How Much Does It Cost To Outsource Payroll?


One of the questions we get most often from companies is: How much does it cost to outsource payroll? The short answer? It’s surprisingly affordable. As you can see, there are many factors that can impact the total cost of payroll processing. While the general rule of thumb is that it will cost around RM150-RM250 per employee per year, your total price will be based on the scope of your engagement with your vendor. 

This is a relatively small price to pay compared to the risks of doing it yourself like errors, late payments, or compliance issues. In fact, with each pay run, you’re potentially costing your business more than what you’d pay for a provider. Outsourcing your payroll comes with a lot to think about. Start your journey by learning which companies we consider to be the best regional and national payroll providers.
