Why You Should Hire a Payroll Company

Whether you're a new entrepreneur that just started a business or an already established business, you probably know that managing payroll has its difficulties. Sometimes, even the most experienced business people have trouble keeping up with ever-changing regulations and staff numbers. With this in mind, many are choosing to hire a payroll company. If you're currently facing this dilemma, allow us to explain why you should do the same!

Accountability and Tax Expertise

Did you know that nearly half of all small businesses which handle their own payroll make errors that lead to fees and penalties? Why take this risk and potentially leave your business in financial trouble when you can have professionals look after payroll instead? Not only do they know how everything works, but they also stay abreast of all regulatory changes, making them less likely to make mistakes.

Over the years, we've seen people say the following: "Well, even if the service does make mistakes, it's still us that has to pay the price." This is a great point, but more and more payroll companies are now offering a guarantee so you don't pay for their mistakes.

If the IRS spots an issue with the tax filing that comes from your payroll, the service will take responsibility. With all things related to tax, we think it's better to err on the side of caution anyway; imagine the peace of mind that comes with having a professional handle all the paperwork and filing.


If you've tried to handle payroll yourself, you know how time-consuming and frustrating it can be. After hiring a payroll company, you won't have to deal with this sort of thing, and you have more free time to help employees, communicate with clients and perform the tasks for which you were initially hired. Whether you're a manager or owner, you can add more value to the business rather than sitting behind a computer trying to make sense of deductions, allowances, and taxes.

Financial Reporting

In addition to the help you receive with payroll, we also love to recommend payroll companies because of their ability to provide financial summaries, timesheets, payroll-per-department reviews, earnings statements and more. In an instant, you can review whatever information you need, and then use this to make stronger business decisions.

Let's not forget to go through payroll alone, you would need to invest in software and other technology. With a payroll company, they have several other clients like yourself, which means they have the industry's best technology implemented already. Therefore, you're paying for:


●access to high-quality tools and resources

●a reduced chance of mistakes and errors

●happy employees


As you've just seen, you'll have a team of happy employees. Why? Because they get their pay as expected: on time and in full. For employees, there's little more frustrating than chasing down mistakes related to pay. Of course, many have families to feed and bills to pay. Hiring a payroll company helps minimize pay-related complaints, so employees remain motivated.


As our final reason for hiring a payroll company, we return to the idea that these services have numerous clients across a wide range of fields. With this, they're accustomed to dealing with sensitive information and have security procedures in place to protect your information.

On this note, remember to choose a payroll company with experience, a positive track record, and reliable customer service. If your chosen service works as hard as you, it will be the perfect match as you both grow together!

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
