Payroll Services: Green Light Outsourcing With These Considerations

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 241

When you're a small business trying to get a firm foothold in the economic realities of the world, the term "outsourcing" is usually one you don't want to hear. It means spending money, and that's something you want to curb until you have a healthy profit margin. What many small business owners don't realize, however, is that sometimes outsourcing can be much more profitable than performing a task in house. When it comes to payroll services, there are a number of benefits to having an outside entity manage the books. Here are some of the things to consider when deciding whom to hire.


This is one of the most important qualities to look for in a payroll services company. You don't necessarily want a freelance accountant who did the books for a single company for a year. This isn't the kind of experience you're looking for. You want a company that has been doing this for several years and has come across many different types of businesses. They are prepared for the unexpected. They won't be thrown for a loop by special requests and unusual occurrences. Outsourcing should be easier than doing the job in house. If it seems as though it will be more of a hassle to let another company handle the compensation process, it may not be worth the trouble.


Don't sign up for a payroll services company that fails to guarantee their work. A lot of things can go wrong in the compensation process, which is why you don't (usually) see people without education and experience handling it. Chief among the pitfalls is the chance of getting the taxes wrong. The IRS doesn't play around when it comes to a business failing to report the correct earnings and payouts. If your processor is to blame for mistakes in this area, they should also be responsible for paying any fees and back taxes that may be leveled by the government. Make sure they are willing to take that responsibility on before signing up.

Reviews and Recommendations

Don't simply hire a payroll services company because you liked the way their website looked or because their sales rep was convincing and friendly when he came by for a chat. While there is nothing wrong with a company having those traits, you want something more before you decide who you want to hire. Look for reviews of the company. Find out who other, similar businesses are using and what they think of their processors. There's no need to make a mistake that many others have already made.
