Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What are the types of payroll services?

Payroll services are offered by third-party companies which manage your payroll processing, ensuring all your employees are paid accurately on time, every time in compliance with local regulations. The type of payroll services being provided differs depending on your specific business requirements. Typically, a payroll outsourcing vendor can offer a range of services from monthly salary calculations, disbursements, and reporting. Additional services such as leave, claims and time and attendance handling may also be provided.

2. What is payroll outsourcing?

Payroll outsourcing refers to the process where a business or enterprise enlists the help of a third-party payroll processing company to support the management of the administrative & compliance functions of paying employees. This function is usually seen as an administrative burden and can result in penalties from statutory departments if regulatory requirements are not met. A business can easily outsource to a payroll provider to help ease internal HR resources, increase cost-savings and reduce risk for the business.

3. How does payroll outsourcing work?

A company looking to outsource payroll will first need to provide the payroll vendor with their basic employees detail such as employment date, occupation and salary for the initial payroll setup. On a monthly basis, the outsourced payroll vendor will help to calculate the employees’ salary amount with the information from their timecard data and any mandatory contributions, before processing the salary payment.

By outsourcing the work, the administrative task is completely taken care of by the outsourcing provider without much involvement required from the company, thus freeing up valuable resources for the business.

4. What are the benefits of outsourcing payroll?

Outsourcing your business’s payroll has several benefits that can lead to improvement in maintaining compliance and maximising efficiency of payroll, as well as freeing up time for you and your HR employees to focus on growing your business.

Some benefits by outsourcing to BoardRoom include:

  • Time savings by outsourcing the administrative tasks
  • Enhanced security with BoardRoom’s proven Ignite HRMS Payroll System
  • A team of regional payroll experts to provide advice on regulatory compliance
  • Improved employee access with our Ignite Payroll mobile application

5. How much do payroll outsourcing services cost?

Pricing for payroll outsourcing services can vary depending on the scale and comprehensiveness of the payroll service at hand. The range varies depending on your specific requirements, the expertise of the vendor and the platform used, but is typically calculated on a per employee per month basis. Factors that also influence  cost include the number of headcounts, complexity of payroll handling and any value added tasks that need to be performed by the payroll vendor for you.

Other additional costs typically include one-time implementation fees, data migration, integration with other HR software (if required), and more. Get in touch with us for more information regarding pricing.

6. How to choose a payroll and HR service provider for your business?

Each business has their own set of distinct needs, and the payroll service provider should be able to meet all of them. Start by considering what these needs are. Do you need a company that offers a full suite of HR payroll services or just to roll out monthly payslips? Once you have a clear understanding of this, finding the right company becomes significantly easier.

Get in touch with us at BoardRoom if you want help identifying your business needs as well as how we can help you.

7. What is the best software for payroll management?

Each payroll services company will use software that best suits their way of working. At BoardRoom, we use Ignite, our all-in-one cloud-based HRMS payroll software. Ignite is capable of managing the most complex payroll processing requirements, and can meet all local legislation compliance in 10 countries across Asia.

With a reputable company, outsourcing your payroll is a secure process. When considering which company to hire to help with your payroll, be sure to look for testimonials and customer reviews. You can also look for whether they have any certifications, like ISO 9001, ISO 27001, and SOC2.
