Having Headaches with Payroll Even Now? Consider Outsourcing Before Seasonal or Holiday Upswing

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Payroll

Anyone that has dealt with payroll – for either large or small businesses – knows what a headache it can be. It is time consuming and MUST be done properly, to forgo a myriad of legal issues.

This is especially true for business owners who hire new staff for seasonal or holiday upswings.

The Coming Local Season and Holiday Season

In Southwest Florida, record numbers of seasonal residents arrived earlier last year with the harsh winter weather from the north and a repeat is expected this year.

Holiday shoppers are expected to start shopping earlier, due to a perceived improvement in the economy and earlier retail distribution and promotion of holiday items.

Many business sales numbers this year may revolve around a possible earlier fall flux. If you want to prepare for that recruitment trend, consider outsourcing payroll.

Billions in Mistakes

Due to what can be sheer complexity, The Internal Revenue Service has reported that one out of every three employers have been charged with a payroll mistake, resulting in billions of dollars in fines collected.

Professional payroll services that maintain expert staff can potentially save you from being one of these statistics.

Payroll Fluctuation

Financial experts assert that businesses who have payroll changes each pay period benefit greatly from professional payroll services. That can include varied employee hours and high turnover.

This is often the norm with seasonal and holiday-oriented businesses and also growing businesses. ROI (Return On Investment) is obvious in the weighing of outsourcing payroll versus internal man hours.

Your Time is Money

More and more, business owners and managers know that every day can bring a new challenge, and quick response is a key to customer service and online (e-Commerce) success.

Will your budget be better served with key staff meeting those challenges?

When choosing a payroll company, look for testimonials.  Check a company’s website for actual customer experiences. They are most often earned by a job efficiently and well done.

Direct Deposit

Some smaller businesses are finding that handling the ever-growing demand for direct deposit is better handled through payroll services. Gone are the old days of time consuming trips to the bank to handle payroll.

Upgrading Payroll Software

Another benefit of outsourcing is eliminating the cost of payroll software upgrades.  If you need to upgrade.
