In South Africa, payroll services are often associated with just more expenses. Such is especially true for the small business with fewer than ten employees. Small businesses often don’t have the resources to employ an HR person permanently and certainly cannot always afford to have a full time accountant onboard.
The dilemma is worsened by exuberant fees often asked by outsourcing companies. When one then considers whether to handle all the tasks, only outsourcing tax and then burning out because the alternatives are too expensive, the picture becomes even bleaker.

Fortunately there are companies such as OfficeOnCall that can take care of all the payroll issues for the small companies and at affordable prices. This allows the business owner the freedom to focus on profits and market infiltration rather than labour and HR issues. In addition, it frees up resources and at the end of the day also saves the company money regarding:
Labour Law Issues
Another dreaded area of small business management is that of compliance with all the statutory regulations regarding labour and payroll. With hardly enough time in the day to focus on marketing, administration, client service, product development and day to day running of the business, having to deal with various regulations may just become too much.
