Could your organisation benefit from outsourced payroll services?


Benefits of outsourcing your payroll:

  1. Save time
  2. Reduced costs
  3. Get industry leading accuracy and precision
  4. Reduce risks
  5. Stay compliant
  6. Access experts
  7. Reduce compliance risks
  8. More time to focus on essential business activities

Running a business takes time and money. Processing payroll in-house is complicated, time-consuming, requires a lot of attention to detail and investment in internal resource, especially if payroll is not a core function in your business. In addition, internal teams are required to stay up to date with ever-changing legislation to avoid costly consequences of penalties and fines.

By outsourcing your payroll, you free your team from all these responsibilities and risks. You leave your payroll processing to expert hands of specialists who are fully equipped with the knowledge and expertise of payroll related functions and will ensure that your employees are paid accurately on time and every time, in line with legislation, reducing risks and leaving your teams to focus on their core activities, productivity and results.

One of the main benefits of outsourcing payroll is that it almost always comes with a significant cost reduction for businesses. There is a large number of costs associated with running and maintaining an effective payroll function in-house, especially if payroll is not the main function within the business.

Having an extra resource of specialists, extra office space, a reliable and an up-to-date payroll system, latest technology, as well as the necessity for continuous training of the internal team on latest legislation are only some of the obvious costs companies have to consider when running their payroll in-house. An outsourcing company will have all these costs distributed amongst its multiple customers, making the service beneficial and worthwhile for both, their customers and themselves.

Speak to our team to discuss your payroll needs and requirements and we will help you identify a service that suits your business the most.

Security is of paramount importance to us and we go to great lengths to ensure your employee data is secure with our outsourced payroll. Outsourcing your payroll to us means delegating all its related functions and obligations to experts in the field who continuously invest in latest technologies to provide the customers with a reliable service that offers maximised security, having in place robust mechanisms for data protection, disaster recovery, compliance and assurance (SOC2, ISO9001, ISO27001), monitoring and support.

Benefits of automated payroll:
