Now, we’ve shown you numerous benefits of outsourcing California payroll. Contracting with a payroll agency that knows all about payroll will allow you time to do your core business, not payroll business. It you have lingering doubts, many payroll service providers offer a free trial as an incentive.
Start out with their basic services package to determine if your needs are compatible with those the payroll agency offers. After you’ve settled on the agency that knows all about payroll you can add bells and whistles, like online human resources support.
The human resource feature provides email notices when Federal or State laws change. You’ll stay abreast of laws that affect your business.
The payroll agency employs professional accountants who know all about payroll. If your accounting staff is consistently making payroll errors, you may begin losing employees. Outsourcing payroll management is your assurance that professionals are working for you around the clock.
One of the first savings you can realize is a redeployment of employees who were managing payroll operations to positions that better fit their skill sets. As attrition takes care of downsizing, you’ll be paying out less money in salaries and benefits by eliminating the in-house payroll department.
With the payroll functions outsourced, risk of mistakes will increase drastically. If tax errors are made the service provider should assume all or part of any tax liability.
Keep in mind that cheap payroll services usually don’t have the best reputation. Like anything else, expect to pay a fair price to get quality service. Also, ensure the service provider you select has a professional office and helpful staff.
Whatever you decide, your employees must be paid correctly and on time. Unless you or one of your employees knows all about payroll, your best bet is hiring a payroll agency
