A timer showing the passing of time.

Running your own payroll is complicated and time consuming. If you haven’t considered outsourcing your payroll yet, let us help you by giving you the FACTS.


Outsourcing payroll saves time and increases productivity. Keeping track of benefit deductions, new starters and leavers, paid time off and changes in legislation is a frustrating task for anyone. This can be especially trying for someone who also has to run the day to day operations within the business. Outsourcing your payroll allows employers to concentrate on their core business and frees up the business owner to work more on strategic tasks that could ultimately affect your bottom line.


The direct costs of processing payroll can be greatly reduced by outsourcing your payroll. For small businesses, having an in-house payroll process is a money burner. Work it out yourself, understand how many labour hours you are devoting to payroll activities such as;  calculating payroll each time period, printing, signing and distributing payslips, software and program maintenance, training and support, keeping up with changes in tax rates and legislation, preparing and remitting payroll taxes…the list goes on!

Calculate how much you’re spending and compare the amount to the plans offered to by us – we know you’ll be surprised by the result.

Penalties for errors or late payroll tax filings can be costly.
