This service is designed to relieve your business of the repetitive and resource-consuming task of payroll administration.

We do all the routine work associated with payroll administration on your behalf. It has been proven worldwide that outsourcing this task brings about considerable benefits.

Payroll administration is a highly important activity in any business. If you consider, however, that it is not a core business function and that it consumes valuable time and resources that could be used more productively on pursuing actual business objectives, it makes sense to think about outsourcing this task.

3.2 Corporate Governance

View More
Most business owners and their employees have little experience in the administration of company secretarial records and it pays to outsource this function.

We have a dedicated team with specialist experience who are able to handle virtually any task relating to company secretarial duties and can provide exceptional service at affordable prices.

Proper administration of company secretarial activities is non-negotiable for any company or close corporation, especially considering the 'new' Companies Act that came into effect during 2011. There are many pitfalls if one does not keep abreast of the ever-changing environment that businesses find themselves in and it could have dramatic consequences for your business if the secretarial administration is not up to date.

Because most business owners and their employees have very little experience in the administration of company secretarial records, it is a logical step for companies to outsource this function to someone that has extensive experience as well as the infrastructure, to manage this area of their business successfully.
