What is Managed Payroll?

Managed Payroll is a service used by businesses of all sizes to offset the burden that complex payroll processes may have on an internal HR or payroll department. The Managed Payroll Services required by your business may differ from another. Depending on the size of your business, the type of recruitment strategy you run, and the geographical location of your employees – you will require a specific type of payroll service.

Many companies choose to handle their payroll in-house, using a range of payroll software solutions to enhance their ability to pay employees accurately and on-time. Though, even companies with mature processes and their own payroll departments may still outsource some of their more technical processes to professional payroll companies with payroll bureau systems.

Furthermore, if your business employs overseas workers, then your payroll system will need to be structured to meet the local legislation regulations of your employees workplace. This can be some of the most challenging and time-consuming tasks in payroll.

Thankfully, many types of managed payroll services exist to aid with all the above.
