Covid-19 is continuing to make its presence felt. It’s been a difficult time for SMEs on many fronts. For those responsible for payroll, it’s been a rollercoaster ride. Yes, businesses have welcomed government support to get through the pandemic. However, implementing the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is not without its challenges. That’s where the benefits of a payroll service come in.


Benefits of a payroll service

Payroll is a necessary business function. Unfortunately, it doesn’t help to grow your business. Increasingly therefore, smaller organisations are considering outsourcing. So, what do you stand to gain?


Low cost and hassle-free

Quite simply, it takes the pressure off. It can also save you time and money. Doing payroll inhouse can take up a lot of staff time, which can prove tricky if payroll is only part of someone’s role. Leaving it to specialists frees up resources. This, in turn, maximises employee skills. Fundamentally, it means you can focus on running your business.


Accurate and reliable

One of the key benefits of a payroll service is accuracy. You’re trusting experienced professionals. Therefore, the likelihood of serious errors is extremely low. This is important because mistakes often lead to penalties. Our payroll experts ensure your employees are paid what they are due. And that they receive their salaries on time. It makes life easier for you and everyone is happy.


Reduced risk

Crucially, you benefit from enhanced data security. We have technologies in place to keep you safe. There’s reduced risk of identity theft, for example. Also, we can spot the potential for payroll fraud.


Experience and expertise

For peace of mind, you can rely on our expertise. We understand your business. We know the rules governing tax and employment law. We keep up to date with current legislation. Importantly, we can adapt quickly to regulation changes and new initiatives, such as furlough. What’s more, we implement proven procedures to ensure accuracy. Consequently, we can process complex payrolls quickly.


Latest technology

A payroll service affords access to the latest technology. The bonus? You don’t have to pay for the privilege. You don’t have to invest in IT equipment, software upgrades or training.


Flexible solution

Trusting your payroll to experts brings added flexibility. We deliver a tailored solution. It’s purpose-designed for your business. And it’s cost-effective. You’ll get everything you want. But you won’t pay for things you don’t need.


Keep communicating

At Howards we believe in an ongoing dialogue. In fact, communication is really important to us. That’s why we assign each client a dedicated point of contact. Accordingly, dealing with queries is easy. Just pick up the phone. And it’s not a one-way street. We’ll stay in touch. This way, we can make sure your payroll service continues to meet your needs as your business develops.


Unfortunately, payroll is often time-consuming. And it’s sometimes complex. If you’re having difficulties keeping on top of things, we can help.
