
