Outsourcing Payroll

The prize for the “worst single waste of time for a business” must go to those who handle payroll internally rather than outsourcing it. Payroll is the ultimate commodity where, for a miniscule outlay a month as a percentage of payroll, you can offload a complex, time consuming task.

How many things are you doing in your business that could be handled by another organization that specializes in just that task and does it better than you ever will? By insisting on handling it yourself, how much time do you waste and, more importantly, how much risk are you taking?
