Payroll outsourcing process reporting

Your organization


1. Reporting and time attendance


If you are using Visma’s web-based portal, the authorization of timesheets and travel expenses is done electronically.

The scrutiny of receipts against travel expenses is done by the customer, but we can check receipts as an extra service.

2. Recording data

We collect all payroll related details from the timesheets and travel expenses, and supplement these with other supporting documentation. The payroll is carefully checked and any unclear details are investigated. The customer then confirms.


3. Finalizing the payroll

The final payroll list is generated and uploaded to Visma's portal, MyVisma.

Six reasons to outsource your payroll


1. Improved efficiency

We strive to create minimal administration for the customer through constant improvements and use of effective systems and processes.

By leaving the payroll activities to Visma, your internal HR staff and management will free up time to focus on strategic thinking and development of your business.


2. Focus on your core business

Payroll is a specialist field that can be both costly and challenging to keep inside your organization. Outsourcing will allow you to focus on working strategically with HR and developing your core business.

3. Less vulnerable

With outsourcing, you do not have to worry about staff sickness, absence during holiday periods, or employee turnover.


4. Improved flexibility

Outsourcing improves agility, making it easy to scale the service up or down according to your needs.


5. Higher quality

All Visma's activities are designed for one thing – to deliver payroll services as efficiently and secure as possible.

As this is our core business, we invest in technology and processes, which enable us to deliver our services as efficiently as possible.

Your business will also benefit from our payroll experts’ experience and strategic advice.


6. More value

It may seem as if the hourly rate of a payroll consultant is higher than that of an in-house employee.

But when you take into account all other cost related issues, such as development and maintenance of software and IT, staying on top of new legislation and best practices, and the fixed costs of an in-house payroll organization, outsourcing comes out on top most of the time.
