We spoke to you last week about how much of a time pit processing the pay run is for salon owners. And you guys really heard us. We understand payroll is hard and a pain. But there are some really simple ways to fix that.

Here are our top reasons to outsource your payroll:

  1. Free up your time – We have said it before; we will say it again – payroll processing is a very time-consuming process. Outsourcing payroll can help to free up time to pursue more important activities that will create revenue and deliver better value to your business.
  2. Avoid Penalties – Did you know that 40% of small businesses pay an average penalty of $845 per year for late or incorrect filings and payments? That’s money that could be in your pocket instead. Don’t get it wrong, get HABA Payroll instead.
  3. Legislation – Most business owners and financial controllers don’t have the time to keep up with constantly changing legislation and regulations, particularly common under the Hair & Beauty Award. For instance, are you aware of the advanced leave provisions that were introduced late 2016? Or the bone marrow and blood donor leave entitlements proposed a fortnight ago to the Hair & Beauty Award? These changes can mean big time in your weekly payroll run; and if handled incorrectly, can mean big money out of your pocket.
  4. Technology – HABA has not only made the move to an electronic payroll system (reducing risks of underpayment claims) but is backed by cloud storage (meaning you never lose your files or records) and is remotely accessible – so you can check your payroll records on-the-go, no matter where you are in the world, and still be in complete control.
  5. Avoid pain – Manual payroll is a headache in the best case and a nightmare in the worst. Business owners who do choose to outsource payroll eliminate a constant source of pain and difficulty in their business, making the end of the week or fortnight easier.
  6. Have your own HR manager – HABA offers payroll outsourcing because we know this goes hand-in-hand with human resources and industrial relations matters, which are our speciality. As a HABA Member, you can ask any employment-related questions and obtain up to date, accurate, industry-specific information right away. It’s like having your own HR manager working for you in the business – without having to pay the salary.
  7. No lock-in Contracts – Don’t get locked into a lengthy contract that you don’t need. Unlike other payroll systems and providers, we won’t lock you into any unreasonable contracts so you can feel free and flexible with HABA Payroll. We do ask that you give us 4 weeks’ notice on termination, but that is just to make sure that we are on track with your payment cycle.
  8. Save money – running payroll can be an unnecessary financial burden, both in time it takes you to process the pay run and in working with other, expensive systems. Let HABA Payroll provide an easy solution to this problem with its affordable and efficient payroll services, starting from $4.40 per employee.
