Benefits Of Outsourcing Your Payroll To Relin Consultants

Cost savings

Rather than spending on hiring one or a few full-time employees to manage the HR function, including payroll processing. You can instead engage our firm to manage all the payroll-related matters. Our team has extensive experience and the capability to process up to a headcount of 300 employees for each company. We provide payroll software for all our clients hence eliminating the need for our clients to purchase their software.


Payroll is one of the most essential processes in any organization, yet a small group of people carries it out; if an unforeseen incident affects the small group of people, the payroll processes may be disrupted. Such contingencies would be eliminated if your payroll operation was outsourced.

Relin Consultants’ payroll team works in two separate locations, and our client’s data are stored in the cloud. Hence if there is any disaster, our team can still process your payroll on time.
