Payroll Outsourcing

Payroll administration is an important part of any business – no matter how small.

It’s most likely any company’s largest expense, and the most time-consuming work performed each month. Even the most meticulous and experienced professionals find that payroll can be a challenge and, with the increasing pressure and responsibility of employers in all sectors, many businesses have opted to outsource their monthly payroll administration to payroll specialists as it offers an attractive and valuable alternative to in-house processing.

CR van Wyk Payroll Services was initially registered to service in-house clients in 2008. From humble beginnings with only a few payroll clients, the department has grown into an independent,  fully operational part of the CRVW Group, providing payroll administration services to clients in Namibia and South Africa.

Our internal structure and policies provide clients with secure and accurate data as each payroll is subject to extensive checking and approval before finalization. Our services are adapted and explained on custom fee proposals that are prepared to suit each client’s unique requirements.

Why Outsource?

Save Time
Time is money – If you calculate the time it takes to correctly process payroll you’ll be surprised how much the labour costs.

Apart from calculating the hours worked, other earnings like commission and bonuses as well as deductions including PAYE and Social Security should be calculated, and record of all leave transactions should be kept to ensure leave provisions are accurate and correctly paid when required. Following the initial processing, relevant and accurate reports should be printed and payslips must be distributed.

Save Money
Although you might consider outsourcing an extra cost you don’t want or need, it can actually save you money on overheads.

You won’t need to pay in-house employees to manage payroll, including their benefits, vacation, time, and other benefits/perks and you also won’t have to pay for software or supplies. Additionally, payroll mistakes will be eliminated, so you won’t have to worry about paying costly fines and penalties.

Eliminate Errors
When you outsource your payroll, you eliminate errors that would normally occur if you were processing payroll in-house.  You won’t have to worry about a tarnished reputation among your workforce for incorrect paychecks and you’ll be assured of your firm’s good standing with all relevant statutory bodies

Access to Technology
On your own, accessing the latest software and technology can be challenging and the annual licence fees and updates of these programs can be quite costly. Outsourcing your payroll ensures you have access to the best technology to process payroll quickly, efficiently, and correctly.

Security and Confidentiality
Payroll needs to be kept secure to protect sensitive employee information. Should your offices ever get broken into or your systems get hacked, identity theft could be a real problem. Payroll fraud is another concern.

You have to be prepared for these risks if you process payroll in-house. The cost of keeping that data secure can get expensive. However, when you engage payroll processing services, those security measures will be put in place by your provider.
