Procrastination is something which we can all be guilty of in different areas of our lives. Whether it’s making a phone call or getting new tyres for your car, we can all fall prey to putting things off or leaving things to the last minute. “Procrastination is the thief of time” is a phrase from a 1742 poem that is still very relevant today. And this saying couldn’t be more true when it comes to switching payroll software provider. We usually procrastinate tasks that we perceive to be difficult or unpleasant and it is understandable that you may feel this way about trying a new payroll software. However, this doesn’t need to be the case.
You may have been thinking about switching your payroll provider for some years now. You’ve been delayed, perhaps because, in previous years you were busy and didn’t get around to doing it. Before you knew it, the new tax year was looming, and you decided it’s easier to just stay put with your old provider. This is a common mistake often made by payroll processers and one that can turn into a vicious circle that goes on for years. Meanwhile, you may be wasting time and money by using a subpar payroll software.
NOW is the time to do your research and make the important decision as to which software is best suited to your needs. When it comes to switching your payroll provider, the worst thing you can do is to leave it until the last minute. The beginning of the new tax year is of course the most common time people switch, mainly because they want to get their money’s worth from their previous software subscription, and they don’t want to have to pay for a whole new subscription that will only be used for a few months. However, waiting until then to make your decision is not advisable. If you wait until December, you are not leaving yourself enough time and chances are you’ll end up putting it off for another year.
Another worry for payroll processors is moving the payroll data from one software to the other. However, the new tax year will be the busiest time of the year for payroll software providers’ migration and customer support teams. By deciding to move now, you can avoid the rush, and will also receive extensive support in migrating your payroll data.
