Good payroll systems influence your business in a number of ways and it doesn’t have to cost the Earth. Here are just a few of the effects good payroll can have on your organisation.

Employee morale


The first and most obvious aspect to payroll is to properly, accurately and reliable compensate employees for their time. Payrolls are usually managed weekly or monthly and the impact of a late or incorrect salary payment can be detrimental to the morale of the individual or team. Many employees rely on their salary to pay bills, mortgage or rent payments so a missed payment can have severe consequences which is why Payroll Options provides every client with 2 payroll administrators who run each payroll in parallel to ensure that we deliver an accurate, low cost payroll every time.

Regulatory compliance


In the UK there are a number of statutory payments that need to be managed correctly by payroll to ensure that neither the business nor employees miss out. These include Tax, National Insurance, Statutory Sick Pay, Statutory Maternity Pay, Statutory Paternity Pay, Statutory Adoption Pay & student loans. It’s important that these are administered correctly to avoid potential losses. At Payroll Options we are BACS approved and have multiple data validation steps and audits to ensure RTI compliance with HMRC delivering great service at a low cost per payslip.

Reputation Impact


A consistent, reliable and accurate payroll outsourcing service helps to reassure employees that the business they are working for cares about their welfare, but it also ensures that your legal obligations are met. The efficiency of meeting tax regulations helps establish an employer’s reputation which will ultimately help to attract the best talent.

Save time and resources


Managing a payroll, especially as your business grows, can be a very complex and time-consuming process. With each employee the volume of funds grows and the margin for error increases. As such most organisations have done away with their spreadsheets (does anyone remember Lotus Notes?) and chosen one of two solutions: Self-managed using payroll software or outsourced payroll through a bureau.

Whilst payroll software promises to reduce the resources needed to manage your payroll it increases complexity and can cause some businesses to run into problems as they pay for expensive licences to automate inefficient or incorrect processes. Outsourcing your payroll completely removes the administrative burden from your business allowing you to free up time and resources. If you’re managing your own payroll then imagine how you could redeploy that time more efficiently by simply outsourcing this function?

Outsourcing costs less than
you think, and we’d like to prove it.
