Solving Common Payroll Challenges
As payroll teams look back on the last 18 months, there have been many legislative changes that have impacted payroll and continue to change the way payroll is managed. Many payroll complications have arisen due to the job retention scheme and extensions, but now as operations get back on track it’s time to think about common payroll challenges you might be facing and how to solve them this coming year.
Payroll software is the first place to start when looking at your payroll process. Does your software give you real-time access to payroll costs and automate changes to payroll regulations? Can you create custom reports each month to view trends and spot problems or inconsistencies? If your team is growing or you’ve been using outdated software, it might be time for an upgrade.
Reporting is another key factor to managing payroll each month, but many companies face challenges with lack of data or access to automated reporting. Creating manual reports is too time-consuming and often error prone. Using a payroll software that allows you to create custom reports each month is vital to maintain compliance.
Integration and service capabilities is another challenge companies face when it comes to payroll. If your payroll software doesn’t integrate with your HR or accounting software, many duplicate processes are needed each month and data can’t be shared between systems. If your payroll software doesn’t offer an expert service team to help when questions arise, your team can spend days or weeks trying to figure out complex requirements. Finding a software that integrates with other company systems and provides expert advice and support when you need it.
