To save time. Outsourcing our payroll gives us the freedom to concentrate on other projects within the finance function. We selected Payroll Options because we like the people, they seemed highly capable and we got on well.
It’s reliability. Payroll is a critical business function after all. We get decent reports, and everyone gets paid on time, that’s the main thing. Payroll Options are everything you would want from an outsourced payroll provider and the initial payroll that we get back is usually spot-on.
They do the bulk of the work, we do the checking of course, but setting up BACS payments can take a day or so, plus all the charges means the cost saving is considerable – at least £3k a year from software subscriptions alone.
Yes, I recommend outsourcing. We did it to focus on running our business. Payroll Options are great, they give us a heads-up when there is likely to be a heavy workload like Christmas, end of year or regulatory changes so we can be prepared – they’re on the ball and have always been responsive.
