Why Would I Outsource My Payroll?

payroll outsourcing

Business owners feel a sense of ease in bringing in outsourced people for various parts of their operations, but when it comes to ensuring their employees are paid on time and everyone is accounted for they tend to want to keep that in house. Of course, this does not always mean that everything goes swimmingly on your end, and can leave you in the bad books with your staff if payroll is messed up or missed. The easiest benefit that you could have is payroll outsourcing services from a bookkeeper.


Worrying over payroll being correct every month is something that unnerves a lot of business owners, as it takes a lot of calculating employees’ pay in advance of the pay date and addressing any changes or issues so they don’t cause friction at the end of a month.

In working with bookkeeping services for your payroll duty, you are left with peace of mind that payroll information has been submitted to HMRC on time and all queries to do with it are dealt with on your behalf.

Knowledge of Situations

As a business owner doing your payroll, you will have come across new situations where you have had to research and learn the most recent ways of calculating and applying tax. Changes in taxes and laws come with a lot of understanding, and you may not have time to figure them all out on top of your day to day activities.

In outsourcing your payroll to bookkeeping services in Manchester, you free up not just the time in doing payroll but also all the time learning how it changes and what to do to keep on top. Bookkeepers keep on top of changes and regulations with HMRC, with knowledge and expertise that can sort the change in minutes instead of you worrying it is all wrong.

Time and Cost

Your main concern is the running of your business day-to-day, with 100 things a day to dedicate your time to. Even if the payroll is straightforward it is still time away from what needs your most attention.

When payroll outsourcing, you can get the time you need for your business, and you don’t need excess costs on payroll software, Bookkeeping services have all of the best software in house and you are not paying a subscription for it. You are paying for the work being done and not signed up for an expensive package on software that will need constant updates. You also save on an employee to specifically tackle payroll work, saving on NI contributions, holiday pay and overtime.
