Do I Need Payroll Software for My Small Business?

by Tim AustinMay 24, 2018 8:00 AM

Let’s be honest; what business owner looks forward to managing payroll? While payday may be exciting for your employees, it’s likely that you’re not thrilled about having to put together payroll reports, track deductions, and oversee every other critical aspect of payroll administration, especially if you do everything by paper. 

For some small business owners, payroll administration is just a necessary part of business life and the business isn’t big enough to justify its own HR department. While payroll administration is necessary, it doesn’t have to be a big burden. Online payroll software can give you the tools to take some of the pain out of payday preparation. Here are a few questions you should consider when evaluating your payroll management process.

To Insource or to Outsource: That is the Question

by Hanna JohnstoneFebruary 24, 2017 8:00 AM

Why did you start your business? Maybe because you are good at doing something. Maybe because you can offer a service that not many others can.

You worked hard to grow your business, to show everyone why they should use your company for their needs. You are a professional, and nobody knows your business better than you do. So why would you ever consider outsourcing back office tasks to a PEO if you can do them yourself?
