Why a Quarter-End Payroll Switch Is Ideal for Your Business


The end of the quarter is coming up, which means, as a business owner, you're preparing to submit a quarterly payroll report, adding up all of your employee wages and taxes paid along with the amount of any employment tax rates. Since you're gathering all of that information, did you know it's also an ideal time to consider switching your payroll software (or starting with a payroll software for the first time if you're currently running payroll in-house)? There are plenty of reasons why you might be unsatisfied with your payroll, but you're in luck — a quarter end payroll switch is surprisingly easy. Let's explore the benefits!

Why Is a Quarter End Switch Necessary?

While you're at perfect liberty to switch payroll providers whenever you choose, we love to try and make things easier on you. As the end of the quarter comes to a close and you're preparing all of the information to submit a quarterly report, it's simply a convenient time to make that payroll switch you've been thinking about. 

Whether you're already outsourcing to a payroll provider or if you're a business looking into outsourcing options, it's still a beneficial time to take advantage of changing to a different payroll company. The most common reasons businesses choose to switch to a different payroll service are:

1. They want to save more time.

2. They need more convenience and flexibility.

3. Their current provider is too expensive.

Are any of these true for your business? If so, a payroll switch could be something you want to consider taking advantage of. We get it, sometimes things aren't always as easy as we'd like — but at TransNational Payments we try to make this process as painless as possible, especially with our free payroll setup we offer.
