Managed payroll services refer to outsourcing payroll operations, including payroll processing, tax compliance, and more, to an external company. As a professional employer organization (PEO), GMS offers various managed payroll services, helping businesses make their payroll functions more efficient. 

Payroll management encompasses all tasks related to payroll operations, optimizing the entire payroll function. Strategic planning, tax compliance, benefits administration, payroll processing, and all responsibilities related to payroll are handled through payroll management. 

Payroll processing is a more specific procedure that falls under payroll management, explicitly focusing on the accurate distribution of employee compensation. Tasks related to payroll processing include calculating and disbursing employee wages, tracking PTO, and withholding deductions.

Outsourcing payroll management to an external company such as GMS conserves time, resources, and money, allowing businesses to focus more on core operations and growth. Because outsourcing payroll services offer expertise in payroll functions, they can increase efficiency, catch mistakes, and ensure compliance.
