What are the Benefits of Small Business Payroll Outsourcing?
Many small business owners put off outsourcing their monthly payrolls because they think it is expensive or they have invested in software which does the job for them.
Five Benefits of Outsourcing to GeekBooks
1. Security and Compliance
GeekBooks payroll specialists are always up to date with payroll and tax legislation which can change every year at short notice. This gives you peace of mind that your payroll gets managed in line with ATO regulations eliminating the of being hit by significant fines or penalties. All our software and systems are also approved by the ATO to provide managed payroll services.
When it comes to payrolls, security and privacy is also a significant consideration. We use the latest technology, including state-of-the-art firewalls, antivirus software and encryption tools to ensure all employee and payroll data is kept secure. Our systems and network are also monitored 24-hours a day to reduce unauthorised access.
2. Full Visibility and Control
Our service enables full visibility and control for all your payroll activities. We supply you with monthly reports which show how much each employee has been paid, including monthly expenses, pension commitments, holiday and expense management, attendance, statutory sick pay and much more. Giving you peace of mind that all your payroll tasks are in order and that your employees get paid on time. As a result, many of our customers report they have more time to spend on building their business and supporting their customers, which is, after all, why they went into business in the first place.
3. More Cost-Effective
Outsourcing your payroll to a trusted partner is more cost-effective than doing it yourself. You won’t have to maintain expensive software or pay for an employee/ accountant to run payrolls for you. Everything handled done for you in exchange for a small monthly management fee.
There is no getting away from it; running the monthly payroll is a time-consuming task. Even if you only have a handful of employees, it can take several hours to update payrolls information and send out payslips. And that assumes there haven’t been any legislative changes.
5. Reduced Errors
Paying employees incorrectly or late causes a lot of problems for both you and them. Delayed wages can lead to staff going overdrawn, which can leave you having to pay overdraft charges. At the same time, errors with payroll tax can put you in hot water with the ATO and lead to expensive penalties.
At GeekBooks, we operate a transparent pricing structure with our payrolls packages starting at just $25 an hour. This service includes monthly reports, payslips, holiday entitlement, pension commitments and expenses—everything you need to keep your business running smoothly.
At GeekBooks, our payroll specialists manage this process for you. All we need is the name of each employee, their salary, holiday entitlement and how many hours they have worked. Our online portal makes it easy to submit this information securely in just a few minutes. No more spreadsheets or even a calculator, just easy online payroll management the way it should be.
By outsourcing to one of the most innovative payroll providers Australia has ever known will give you peace of mind that your payrolls are processed in line with the latest tax regulations. The result is fewer fines and penalties from the ATO, plus your staff are guaranteed to be paid on-time every month.
Can I Part Outsource my Payroll to You?
We don’t provide part outsourcing at this time. Part payrolls are only cost-effective for larger companies which want to retain some level of control over their monthly payroll. Part outsourcing is not cost-effective for most small businesses since you still have to retain a member for staff to run your payroll through our system.
We do provide a range of monthly reports however which allow you to keep track and monitor your monthly payroll activities. You are also assigned a dedicated account manager to handle all problems and queries. So unless you have hundreds of employees there isn’t any need to use part processing.
Payroll Outsourcing FAQs
While the benefits of Payroll outsourcing are obvious, many small businesses owners still have questions to ask regarding the service and how it works. We’ll attempt to answer these questions in more detail here. If you have a question we haven’t answered, get in touch with us by completing the contact form here, and we’ll be happy to help.
How Much Does Payroll Outsourcing Cost?
The answer is less than you think. We offer a range of affordable packages which start at just $25 an hour. Features of the standard service include regular monthly payrolls, secure payslips, compensation, sick pay, time attendance, and holiday entitlement for all eligible employees.
You will appreciate that this is a small price to pay once you have taken into account that you won’t incur any ongoing payroll software costs or need to pay any admin staff to run monthly payrolls for you. By outsourcing, you also reduce the risk of getting things wrong which could result in a hefty fine or penalty from the ATO.
Will I Lose Control?
This is something many small business owners are worried about. But with our secure online portal and regular monthly reports, you will have all the visibility and control you need to keep track of your payrolls data. And, if you have any questions, your account manager is on hand to provide support when you need it.
Your Questions Answered
How Long Does it Take to Set up?
We know that running a small business is time-consuming and stressful. Many small business owners simply don’t have the time available to make complex changes to their back-office operations. That’s why we make it as painless as possible to outsource your payroll to us. We have established systems in place to set up new clients quickly. In most cases, we can set up your payroll in a few hours. But we usually request that you allow at least two weeks before your next payroll run. This is to ensure your new system is running smoothly before going live.
When outsourcing your payroll you will be sharing confidential salary information with your payroll service company. For this reason, you need to ensure you are using a trusted partner with the right security protocols in place to ensure your data is kept secure and all data protection regulations are adhered to.At GeekBooks our systems are designed to be secure from the ground up. All data shared and stored by us is encrypted which ensures no unauthorised persons can see it. We also employ strict security protocols which limit the number of people who can access your data at our end. All this gives you peace of mind that your data is secure. If you would like more information about our security protocols get in touch with us here.
What if Something Goes Wrong?
When you manage your payroll, the buck stops with you. Some people like this responsibility. But most people prefer to have support in times of crisis. At GeekBooks, every client is assigned a dedicated account manager who is available to answer questions and fix problems when they arise.This arrangement works well because it ensures you have support when you need it, unlike managing payroll yourself, when you have no one to fall back on. The result is most payroll problems get sorted out quickly and without fuss. Many people choose to outsource their payroll for this reason alone.
Doesn't Payroll Software do the Same Job?
Payroll software is great, but it still requires a member of staff to input data every month. Most payroll software is designed for medium-sized and large companies with several hundred employees. Using such a solution for a small business is overkill and not cost-effective. Plus you will still have the problem of regulatory compliance.That’s why for most small businesses, we recommend outsourcing your payrolls to a trusted partner. This reduces the risk of making costly mistakes, frees up time for running payrolls every month, does not require expensive software subscriptions and ensures you remain in line with current ATO legislation.
