A guide to managing your payroll in-house

Back to search results

As your business continues to grow, one of the key areas you need to focus on is payroll. And with that comes a decision – do you look at managing your payroll in-house or consider outsourcing it?

Each option has its pros and cons, so it’s worth looking at your business objectives before making a decision on how you will deal with your payroll processing.

If you’re looking at the in-house option, there are a number of things you need to consider.

When it comes to data and being compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), for example, if you’re dealing with your payroll in-house, you won’t need to worry about sharing confidential employee information with a third party.

Meanwhile, doing your payroll in-house means you can quickly and easily make last-minute changes if required.

It’s worth realising that you may need to have a dedicated payroll employee (or team) to deal with processing. Again, this comes back to your company’s goals and where payroll fits within them.

To help you with this, read our guide – Managing your payroll in-house – it features details on the benefits of running payroll within your company rather than outsourcing it.
