How Using Managed Payroll Can Improve Your Businesses Compliance

Running a business can be difficult and when payroll compliance is thrown in the mix it can be increasingly complex, especially if your business has no prior knowledge of the payroll industry. However, with managed payroll you can remove all of the stress of managing processes internally and remain compliant.


What is managed payroll

Managed payroll is when a business outsources all or part of their payroll processes. This is often more cost effective for companies and improves accuracy and efficiency levels.


How managed payroll can keep you compliant

Staying compliant with the latest rules and regulations is essential to helping your business run successfully, keeping staff happy and avoiding fines, penalties and even business closure. 

Examples of how managed payroll can improve your compliance, include: 

Gaining access to qualified professionals

When you opt for managed payroll you gain access to experienced payroll professionals that understand the latest tax laws, compliance regulations and payroll best practices. Having this level of expertise in control of your payroll processes ensures tasks are completed accurately and that you stay compliant.

Whether you’re choosing to have part or all of your payroll processes managed by a payroll provider you’ll have access to professionals with years of experience and extensive knowledge of the industry. This means they can handle diverse scenarios, help you implement best practices that are tailored to your business and offer informed advice. This all contributes to keeping you compliant and managing your payroll efficiently.  

Improved reporting and analysis

Managed payroll often provides enhanced data analytics and reporting, giving you better insights into key aspects of your payroll and business practices. Reports can give insights into payroll expenses, tax liabilities and other important financial metrics.

This allows businesses to identify trends, forecast future costs and make data driven decisions that make a positive impact on both staff and customers. Additionally many payroll providers offer software that allows data reporting to be personalised to measure the things that really matter to your business. Utilising this can help you stay compliant as you’ll be able to keep an eye on any changes or processes that may be causing issues. 

Accurate tax calculations and filings

When you run payroll internally it can be hard to accurately calculate tax deductions for your staff. However, when you opt for managed payroll, accurate tax calculations and filings are guaranteed.

The expertise of managed payroll providers combined with sophisticated software and technology allows your business to stay up to date with rules and regulations, calculate payroll correctly and keep staff happy, all while staying compliant.

Payroll software also stores data safely and in line with GDPR laws and regulations, furthering your likeness of staying compliant.  


Many payroll providers offer the ability to integrate various software like payroll, HR and time and attendance. This means that critical data is stored in one centralised location, that’s easy to access by staff and complies with GDPR and security regulations.

Integrating your software also reduces the chances of errors, duplicated data and files, as well as ensuring consistency across employee records, time tracking and financial reporting. For example, updated working hours in time and attendance software is automatically updated in your payroll software, helping to reduce discrepancies and keep you compliant.
