Online Payroll – A Simple & Cost Effective Small Business Solution
By Simon Bell, Product Manager at Sage
You’ve taken the plunge and you’ve started your own business. Like most successful entrepreneurs at some point you are going to reach the stage where either there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all you have undertaken to do but not delivering is not an option or worse potentially damaging to the reputation of your fledgling business. You need help and that means hiring someone, becoming an employer.
Whilst this is no doubt very exciting, as it demonstrates that your business is growing, it is also the cause of perhaps more concerns for you with questions around how you find and hire the right people, how to get them up to speed quickly and begin contributing to your business and perhaps most importantly how to ensure that you are paying your employees correctly, legally and that your tax affairs are in order with Revenue. There is quite a lot to consider, PAYE, PRSI, USC, P35s the acronyms go on and on and you want to be sure that you are 100% compliant every step of the way.
Time to assess your options. You need the help with your business but you don’t need hassle and perhaps don’t have the necessary payroll expertise. You could outsource your payroll to an accountant or payroll bureau or you could invest in the payroll software and learn to do it yourself. The problem is if you are spending time learning how to setup and manage your new payroll software you are not spending it on the business, which is why you are looking to bring someone in in the first place. How cost effective is it realistically to use a third party to run your payroll and how involved would you need to be.
How about the other option?
Sage One Payroll is our Online Payroll solution for small businesses and their owners or managers. It was created with simplicity at its core and is designed for use by users with no previous payroll knowledge with the input of those specific types of users. As an online payroll solution for small business, Sage One Payroll is designed for the novice user with step by step guides, wizards and reminders to ensure that you are completing your pay runs, quickly and correctly each time.

Sage One Payroll is a cost effective online payroll solution starting at just €6 per month for up to 5 employees (with simple options to upgrade to either 10 or 15 employee versions when your business needs to). Even better Sage One Payroll integrates seamlessly with our Sage One Accounts solution meaning you can simply process your payroll and it is entered into your accounts data meaning no need to enter this data into accounts after you’ve finished.
