As payroll regulations and requirements become more complicated each year, it is important to review the technology you are using to manage payroll for your employees. Is the technology keeping up with your process and automating updates from HMRC? Can your technology scale as your business grows or are you finding yourself using more manual processes to ensure compliance? How do you know if you have outgrown your payroll software?
Ease of Use
Is your payroll technology intuitive and easy to use or does it take hours to navigate to get payroll done? Does the system automatically update with new changes or do you have to update manually? If your software is cumbersome or outdated, it can be difficult to manage payroll each month, train new team members how to use it, and lead to mistakes. Having a software that everyone can use and software that updates with new regulations is key to a successful payroll process.
Payroll technology has to scale with your business as it grows. If you’re adding employees or trying to integrate payroll with other software and systems, your software should be able to easily adapt to new changes and integrations. If your payroll system can’t keep up with your business demands, you can end up with compliance issues, data errors, and inaccurate payroll.
Start by auditing your current software to identify improvements, manual processes that could be automated, possible compliance issues, and integration opportunities. This audit can help the team better understand the technology available and ways to simplify the payroll process. If you have outgrown your payroll software and it’s time to make a change, talk to our team.
