How do outsourcing and fully managed payroll differ?
Traditional payroll outsourcing focusses on data entry and pay processing. A fully managed service moves the entire function to a trusted partner.
What should I consider when outsourcing payroll?
Find a payroll provider you can trust. Ensure they have the people, processes and technology to pay your staff accurately and on time.
When is the best time for a business to outsource payroll?
If payroll is taking up too much time, you can’t find qualified people and accuracy is questionable, now is the time to outsource.
Is outsourcing payroll to a provider cost-effective?
With the right payroll provider, yes. You’ll reduce reliance on people, gain back time and lower the risk of over or underpaying staff.
