Payroll is a process of accessing and calculating the total amount paid to employees of your company. It includes wages, deductions made as per company policies, bonus and other increment details pertaining to the total salary accorded to a particular employee. This process is important not only for financial purpose of the company but also for tax filing. Wrong in any of these planning can have disastrous result for the company.
Another benefit is that this task can either be undertaken by the company or can be outsourced. Many companies believe in performing payroll function in-house only as it is much more cost effective, less risky as they do not have to disclose sensitive information like wage details of all the employees and is easier to handle all the last minute adjustments in the salary of employees.
Inspite of having these advantages there are companies who would prefer to outsource payroll process as they are less expensive, hassle free way of paying employees and filing for taxes. However, these benefits of can only be availed if your payroll service provider is adept in their work and is not making mistakes every single time by paying wrong amount of salary to any employee. So it is imperative that you remain very choosy while selecting a provider.
Many companies are of the opinion that processing paycheck in-house is cost effective and feasible. However, that is only true if the payment to employees is stable and not changing very frequently. Furthermore, if you are processing payroll internally you need to have employees who are extensively trained in handling these tasks and also know how to manage accounting program employed by the company. Also you should be on top of all the news relating to payroll like personnel, deadlines and tax requirement etc.
With companies growing at a regular pace and also having employees working different number of hours and shifts, it is recommended that they do outsource their payroll tasks. Another important basis for companies who outsource payroll process is those which have significant size of turnover or have offices in multiple states.
Another important note to keep in mind, while choosing any service provider is what kind of services you require. Primary services offered by all payroll service providers are as follows:
• Calculation and Payment of Salaries to all Employees.
• Services for tax obligations.
• Print and deliver pay checks.
• Maintaining management reports.
Some of the additional services offered by Proficient Payroll Service Providers:
• Automatic check signatures.
• Direct check deposit.
• Issuing W-2 forms.
• Integrated HR software system.
