As a small business owner, your focus should be on building business. So, it would be a smart step to outsource certain tasks to suitable service providers so that you can direct your time and effort toward more productive jobs. Outsourcing your payroll-to-payroll services for small businesses would be intelligent on your part as payroll is a crucial part of the business. Managing payroll is a stressful, tedious and sensitive task. Apart from consuming a lot of your time and effort, it will create much confusion and invite huge penalties in case any errors are found by the IRS in managing the payroll processes. Once you outsource your payroll to a payroll service provider, you save your valuable time and energy and escape from the trouble of incurring enormous stress and hefty fines.

What to look for in a payroll service? It should provide you 3 critical services as discussed below-

  1. Paying Employees on Time- Your business flourishes due to the efforts of your employees. So, it is imperative to keep them happy and satisfied. Your payroll service takes great care to pay them on time and in an appropriate manner. They calculate the employees’ wages, withhold the desired amount of taxes and issue the paychecks.
  2. Paying Payroll Taxes on Time- When you have your payroll service to assist you, you don’t have the headache of reminding yourself every now and then about what tax is due and when. Your payroll service will do this for you by calculating your federal and state payroll taxes and keeping track of the due date for the payments of these taxes. See
  3. Filing Payroll Forms on Time- You might find it unexciting to file forms, but it is a vital part of your business. Again, your payroll service assists you by preparing, calculating and filing Federal & State Payroll tax forms on behalf of your business.
