Outsourcing payroll processing
services to the Philippines


What is outsourced payroll processing service?

Outsourcing your payroll processes involves employing a staff member or team of staff that’s external to your organisation. They’re able to take over every aspect of your payroll from timesheet collection and payroll processing through to administering pay slips, leave, tax compliance and superannuation. Companies often outsource payroll processing to offshore locations such as the Philippines.

Whether you’re a large business or small, outsourcing payroll tasks,allows you to focus on the more pressing matters that are core to their business success and growth. Offshore staff will take care of the very transactional and repetitive tasks associated with payroll, while your local team focuses on higher value work and tasks that will generate sales, increase revenue streams and improve client relationships.

Payroll processing by an offshore team, supports your local team and will cost your business less. Their tasks and responsibilities can include but are not limited to:

  • Processing weekly, fortnightly or monthly payroll
  • Reviewing timesheets
  • Ensuring accurate payroll transactions and payments
  • Maintaining accurate employee records
  • Preparing and dispatching pay slips and annual payment summaries
  • Inputting and updating leave, long service leave and other entitlements
  • HR administration including issuing contracts and letters
  • Managing WorkCover claims
  • Preparing and paying State and Federal tax obligations including PAYG tax, Payroll tax, Superannuation Guarantee contributions
  • Preparing monthly reports
  • General payroll enquiries
  • Working with required payroll software such as MYOB or Xero
  • Single touch payroll (STP) management and ATO reporting.

Why do businesses outsource payroll processing offshore?

Payroll processing is a fairly predictable series of tasks that are rules based, repetitive and transactional in nature. This makes it the perfect role to outsource offshore. It’s also very time-critical and relies on accuracy and efficiency.

Having a dedicated offshore payroll officer or team of staff, means that they are focused entirely on processing your payroll and any related HR tasks, and very unlikely to be distracted by other work. As a result, you can expect a timely delivery of payroll requirements with reduced inaccuracies.

By sending this back-office role offshore, you’ll be able to free up valuable time for your local HR team so they can focus on the more complex tasks associated with recruitment, performance management and team culture. Payroll often crosses over between HR and Accounting so it also frees up your accounting team to focus on invoicing sales, paying creditors and the overall financial position of your organisation. It also leads to increased job satisfaction for your local team members because they're focused on the more interesting tasks of their job roles.
