Why Payroll is One Job You Should Outsource

Every successful entrepreneur will agree that there is nothing better than watching their business mature. But the bigger a business grows, the more salaries there are to pay.

Sadly, with today’s decline in economic growth, political uncertainty, ongoing load shedding, and an increase in petrol, food, inflation and interest rates – starting a new business can prove to be quite stressful. It’s not easy to fork out big salaries, including pension and medical aid, especially when you are running on a tight budget.

Recent statistics have shown that up to 80% of small businesses fail each year, with poor financial management and non-compliance as the leading causes. This begs the question: can you really afford to hire a permanent payroll administrator? There are many invaluable reasons why businesses outsource their payroll services, and if you are a start-up on the fence about outsourcing, take the following five reasons why it will be in your best interest to outsource payroll:

  1. Access to the expertise of professionals who uses only the newest technology.
  2. Compliance with government regulations.
  3. Enhanced data security.
  4. Overhead costs are reduced.
  5. You get to focus more on your core business.


As a business owner, you should be focusing your attention on sales growth, which is why payroll services offer an extremely valuable and cost-effective alternative to in-house processing. By placing your payroll processes into the hands of a highly skilled consultant who has a thorough knowledge of best practices, you will be able to make all your financial decisions with precision and perspective.
