What should you look for in a payroll outsourcing service?
Choosing a poor or inefficient outsourced payroll company provider can land you in a heap of trouble. It will also make you very unpopular with your workforce if they do not receive their payslips securely and on time, or if you have not used the latest tax code from HMRC.
That’s why, when it comes to your business’s payroll, it’s wise ensure it is done 100% right every time.
If we were choosing a payroll provider ourselves, these are the 3 main aspects that we would be looking for. Why not tick off the ones that you feel you are getting from your current provider?
1. A friendly, payroll professional who is always happy to talk to you.
Our dedicated team of payroll experts work out of our office in Saffron Walden. Most of them have worked in our payroll department for years – and you’ll soon get to know them by name. They’re always happy to talk to you: no chatbots, no recorded messages, just a helpful payroll professional at the end of the phone, whenever you need them.
2. State-of-the-art, secure payroll software that saves you time
These days, employees expect to access their payroll records at the touch of a button. The last thing you need is for them to pester you for copies of past years’ payslips or P60a. Our system, created by Able Internet Payroll uses a secure portal so that every employee can access all their payroll records online at any time 24/7. You’ll be relieved when paper or email payslips are firmly a thing of the past!
3. A swift and cost-efficient service
We have spent many years refining our payroll processes, ensuring that every payroll run is carried out quickly. Any adjustments required or complex additions or deductions can be applied to each payroll run in record time. This efficiency means that the service we provide remains very competitively priced.
