FAQ – Payroll Outsourcing

Accurate and on-time salary payment and Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) contribution is an important obligation required by law.  This always means tedious and time / effort consuming administrative work.  Besides, it often poses to businesses substantial distraction in resources and work focus.  We understand start-ups and small & medium enterprises (SME) are commonly constrained by administrative resources and a dynamic workforce.  Sustained statutory compliance for payroll processing is particularly challenging to them.  Outsourcing to professional payroll services providers is an excellent solution allowing companies to focus on core business.  At the same time, all routine or ad-hoc administrative works are well taken care of.  Such include compensation and MPF calculation and payroll/MPF administration concerning staff appointment & termination. Services may also cover statements/returns to the authorities and MPF trustees, and much more.

You should understand your internal HR resources such as the team’s strength versus size of your company’s workforce.  Also important is your HR staff’s practical experience and familiarity with local tax and labour laws.  Besides, you need to consider whether your company’s payroll contains sensitive information of individual staff.  It is possible that you prefer outside professionals rather than internal colleagues to handle your sensitive payroll.

Employees and employers have to make monthly contribution to MPF schemes as required by law.  This adds extra complication and administrative burden to payroll calculation with monthly MPF contribution and reporting. It becomes worse when, say, monthly salaries are worked out under a complex incentive structure.  Another example is when some qualified pension schemes co-exist with the company’s MPF scheme.
