What’s so special about April anyway?

Written by  Thursday, 28 May 2015

Were you umm-ing and ah-ing about switching payroll providers this April?
Hesitant because it’s your first time outsourcing?
Too busy to worry about improving your payroll systems?

Next April is only 11 months away… But why wait until then? It’s a common misconception with payroll that it’s April or never when it comes to outsourcing or switching providers. But that isn’t the case!

Okay, so swapping over in April means there is no need for year to dates totals for employees, but we’re not worried about that so you certainly shouldn’t be! We’d just need the totals so far for the year, and this will all be extracted from your payroll system and seamlessly transferred into ours. Better yet, if your payroll is ran on SAGE, we can even extract the data for you!

Another option would be to parallel run your payroll for the first few months. This entails your new provider running the payroll from April as if it were live, then obviously just not paying the employees. This process may cost you more, but can help to build your confidence that your new payroll provider is familiar with your payroll before the first live run.

Whichever method you decide on, don’t hang about until next April! If you want to discuss your options for outsourcing or switching your payroll, just call us on 03331 123 456.
