Payroll management is constantly evolving  and is being regulated by countless of laws and regulations. Constant changes and requirements for reporting, storage and privacy makes it necessary to keep employees up to date. In addition, there are many other factors that can influence a possible choice of outsourcing your company's payroll administration. 


10 questions you should ask yourself: 

  • What challenges does your company have? 
  • Does the internal payroll administration occupied valuable time? 
  • Do you have the necessary expertise? 
  • Do you manage to stay up to date on all changes in laws and regulations? 
  • What are the costs of keeping payroll administration internally? 
  • How many employees in your company can carry out the payroll badge? 
  • How many people know the rules for handling and reporting of payroll? 
  • How effective are your internal routines? 
  • Have you benefited from the technological solutions available? 
  • Are the rules for GDPR and privacy complied with? 


Profitable financially? 

Having an internal payroll department will often involve a fixed, high cost throughout the year since you would probably like to have one or more employees for these tasks.  

The amount of work may vary throughout the year, and the need for employees working overtime during periods of high workload may also increase the cost of this function. If you choose to outsource this function, you are ensured that you always have the necessary coverage at peaks, avoid stress and poor quality – all elements that can accompany such a situation. At the same time, you avoid an unnecessarily high cost when the workload decreases. Savings can also be seen in automation, efficiency, and quality differences at work. In addition, it is easy to forget the costs you have for training, software, and other costs you can cut or at least significantly cut by outsourcing. 

Nevertheless, many people are intimidated by the cost when they directly compare the price of outsourcing and the hourly rate of having their own employees. However, it is important to remember that the hourly rate of an employee and externally hired labor are never directly comparable since one must also calculate the social costs such as employer's contribution, holiday pay, pension, and other welfare costs. In addition, it is difficult to calculate the efficiency and quality differences that can be achieved by using a professional partner. 


Technological solutions 

There are many different solutions for automation and increasing efficiency. Both in terms of routines, work processes and technological solutions. We know and can adapt to most of the solutions you have today, while being able to help you find systems and solutions that will work in your specific situation.

Outsource all or parts of your HR and payroll administration 

Outsourcing your payroll administration does not mean losing control of this important function. On the contrary, with the right outsourcing partner you are kept on top of things due to a continuous dialogue. However, if you still want to keep parts of you HR and payroll administration in-house, a hybrid solution can be a good alternative.  

In any case, it can be beneficial to share the work with a professional actor. Cloud-based solutions provide a high degree of flexibility and give you the opportunity to do some of the tasks yourself.
