Let’s hope it doesn’t come down to this. But if you are in trouble with some sort of payroll issue, it’s always nice to have your payroll service near you. So you can get that payroll question resolved as soon as possible, perhaps even at the same hour you started talking to the payroll representative at the firm you just walked to, and are paying for their service.
Being able to travel down the road, or two blocks from your office can seriously get things done quicker than you’d expect. Sure, you could always invest into an online payroll service, to help you with all your payroll queries. But it’s not the same thing, than dragging the issue with you down the road, and to talk to one of the payroll supervisors about the issue. Doing things face to face, mono y mono, will increase the likelihood that your payroll questions and issues become resolved in a timely fashion.
Get Things Done Sooner Than Before
Now, in discrepancy with the hours a payroll service and firm operates, there will be a decrease in any type of slow response to getting your payroll queries answered. Meaning, instead of waiting a day or two to get your problems resolved, being able to talk to one of the payroll representatives down the block from your office will substantially increase your response time of solving payroll issues.
Time is money as they say, and getting your employees paid the amount they are supposed to be paid, will increase morale and productivity at your work place. It will also make your HR team a lot happier when you can resolve payroll issues in an hour, rather than days or weeks.
A Positive Sense of Appeal to Get to Know Your Payroll Agent
Being able to not just work with your payroll provider and service company, but to get to know them personally will make your assurance of their work that much greater. If you get to know your payroll service provider, and the team that makes sure your payrolls are done properly, will instill a sense of loyalty and responsibility, to make sure both sides of the spectrum are capable to enjoy their work, create ease not tension amongst both companies, and to build a reasonable professional friendship by both parties.
Since the Payroll Service Is near You, Why Not Invite Them to Have Lunch with You Sometime?
The added benefit of trying to build a relationship with the payroll service near you, is that it builds a sense of personality and awareness on a deeper level between both companies. You will not be treated like a number, nor will they be treated like a service. Rather, you both can come to terms on a personal level, and respect each other’s responsibilities as individuals.
It’s Nice to Have a Friend by Your Side, When Going up against the IRS
Let’s face it, going up against the IRS is no one’s day dream, unless you are an astound CPA who enjoys a challenge. But most businesses, and individuals in general hate having to resolve issues with the IRS. That’s why having a payroll agency next to your office where you can vent your frustrations, can help clarify matters and issues sooner than expected. Especially when you are there, providing your payroll agents all the information they need to help you resolve the IRS issues compounded against you.
If you also have built that positive personal relationship with the payroll service agency near your office, I am sure it can help result in the payroll agency fighting extra hard to help a friend against the IRS (in legal ways).
You Get to See What You Are Paying For
Let’s say you are just starting to invest into a payroll service company. If the company you have invested in is near your business’s location, it can help you stay on top of their work. You shouldn’t be leaning over their shoulders 24/7, but, making sure you get what you paid for is ideal to any consumer. It’s nice to just make sure the service company is doing their job by popping your head into their payroll service office once in a while.
You Can Question the Services Being Offered
Nothing is more infuriating than knowing that you paid for a service, and ended up not using all of its feature unbeknownst to your knowledge. It’s one thing to know all the features of a service, but subsequently choose not to use them. It’s another thing to invest into a service, and not knowing what all the other features are, or how to use them.
Remember how I said you should pop into your payroll service office once in a while to check up on their work? This would be also, another good reason as to why you would want to show up to their office unannounced. If you have questions about services and payments, ask them. You are paying them for their services anyways.
