Frequently Asked Questions

Should midsize businesses outsource payroll?

Outsourcing payroll tax calculations, filings, and payments can benefit businesses significantly. However, when it comes to actual payroll processing, it might be more advantageous for midsize businesses to manage this task internally. Employing a dedicated internal HR, accounting, or payroll staff member to handle payroll through ADP’s payroll software can enhance your employees' experience. The internal employee would be well-versed with company policies and would have easy access to managers and supervisors. By maintaining payroll operations in-house and utilizing software that’s efficient, your company is less likely to overlook important payroll details such as employee bonuses, salary increases, overtime pay, and other elements that often require regular communication with managers and employees.

How do midsize businesses manage payroll?

Typically, midsize businesses rely on a small HR or accounting team to process their payroll. These staff members may have other critical areas of responsibility, which means they would find it difficult to dedicate all their time to payroll. In such cases, HR staff may require support from their payroll vendor to ensure payroll systems are running smoothly. In addition to that, midsize businesses can be exposed to compliance burdens due to their larger headcounts. ADP's payroll solutions offer a helping hand to such businesses by ensuring compliance with compensation laws and handling payroll administration. This way, HR staff can save time and focus on other important duties.

How do I select a payroll solution?

When selecting a payroll solution, consider a provider that aligns with your business’s size, sector, and the type of workforce you have (whether it includes employees that are across the border, remote, contractors, etc.). For a midsize business, it is important to look for a system that not only fits your current setup and workflows but also has the flexibility to adapt as you grow and hire more people. Contact our team today so they can provide you with comprehensive advice to assist you in your decision-making process.

What is the best payroll software for my midsize business?
