Why Outsource Your Payroll?
Running a business requires you to wear many hats, some of which likely fit better than others. But while there are many aspects of your business that may be okay to learn on the fly or through a process of trial and error, payroll should not be one of them. Your employees count on you to pay them the right amount of money at the right time, and with the correct withholdings each pay period. The complexity of tax laws make it very difficult for most businesses to stay on top of changes in labor and payroll tax regulations putting your company at risk of being out of compliance.
Due to the importance of payroll processing accuracy and consistency, there are a number of reasons to consider outsourcing your business’ payroll duties to United Payroll Services, LLC.
Here are just a few of those reasons:
You can save time
How much time are you or a designated employee spending on payroll each week? Chances are, it’s more time than you’d like to be spending. Regardless of the number of employees, processing payroll demands a great deal of time and attention to detail. The cost of time is greater if you are the owner or senior officer of a company and you are preparing or overseeing payroll yourself. Outsourcing this function to United Payroll Services will immediately free up precious time for you and your staff to pursue more value-added and revenue-generating activities for your company.
You can save money
In business, time is money – and if you or your staff are spending time each pay period calculating payroll, signing checks, remitting payroll taxes and more, that may not be the best use of your company’s money. Use your staff more efficiently by letting us handle your payroll processing and associated tasks. Your direct costs of processing payroll can be greatly reduced by working with United Payroll Services. When you consider the cost of your wages or an employee’s wages and benefits, sick-time or vacation, and other expenses, such as printing checks, acquiring and learning computer software, training, and support, outsourcing your payroll functions to United Payroll Services will more than likely save you money.
You can minimize your risk
Penalties for errors, omissions, or late payroll tax filings can be very costly. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), one out of three employers is assessed a fee for a payroll mistake. The IRS estimates that over 40 percent of small businesses pay penalties of over $800 per year for late or incorrect filing of payroll tax returns and payments. With the ever-changing stream of legislation regarding payroll laws and taxes, compliance is essential to avoid mistakes and penalties. State and federal governments enact new labor and payroll laws frequently.
Many times, businesses that do their own payroll don’t know about the changes that may affect their business or even know how to find out. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse in the eyes of the IRS and state authorities. Outsourcing your payroll to United Payroll Services results in accurate payrolls and knowing you are compliant rather than hoping you are, giving you peace of mind.
