When payroll is not done correctly, such as data errors or missing payroll periods, it can cost your business a significant amount of time and money, no matter how big or how small your business is.

However, your company’s payroll does not have to be that chaotic. The key to a successful payroll is a streamlined process offered by a payroll outsourcing provider.

Not only does payroll outsourcing meet the unique requirements of your company, but it also makes sure that your company’s payroll complies with the tax and labour regulations in Indonesia.

So, are you ready to choose a payroll outsourcing provider in Indonesia to save you from the headache of handling the overwhelming payroll process?

Your company needs a payroll provider that is always on top of the current technology trend because of the always-changing technology. Giving wages or salaries to employees involve several options such as direct deposit, physical checks, cash, or online bank transfer. Therefore, you need to know the best option for your employees to get money and decide which payment technology is best suited for your operations.

A user-friendly software is also vital when considering a payroll provider. A cloud-based software can help to keep track of all payroll-relevant information and updates easier. All requests can be done instantly as long as there is an Internet connection.

What should I expect from the customer service of my payroll provider in Indonesia?

Since your business runs at least five days a week, you should also expect that your payroll provider will attend to your requests and issues at all those working hours as well because you never know what and when issues will arise.

Thus, always seek a payroll provider that offers Single-Point-of-Contact (SPC) support. SPC streamlines customer support and service and it can save you the hassle and time.

We all know that sharing sensitive data with an external third-party can be intimidating. This may be one of the reasons most companies are hesitant to engage a payroll provider.

To prevent crashes and breaches of your company confidential data from happening, you need to look into how secure your data are stored by your payroll provider. It is imperative for your payroll provider to have a disaster recovery system as well.

What can my outsourcing provider do other than payroll?

Oftentimes, a payroll provider will also offer HR functions in their services. To make the most out of your money to boost company’s efficiency and productivity, you may also enquire your provider if they offer other effective business solutions.

These business solutions may be the handling of employee benefits and insurance, payment processing, and loan management. A provider with all these offerings will make your life as a business owner much easier.

Will the outsourcing provider be responsible for any inaccurate tax fillings?

Mistakes in tax filings have cost businesses a substantial amount of money. While tax fillings errors can come from inaccurate information provided by business owners, they can also be caused by the provider – 100% accuracy is almost impossible.

Therefore, you should always opt for a payroll provider who will take the responsibilities and pay for the mistakes made.
