Things to know about Payroll Services

Payroll services allow you to keep track of your employees’ hours and pay them. Payroll services can also help you track the number of hours worked by each employee, as well as their eligibility for overtime pay.

Some payroll services charge a percentage of payroll processing fees, while others may charge a flat fee to cover their services. Fees can range from £12 per month to as much as £50 per month, depending on the size of your business and type of service required.

Payroll services can help with many things, including:

  • Allocating wages and benefits

  • Managing withholdings and deductions

  • Creating paychecks and other forms

  • Processing payroll taxes

  • Providing training in payroll processes

There are a lot of things you need to know about payroll services before you start working with one. It’s important to know what the company’s policies are and how they work, as well as what types of services they offer. Here are some things to consider:

Compensation.  If a company offers a 401(k) plan, that’s great news for employees who want to save for retirement. But it means that the company might have some rules about how much money employees can contribute and how much they have to contribute each year. Some companies also offer voluntary 403(b) plans, which allow employees to save more money for retirement if they wish.

Employee benefits.  Some companies offer health insurance through their payroll service at little or no cost to employees; others require employees to pay for their own health insurance premiums. If your employer offers health insurance through its payroll service, it should cover 100 percent of your coverage with few exceptions — such as if you’re under 26 years old or if you were covered by COBRA when you left your job last year. The Affordable Care Act requires many employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide affordable health care coverage.

Payment Frequency: A good payroll service will allow you to set up recurring payments for your employees. This means that when you do an employee’s paychecks, there will be no need for them to cash a check or wait for several days before receiving their wages.

Payroll Accuracy: When an employer hires a payroll company, he needs to know that his employees’ paychecks are accurate and correct. If there are discrepancies between what is being paid and what was originally agreed upon, the employee may feel cheated and less likely to continue working for that company. For this reason, it’s important that employers find a reliable payroll company who can provide them with accurate information on what has been paid out each month as well as any deductions made from each check.
