What is outsourced payroll?

Outsourced payroll refers to the practice of using a specialist company, like Cezanne HR, to take care of the administrative and compliance activities associated with paying your employees. Sometimes described as managed payroll, an outsourced payroll service provider ensures that payroll is processed smoothly and securely, and in line with legislation.

Benefits of Cezanne HR’s outsourced payroll service

By outsourcing your payroll management to Cezanne HR, you reduce the workload on your in-house staff, and improve accuracy and compliance.

Cezanne HR’s outsourced payroll service uses the data you already have in your Cezanne HR software to calculate payroll entitlements, generate reports and deliver payslips to your employees. Our team of inhouse payroll experts carefully check your data before every pay-run, and will liaise with HMRC to resolve any questions or issues if needed.

Information doesn’t need to be re-entered, sensitive employee data is kept safe and under your control, and your employees always know where to go to get their latest payslips.

Not every organisation is comfortable outsourcing their payroll processing to a third party. That’s understandable when HR or finance teams don’t have a single, accurate source of pay-related data to rely on. If data has to be compiled from multiple sources, it’s too easy for errors to creep in; new joiners get missed, updates to tax codes are overlooked, timesheets aren’t submitted, or leavers don’t get processed properly. In those situations having an inhouse team on hand to check the data is essential.

However, with Cezanne HR’s outsourced payroll solution that problem goes away. That’s because all the data needed to accurately process payroll – from time off and timesheets to tax codes and new joiner and leaver data – are managed in a single system.

How does an outsourced payroll service work?

As your payroll provider, we’ll automatically take the data needed to process your payroll from your Cezanne HR system. This includes information about your employees, such as their name, hire or leave dates and bank details, as well as relevant data from Cezanne HR’s absence management and timesheet modules. Our UK-based team of payroll experts then uses that data to process your payroll and generate the reports required by HMRC and yourselves – as well as upload payslips or other statutory documents to individual employee records. We are also able to manage pay processing if required.

How will my business benefit from outsourced payroll?

  • Time savings

    Outsourcing payroll can save time for HR and finance teams, as payroll processing can be time-consuming and requires attention to detail. By outsourcing, businesses can focus on their core activities and leave payroll processing to a specialist.

  • Cost savings

    Outsourcing payroll can help businesses save money on labour costs, as they don’t need to hire staff with the knowledge and experience needed to manage payroll. Additionally, outsourcing can help prevent costly errors that may result from inexperience or lack of training.

  • Compliance

    Payroll regulations and tax laws are constantly changing, and it can be difficult to keep up with them. Outsourcing payroll to a company that specialises in payroll can help ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid costly penalties.

  • Security

    Payroll information contains sensitive data, such as NI numbers and bank account information. Outsourcing payroll to a company that is trained in handling confidential information can help protect against security breaches. In addition, with Cezanne HR’s smart managed payroll service, your payroll data is kept within your Cezanne HR system, meaning you’ll never have to worry about the risk of sharing sensitive data with third party providers via Excel spreadsheets.

  • Expertise

    Payroll outsourcing companies have experience of handling complex payroll issues, such as deductions, tax withholding, and reporting. This can help businesses avoid mistakes and ensure accurate payroll processing.
