In-house payroll comes with a lot of risk, including identity theft and embezzlement. Even if you are be confident that your payroll software is secure, there is also the safety of the server or network to consider. Quality outsourced payroll providers protect and store data on highly secure cloud-based servers and use cutting-edge encryption technology to ensure your critical information is safe. They also use electronic payment methods so that if an error occurs, it can be easily traced, helping to protect you against potential losses. This is all included in the outsourced service they provide, while attempting to do the same in-house would be very expensive.
