How to Determine if You Need a Proper System for Your Payroll

If you’ve ever had problems with payroll management, then you should understand the whole task of making sure your payroll accounts are correctly done. It is no joke – it requires time, diligence, effort, and a thorough knowledge of the current rules and regulations that HMRC sets forth. Proper payroll management is indeed a task that is often underestimated, and mistakes in payroll management can result in significant and often dangerous consequences for your business.

For these reasons, many business owners are looking for that alternative system that allows them to perform their duties efficiently and correctly every time. But what fits best for you? Here’s how to determine if you need a proper system for your payroll – and what it entails.

What systems are available?

There was a time when business managers were able to do their payrolls manually; unfortunately, this is now virtually impossible due to HMRC’s Real Time Information scheme (RTI). If your business has fewer than nine employees, you can use the HMRC Basic Payroll Tool. For businesses with more than eight employees, there is other software available that is compatible with the HMRC system and therefore approved.

The advantages and disadvantages
The obvious advantage to a payroll system (available on the shelf for only about £200) is that everything happens electronically, so you don’t only get an efficient accounting system that avoids mistakes and reduces time spent on payroll management, you can send reports and forms to the HMRC electronically.
Unfortunately, there is still the question of GIGO – Garbage In, Garbage Out – so if you enter the wrong data, your forms and reports will still contain errors. The user of such a system still needs to understand what needs to be done.

 How to choose

There are more than one advantages that makes choosing payroll management an obvious choice. You can always keep a track of them that will make you get the better of the thing. Some of the ways that will enable you to do so are-

Check out the various systems and see what the costs are. Some charge a monthly fee, whilst others charge per employee you manage. Costs vary. Fortunately, most payroll systems allow you a free trial.

Your accountant should be able to give you great advice about which system fits best for your business.

There is one other option out there, and often it’s the best way to go: outsourcing your payroll management to experienced payroll companies. There are some real benefits to doing that, and it’s no wonder more and more business owners and managers opt for this convenient solution.

Not only is it very affordable, you are sure the payroll management is done on time, correctly, and by professionals who understand the concerns of your business. This leaves the manager and owner free from hassle and headaches, and gives them time to focus on what is important: the future of their business, and figuring out how to grow and grab the opportunities out there in the best way.
