How Easy Is Outsourcing Payroll

12 July 2014- 13 min read

The professional meaning of payroll outsourcing translates to getting in agreement with a service provider who becomes responsible for the company payroll. The service provider performs a diverse range of functions including calculation of employee salaries, tax withholdings and ensuring compliance with local laws.

Why outsource payroll?

There are complex payroll regulations in New Zealand; The Holidays Act 2003 is a prime example. Our company, KeyLink, lives and breaths all of New Zealand’s payroll legislation and regulations, so you don't need any expertise regarding the process as we can get the job done for you.

KeyLink takes into account each pay period when analysing data, which makes us well-versed with all your employees and so we can promptly answer any queries. You will also save time and money involved in hiring specialised payroll staff which can cost you $10,000 or more per year above the cost of an accounts person.

The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
