  14. 14. Q&A’S  You say that it costs up to 50% in overhead to maintain staff. Would you please explain? Please just add up the costs of people & their time involved in administering people in your business. Include hour, accountants, bookkeepers - who do the: payroll; salary packaging; FBT administration; expense claim administration; candidate, advertising sourcing, vetting of resumes and interviewing; and then lawyers involving disputes. Then you add the management time in dealing with staff issues and administrative matters. Then on top you add the overhead & time of that support staff and you should arrive at a similar substantial number.  How can you do it so cost effectively? This is our business, this is what freespirit specialises in. Plus we have a proven streamlined paperless systems and a professional team 100% dedicated in getting the job done.  Won't I Lose Control of My Business? We say quite the reverse. By freeing up management’s time from the day to day administrative tasks it gives them more time to work on the business, rather than just in the business. It allows more resources to be devoted to the core of the business that produces the value and the income, by being able to hit the accelerator to the business it provides more power to the management engine.  Won't I Lose Control of My Staff? No. freespirit acts on your instructions. freespirit employee the staff under our ABN but you are responsible for the ultimate decision on all hiring and firings! freespirit just do the paperwork. This gives you more time to interact personally and to performance manage the staff. This added management contact is perceived as showing interest and again helps reduce staff turnover.
  15. 15. Payment Terms  What are your Payment Terms? Payment Terms are immediate as it is payroll. However if you do need some accommodation up to a maximum of 28 days, you need to tell us at the beginning so it can be planned and you can complete a credit application. Though we always require sufficient payment to cover net pay, superannuation and our fee. For every 14 days or part thereof, any of your invoices remain outstanding, you are charged 1% plus GST of your invoices outstanding amount including GST. At the end of your Pay Cycle this is calculated on the outstanding amounts on your Debtors Statement, invoiced and direct debited to your bank account. This amount must be paid.
  16. 16. Note A PwC Study has shown that the total cost of ownership of payroll services is reduced significantly, if the payroll service is outsourced. Resulting in a saving of up to 50% of their TCO • Integrating time & attendance with payroll leads to a cost efficiency of 14%. • Organizations using In-house solutions or hosted software solutions spend on average 18% more administrating these functions than organizations who outsource. • Organizations administering these functions in-house with solutions from multiple vendors, spend an average 18% more, then those using only one in-house solution. • Organizations outsourcing these functions to multiple vendors spend an average of 32% more than those outsourcing to only one vendor. • Providing payroll & HR self-service functionality to employees can result in a 50% lower TCO of workforce administration.

The other hidden costs includes direct & indirect labour costs system maintenance costs. Source: PwC & ADP TCO study, January 2011
