5 Spooky Payroll Myths

Outsourcing your payroll can be a time and cost saving move. We have the knowledge, technology and reporting capabilities to help you whether you are a sole trader or are multinational organisation. We also have professionals on hand to deal with complex tax and legalities so that you don’t have to.


2. It is more cost effective to do payroll in house…

Wrong! Employing a payroll department requires a full recruitment process incurring vacancy advertisement, hiring, training and wage costs. You will also need to budget in payroll software, IT support and security systems to minimise any risk.


3. Payroll services only process salary payments…

Myth number 3 centres around what we do when we say we are assisting with your “payroll”.

4. Payroll providers offer generic solutions and limited choice of services…
