Payroll administration: Does your business really have the resources to attend to it yourself?

The payroll function of a business is a critically important task. Yet it is not a core business function and, as such, one can question the disproportionate demands it makes on time and resources, and how it adds to the pressures and deadlines that a business owner faces on a continuous basis. Keeping abreast of the regular changes that the South African Revenue Service (SARS) makes, sometimes without due notice, adds to the compliance risk of any business.

Therefore, many businesses make the informed decision to outsource their payroll administration to a competent service provider with trained professionals that have sufficient experience and technical knowledge of dealing with payrolls and the relevant legal requirements.

With 30 years of combined experience in payroll administration and compliance work for clients in a variety of industries, our payroll department has what it takes to deal accurately and punctually with any payroll task.

ASL embraces new technology, and we use this to our advantage to be more efficient in processing payroll and communicating to our clients, which includes electronic payslips and reporting, as well as integration with certain cloud-based accounting packages. Our service offering can be tailored to suit your business’s specific needs, but will always contain the following elements:

  • Capturing of all relevant data in our reliable and secure software packages (a choice is made between VIP payroll and a cloud-based application that integrates with other accounting packages such as Xero Accounting);
  • Providing each employee with a confidential payslip (either electronic password-protected or pre-sealed hard-copy payslips);
  • Monthly reports provided to management; and
  • Ensuring legislative compliance with SARS and the Department of Labour.

Outsourcing your business’s payroll function will provide peace of mind that the payroll is run efficiently, correctly and in compliance with all the relevant legislation, and will allow you more freedom to focus on the core activities of your business.

Do not hesitate to contact Jaco van Straaten (jaco@asl.co.za / 021 840 1600) if you are considering a change in payroll administrators or outsourcing your payroll. We would be happy to discuss your needs and see how we can provide a tailored, customised service to your business.
