Why Payroll Outsourcing Is Beneficial to a Company

More businesses are choosing to outsource their payroll needs to focus attention on the core functions of their business. Non-core functions do not directly affect the success of a business. Payroll and administrative activities are considered non-core activities, which is why business owners are encouraged to outsource them.

Business managers understand the importance of streamlining non-core functions, but many are still unsure about the benefits they can gain by delegating payroll tasks. Is it really worth the time and effort to research payroll companies and transition to a third party?

Let’s explore the advantages of payroll outsourcing and the direct ways it can benefit your bottom line.

 

Save Time

Payroll requires substantial time and attention, even if your business is small. You are required to input data, check for errors, and ensure that you are in compliance with the latest federal, state, and local laws. All of this takes time, which could be better spent on the operations of your business. By hiring a third party to handle your payroll needs, you free up valuable time.

 

Save Money

One of the main reasons why businesses perform their own payroll needs is to save money. But, outsourcing payroll can actually save you money! Here’s how. Consider all of the tasks that you must perform:

  • Entering data and calculating payroll
  • Printing, signing, and delivering paychecks
  • Generating accurate reports for accounting
  • Preparing payroll taxes for government agencies
  • Reviewing the latest tax regulations

Now imagine that all of these responsibilities are delegated to an outside company, and you can focus on growing your business!

 

Improve Security

Not only is payroll a time-consuming task, but it’s also  a risky one. Identity theft and interference with company records are serious matters to consider.

Another issue is the payroll software that you are using. Is your confidential payroll data stored safely? Do you have multiple server locations and backup? Payroll providers put your mind at ease, as they have reliable systems for storing and securing data.

 

Stay in Compliance

Most businesses are not experts when it comes to government tax regulations, but the government won’t care if something goes wrong. As a business, you are expected to follow the laws, otherwise, you could face hefty audits or penalties.

Rather than paying out additional money, protect your business with a payroll service. Payroll providers are expected to keep up with the changing rules and regulations, which means your business will always be in compliance.

 

Get Professional Expertise

Professional payroll companies know all the details of payroll processing. If you have questions or concerns, your provider will be happy to answer them for you. A third party can also hook you up with conveniences, such as direct deposit and the latest version of payroll software. This keeps your business running smoothly.

  • Proposed Marijuana Legislation Leaves Employers in the Weeds

    While we hear a lot about the benefits of legalizing recreational marijuana—the business opportunities it provides, expungement of criminal records, where dispensaries will be located and the like—no one is talking about the human resource ramifications. Yes, decriminalizing recreational marijuana is a step forward in many ways, but as our home state of New Jersey inches closer to legalization, with New York hot on our heels, there are holes in the legislation that leave lots of questions for businesses. We discuss these issues in-depth in our op-ed that was published in Insider NJ. Read the full op-ed where Abel HR

  • Why Evidence-Based Decision Making Will Grow your Company

    A business owner wouldn’t make a decision without looking at the data behind it—what do the sales numbers look like? How much revenue do we need to make in order to offset the decision I’m about to make? Does it fit into the forecast? When folks discuss the role of HR, the first phrase to come to mind is unlikely to be “data-driven.” Instead, folks tend to believe that human resources focus on more human qualities: building relationships, promoting optimal communication, solving interpersonal issues, and managing career trajectories. However, evidence-based practice suggests that functions of HR managers can – and
