Choosing the perfect payroll provider for your business is a crucial task.
If you’re frustrated with the service you’re currently receiving (and even if you’re not), there could be a much more viable and solvent option out there for you.
It goes without saying that you should pick a provider that is best for your business’ needs; one that uses a fully optimized and robust platform, with payroll automation. This eliminates painstakingly tedious manual work and the very real possibility of end-of-year audit disasters.
When Is the Best Time to Switch Payroll Providers?
The unanimous consensus on when to switch your payroll company is at the end of a quarter or better yet, at the end of the year.
This not only allows you to start the new fiscal year with an immaculate slate, but also provides a period when you do not need to transfer historical data from your previous organization to the present one.
December is undoubtly the best month to make the switch, but there is still the issue of how that switch will play out. Choosing the wrong, outdated provider could result in a messy situation.
How to Make a Smooth Transition
First, do your best to ensure that your final pay date resides with your old provider, and consequently, your first one of the year with your newly acquired one. Have all your basic info ready to hand over to your new provider, like your State and Federal ID details, and your bank account numbers and transfer info.
The Ultimate Solution
The most impactful factor in making a smooth switch is how sophisticated the new provider’s technological architecture is.
Even if you do everything right on your end regarding the changeover, a company with an outdated platform will inevitably result in headaches for you.
