Fully Managed Payroll FAQs

Is fully managed or part-managed payroll outsourcing better for me?

Payroll isn’t universally sized, meaning that the solution will need to uniquely answer to your business size and goals. Our experts can help guide your payroll questions. Determining between the two should feel right for your business, and answer to the pressures uniquely faced by it.

How long does it take to setup?

After initial setup, which can require certain information about your business, you save precious time in the future. We assign a dedicated manager to your case and business, who will nurture the service you receive and ensure its smooth facilitation, keeping it fully managed.

Will changing providers disrupt my business?

Transitioning to a new provider like IRIS FMP is painless. At IRIS FMP we’ve tailored our services to help this switch feel invisible – we only need a complete requirements capture and then we can begin building a solution around your business.

How much control will I have?

The benefit of a fully managed payroll offering is that your business can transition away from busy admin tasks– we aim to take the pain out of payroll. Yet, with a smoother, outsourced payroll provision, your business can access essential data and reporting at your convenience. Through IRIS FMP, you will always have the control to shape how payroll works for your business.

How much does fully managed payroll cost?

There is no universal law of cost surrounding payroll provision – therefore, payroll can scale up to your budget and goals, and ultimately be shaped by your business. There’s an initial fee and any other costs will be inventoried into a payslip fee. Yet, it’s worth focusing on how payroll can adapt to your business needs.

Which businesses qualify for fully managed payroll?

Any business, and likewise any industry, can qualify for a fully managed payroll service. It’s usually nominated by businesses who want to focus on their core offering and leave payroll in expert hands. It helps to eliminate costly overheads and save time too.
