Payroll administration is one of the most common aspects of a business being outsourced, given its technical complexities, with reference to employing staff at substantial cost, having to be knowledgeable on the various legislative and contractual aspects concerning remuneration, tax and social benefit deductions, and reporting to designated authorities such as SARS and the Department of Labour (UIF) etc.
It is imperative for the payment of staff to be effected correctly and timeously, given debit orders and other financial obligations to be met timeously, and for the motivation and morale of staff.
Paradigm Corporate Services uses state of the art technology solutions to ensure efficient and timeous service delivery to its clients.
The staff complement of clients in respect of whom payroll services are rendered are not based only in South Africa, but also in other countries in Africa.
This service entails unlimited access for the client to a group of legal specialists to assist the client with telephonic advice as and when required concerning disciplinary action and poor work performance issues, and to assist the client with the drafting of charges, notices to attend disciplinary hearings, suspension notices and all documents related to procedural requirements.
