Processing payroll in-house without a payroll agency can be an administrative burden to a growing Small and Medium-Business (SMB). Manually tracking employee timesheets, computing hours worked, calculating gross wages and statutory deductions are all time-consuming tasks. Furthermore, many SMBs are faced with the growing risks of payroll fraud and non-compliance with local laws which have the potential to cost tens of thousands of dollars in losses, penalties and interest.

Benefits of an Outsourced Payroll Agency
Wise business owners focus on generating sales, managing their staff, and creating new processes to improve efficiency and save time. Pushing paper and entering data in Microsoft Excel should not be the culture within your business. Our payroll agency allows Start-Ups and SMBs to achieve the following benefits:
We protect the confidentiality of your payroll information which ensures that staff members are unable to access or view the salaries paid to other employees or management.
Focus on Core Activities
We provide your business with more time to pursue value added and income generating tasks by removing the need to manually process your payroll internally which requires a great deal of time and attention to details.
Compliance with Government Regulations
We ensure that your business is compliant with local payroll laws such as National Insurance, Health Surcharge and Income Tax acts ensuring that your business isn’t faced with any penalties or fines for non-compliance.
For us, what distinguishes FirstLink from the many accountants we’ve dealt with in the past is their adoption of modern technology to reduce the tedious and administrative processes and their focus on providing clients with not only accounting services but value added advisory and consulting services. As business owners, we’re not necessarily savvy in finance or legal, however, we can always depend on FirstLink for any issue we are facing. We feel like the relationship with FirstLink is more partners for life as oppose to just a client – accountant relationship.
The team at FirstLink introduced our business to Xero accounting. It has given us a lot more control over our financial information and for non-accountants; it is extremely easy to use. The Xero Mobile App easily allows us to send invoices to our customers on the go and tracks when the invoices have been viewed by them. I would definitely recommend Xero and FirstLink to anyone looking to implement cloud software to gain real time financial information to improve their business.
