Is outsourcing worth the time and effort?
You will no doubt be surprised to learn that the step that all companies must perform, file maintenance, is responsible for no less than 83%1 of the overall cost of running the payroll.
In other words, once you've finished your part of the work, the tasks that you pay a subcontractor to do represent just 17% of the total work.
Your tasks for preparing payroll
to creating and managing employee files
to compiling payroll data (hours worked, benefits, vacation, etc.)
The tasks that you outsource
to pay calculations, issuing cheques, transferring direct deposits and government remittances
to end-of-period tasks and producing T4s and RL-1s

The Real Costs of Sub-contracting.
The Acomba Payroll solution has a fixed cost, regardless of the number of employees. The only thing that varies is the cost of your supplies.
In comparison, you pay for each operation performed by a subcontractor. The costs vary according to the complexity of the operation, the number of payroll periods or the number of employees.
Typically, you have to pay:
Basic fees from $17 to $25 per pay period
Fees around $1 per pay to produce
Fees between $1 and $2 per T4, RL-1 or employment record to issue
Fees for each special monthly report required
Fees to create employee files
Fees to include current cumulative amounts on pay slips
The following table shows the evolution of the cumulative costs of producing payrolls externally and in‑house.
