Freelancers are increasingly outsourcing all payroll tasks to payroll service providers like us. Especially in the start-up phase, this is a particularly profitable approach for them.
During the lifetime of a company, the weighting of the individual tasks changes constantly. In the beginning, the acquisition of customers and orders dominates the daily routine. All other tasks, especially payroll administration, take a back seat. This can be problematic, because payroll administration is subject to strict legal requirements and cannot be completed in a short time between two meetings. On the contrary, it requires comprehensive expertise. Something that start-ups often do not have in this particular area. Logically, their strength and potential lies elsewhere.
Hardly any newly founded company, let alone a freelancer, brings with it an HR department that can handle all the tasks at hand with aplomb. This is also logical, but by no means a bad thing. It only becomes difficult if the payroll administration is not set up professionally from the beginning. For example, with a suitable payroll service provider. There are at least seven advantages to such cooperation.
External payrolling thus indeed allows freelancers to handle their client assignments in a legally compliant manner and to be correctly insured. It allows them to be considered employees of a payrolling company or agency. The advantage of this is that social security contributions (such as AHV) are paid by the payrolling company and thus the freelancer's self-employment is not called into question. In addition, our payrolling offers the compelling advantage that wages are paid promptly and not only when the client has paid.
All in all, outsourcing your payroll administration is an efficient and reliable solution for you as a freelancer. You can relax and concentrate on your core business, knowing that even the complex tasks outside your core business interests are in the hands of experienced specialists.
