Payroll outsourcing refers to the usage of third-party sources and organizations to manage administrative and compliance operations. It involves maintaining employee records, calculating salaries and wages, computing and adding bonuses, generating payroll-related reports, and complying with taxation laws applicable in different countries. It also assists organizations in saving costs and time, and reducing the need for in-house trained payroll staff, and purchasing and maintaining appropriate software packages. Besides this, it provides organizations dealing internationally with the advantage of staying updated with foreign tax legislation and avoiding any potential penalties.

Due to the expanding geographical reach of organizations, there is a rise in the demand for time-saving and cost-effective measures, such as payroll outsourcing, that allow the management to focus on core issues and run the business smoothly. Moreover, the incorporation of digitized services, such as business analytics, big data and the cloud, is escalating the demand for payroll outsourcing across the globe. Furthermore, the rising trend of multi-country payroll outsourcing (MCPO), bundling payroll services and process automation is further contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the leading players are providing hybrid payroll solutions that enable companies to decide upon customized payroll sub-services as per the requirement to avoid compromising confidential data. Additionally, on account of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the consequent shift toward remote work by a number of organizations, market players are offering different ways to manage payroll operations online.
