Common Myths about Outsourcing Payroll, Part 2
3 More Myths Small Business Owners May Believe
Last month, The Payroll Department explored three common myths about outsourcing payroll that entrepreneurs may have:
- Myth #1: In-house payroll processing saves time and money – and is error-free.
- Myth #2: Payroll outsourcing is too expensive.
- Myth #3: Outsourcing payroll means I lose control over my payroll
However, these misconceptions simply aren’t true. To learn why, click this link.
If you have ever talked to a business consultant, you know they encourage small businesses to outsource non-core functions. Non-core functions are those that the business owner really doesn’t have the time or expertise to do. Plus, businesses don’t charge their customers for these non-core functions. In most businesses, payroll is a non-core function, so it is a prime candidate for outsourcing.
Nonetheless, many small business owners still don’t outsource their payroll processing, because they’re stuck on misconceptions about outsourcing. In this blog post, we talk about three more falsehoods that small business owners believe.
Myth #4: Payroll outsourcing setup is too complicated.
For some reason, small business owners think it’s going to be extremely difficult and too time consuming to set up a new payroll system with a payroll services provider. At The Payroll Department, we make switching over your payroll functions easy and painless. To get started with us, you only complete four forms. Then we call you to get the additional information we need. We do all the rest of the set-up work. Therefore, setting up your outsourced payroll isn’t as complicated as you may think.
