Frequently asked questions

Are managed payroll services the same as payroll outsourcing?  

Although both payroll options help offload the burden of payroll processing, they do so differently. A managed payroll service invites a partner to organise, manage and execute your payroll processing in conjunction with your HR/payroll team. Payroll outsourcing, on the other hand, completely offloads payroll tasks to a partner, freeing your employees to handle other projects. 

Our Dayforce professionals are proud to offer both services, so keep in touch with us to learn more. 

What are the benefits of managed payroll services?

Managed payroll services help free up valuable time for your HR and finance teams so they can focus on other high-priority projects. Since payroll is a continuous process, the benefits of having this type of support grow with time.

If you’d like to calculate how much time, money and resources you could save with managed payroll services, contact our team today. With our ROI tool, we can give you targeted estimates to help with your organisation's decision.

What should I look for when evaluating payroll outsourcing service vendors? 

Payroll outsourcing services should offer a unified system for managing payroll processing tasks. You should also look for a vendor that keeps up with industry standards, changing requirements and taxation rules.
Our payroll professionals use Dayforce to help customise your payroll strategy, handle your payroll needs and generate reports for your review.

What services or processes are typically included in managed payroll services?
