Outsourced Payroll

What is outsourced payroll?

Outsourced payroll is where a company hires an external organisation to handle their payroll function. Often referred to as ‘managed payroll’ or ‘back office payroll’, it’s a low-risk solution to payroll problems. Using an external provider ensures employees get paid each month, without the hassle of having to do it in-house.

By giving another company this responsibility, you can rest assured that your employees will get paid in full and on time, every time. What’s more, it’s compliant, reduces your administrative burden, and can save you a lot of time and money.

What are the benefits of outsourcing payroll?

There are many ways in which outsourcing payroll can benefit your business. Here’s just a few:

1. Compliance

Outsourcing to a reputable provider will keep you compliant with the latest regulations and any changes to the law. This includes things like GDPR and PAYE. They’ll also verify each stage of the payroll process, leaving no stone unturned in terms of malpractice or improper conduct.

2. Time

Running your own payroll can be a lengthy process requiring valuable resource, which could be better spent on achieving your business goals. An external provider will remove the stress and responsibility of paying your staff, as well as freeing up the time you currently spend on admin.

3. Cost

Outsourcing will help you escape the cost constraints of an internal payroll process. You’ll also avoid the need to invest in extra staff, training and payroll software. Not to mention any potential fines or fees in the event that something gets missed.

4. Efficiency

Using a payroll provider reduces the risk of potential errors whilst giving you all the benefits of their experience and expertise. What’s more, errors are less likely to be made meaning a higher level of accuracy is achieved. It’s an effective, low-cost alternative to running the function in-house. The best providers are also able to deliver tailored solutions to suit your business for maximum efficiency.

‘Danbro make a huge difference’

Back in 2014, we began working with MyMobileWorkers. Back then, they were a small business whose finance function was performed by management staff in their spare time. Since joining Danbro, the company has grown exponentially. Both their turnover and employee roster has doubled during that time. As for their payroll function, according to MD, Graham Whistance, ‘thanks to Danbro, that’s all taken care of.’

“Before we switched to Danbro, finding the time to do things was a real struggle. We needed someone to remove that burden and bring much more professionalism and support to the finance function. Danbro took the time to come in and show what they could do for us. What they presented looked and sounded like exactly what we wanted. It’s has been that way ever since,” he added.

“The service Danbro provides includes processing payroll and managing accounts. They also conduct weekly bank reconciliation and weekly debtors and creditors’ runs. Their regular visits to our offices make a huge difference. Outsourcing is always a concern. Danbro understand our business and behave like our personal finance team. They pay for themselves.” You can watch Graham’s interview, in full, here.
