Frequently Asked Questions
How does outsourced payroll services work?Once considered only accessible for larger organisations, now businesses around the world of every shape and size are outsourcing their payroll services. Businesses usually choose to outsource payroll services due to the efficiencies, compliance, and cost savings they gain from using a specialist payroll provider.
How to choose the right payroll and HR service for your business?When picking a payroll and HR service for your business, it’s important to first consider your business's needs. Not all payroll providers offer the same level of services and benefits. Choosing the right provider should go further than just payroll. Does your business require rostering to manage a casual workforce? Or does your business have a workforce with multiple sites, field-based operations or flexible and working from home arrangements? In this scenario, you are going to want a payroll provider that offers cloud and mobile capability to keep your workforce productive and connected. By identifying your business’s payroll and workforce needs, it will be easier to identify which provider can offer a solution that best caters to your requirements.
What are the pros and cons of outsourcing payroll?If you are considering outsourcing your payroll, there are a couple of pros and cons to take into consideration.Pros
- Time savings – Allows you to spend your time on your core business operations.
- Greater compliance – Outsourcing ensures your payroll, super and related tax obligations are calculated accurately and paid on time.
- Cost reduction – You no longer need to account for resources to manage in-house payroll operations.
- Complimentary benefits – A good provider will have supplementary services available to assist you with other areas of your business.

Is it more expensive to outsource payroll as compared to doing it in-house?Handling payroll in-house will likely cost your business more than it would to outsource it. Payroll and taxes are usually best handled by an expert who can provide greater efficiencies. Employing an in-house resource or bookkeeping expert can be expensive and likely not cost effective. By hiring a professional payroll provider, you can also save your company money from potential costly penalties related to payroll and tax compliance.

What is the difference between HR and Payroll?It depends on the business!

It comes down to your business’s unique needs and what makes the most sense for it.
What services should payroll outsourcing companies offer?If you are considering outsourcing your payroll services, a few things to ask prospective companies include:
- How many clients does the provider have?
- How long have they been in business for?
- What is the basic service that they are offering? And what additional services do they provide?
- Are rates charged per payslip? If so, how much?
- How exactly do they secure confidential employee and payroll information?
- Do they assist with lodgements for super, tax and third-party payments?
- What software do they use to manage the payroll? And what features do you and your workforce have access to?
How secure is outsourcing payroll?As long as you pick the right payroll company - it is highly secure. This is because a professional payroll provider understands that security is one of their most important selling points, and they need to ensure their software is prepared to defend against any potential data breaches or cyberattacks. It is important to check that a provider has all the relevant certifications, procedures, policies and infrastructure in place to ensure a secure environment.
