When does a company need payroll services in South Africa?

As a business owner, if you’re researching payroll services, you’re probably aware of the great benefits these services provide, as well as understanding that running payroll correctly and accurately is not as simple as it first appeared.

If you don’t have staff that are experienced or trained to run an effective payroll strategy and want to minimise the costs of internally employing someone for this burdensome task, you’ll still need to have a plan in place to ensure everything involved in your company’s payroll is completed.

When should you outsource your payroll?

Payroll is an essential component of any organisation. Payroll is important in businesses not just because it provides compensation to employees, but also because it is required by law for a company to continue operating.

Companies that begin hiring new employees and increasing their workforce will witness an increase in the quantity of administrative work required. This payroll administration process is crucial for having a solid payroll compliance structure in place – to guarantee that employees are paid appropriately, on time, and following rules and laws in South Africa.

There are also a lot of compliance documents and paperwork that need to be submitted (like the EMP501, PAYE, and other important returns). And is especially important during the tax season every year. Having a professional you can outsource this task to will make the payroll process efficient, cheaper, and safer for your business.

I agreed to work with someone called Conrad – and as soon as I signed, he ‘left the company’. Very strange, but I persevered, agreeing to pay for their top package for management accounts, payroll and basically all accountancy services. I now found myself with someone called Arnaud. Not for long, as I was swiftly palmed off to someone else.Over the last month, they’ve become really unhelpful, so we asked to leave. They’ve been charging us a registered representative fee for several months when their representative wasn’t registered at all. They’re completely ignoring this point and refusing to refund the months when no one was registered from Thryv on our behalf.They’re now trying to claw more cash from us to get the management accounts for months that we already paid for.Untrustworthy, unreliable and greedy. Don’t do it.
