Churches want to focus on their ministry. Unfortunately there are necessities to running a church that must get done. There’s the payroll, paperwork, taxes, and the list goes on. So a church has to make a decision: Am I going to try and handle this in-house myself, or hire someone, or outsource to a payroll provider? Here is a list of Benefits of Outsourcing Church Payroll.
In large churches, an entire human resources (HR) department navigates the complex minefield of federal and state labor laws. Most small churches think of HR as an afterthought, or HR responsibilities like hiring, benefits, compliance, and payroll falls to a few people who aren’t properly trained. This can be a pricey mistake. Laws concerning overtime, unlawful termination, and equal rights are just a few areas that trip up churches, big and small, all the time.
