    Executive Summary

    Every organisation wants to make sure that its people are being paid accurately and on time. To make the payroll process run as seamlessly as possible, organisations may choose to either run payroll processes in-house, or outsource instead.

    When deciding between outsourcing payroll or handling it in-house, payroll teams need to weigh up the benefits and drawbacks of the two and choose what works best for the entire organisation, but this can still be a difficult task.

    In this guide you’ll discover:

    • The difference between in-house and outsourced payroll
    • The benefits and drawbacks of each
    • The key points you need to consider when choosing between in-house or outsourced payroll
    • What you should ask potential payroll providers
