What is the real cost of your payroll?


Several large retailers have recently appeared in the press over major payroll errors costing millions to rectify and damaging their reputation as employers. This raises the question: what is your payroll really costing you?

Many businesses are still processing payroll as a bolt on to Finance or HR, creating key-man dependency where it is one person’s responsibility, and opening them up to risk where there is a lack of technical and compliance knowledge.

Outsourcing payroll has become a popular choice for businesses of all sizes around the world because it brings with it a range of benefits that positively impact both cost efficiencies and overall business performance. These benefits include:

By outsourcing your payroll, you could save your company approximately £30k per year, as well as having access to all the experience and knowledge you need to ensure your payroll remains complaint with legislation. Additionally, if you outsource payroll, you are not required to purchase or maintain costly payroll software.
