Payroll operations may not be the most exciting area of a business but it is absolutely integral to its success. At Leskun & Son Accounting, we help small businesses develop and integrate payroll solutions that are simple, efficient and cost-effective. Our small business payroll solutions allow our clients to spend more time focusing on customers, and less time worrying about payroll operations. If you are considering making changes to your payroll operations, first read our list of tips to improve your small business payroll operations.
Establish clear, concise payroll policies that all employees can understand
In order to improve your small business payroll operations, it is important to first establish some basic systems and standards. For small businesses that do not have a separate payroll department or choose to outsource payroll operations, it can still be beneficial to elect a company ‘payroll champion’. The ‘payroll champion’ is an employee who is well versed in a company’s payroll policies and can help to educate all employees about payroll policies and procedures. Before rolling out new payroll procedures, ensure that all employees are informed and fully educated on the changes being made.
Integrate payroll operations with other systems and software whenever possible
With payroll operations, the more integration the better. Nowadays, it is easier than ever to integrate payroll systems and software across various devices and platforms. Time tracking, scheduling and human resource software can all be seamlessly integrated with payroll systems to produce time-saving results for small businesses.
Go paperless with payroll operations
There are many benefits to going paperless with payroll operations. Small businesses continue to switch to paperless in order to reduce their carbon footprint, save money and improve security measures. A paperless payroll system can also help small businesses save time that would otherwise be spent manually filling out time sheets, pay stubs and other payroll documents.
Do not be afraid to outsource payroll operations
Many small businesses are afraid to outsource payroll operations because they feel that there is a perceived risk involved and that they could lose control entirely. This is not the case. Allowing a professional payroll service provider like Leskun & Son Accounting to help manage payroll operations provides small business owners with more time to focus on what is most important, the customers!
