But when employer obligations keep changing, how on earth do you stay in control of it all?
An easy way to stay in control
Being in control is probably one of the reasons you decided to start your own business. But “with great control comes great responsibility”.
Um, hang on. Maybe the original Uncle-Ben-Spider-Man-quote actually said ‘power’?
Anyway, the point is, you spend every waking minute keeping multiple plates spinning. You probably spin them in your sleep too, which is why you regularly wake up at 3am in a cold sweat, remembering something you forgot to do…
As a business owner, you’re accountable for all the big decisions. And probably a lot of the smaller ones too. You’re busy balancing your work with your life, but the ‘stuff you need to do’ never ends. If it’s not the work to-do list, it’s your kids, your dog, or your mother-in-law.
How far up your list of priorities is ‘keeping up-to-date with changing payroll legislation’? Or ‘keeping an eye on national minimum wage changes’? Really though? You know it’s important, sure! But so are a lot of things you need to do.
For peace of mind and one less thing on your to-do list, have you thought about outsourcing your payroll? It’s an easy way to stay in control of paying your people.
If you’d like a bit more information about what payroll outsourcing looks like, take a look at our brochure – it’s free to download.
And if you haven’t already, maybe just check you’re paying everyone at or above the national minimum wage rate!
