PEO or Outsource Payroll

Do you have a PEO or outsource payroll? Under the PEO Arrangement, there is a co-employment relationship in which both the PEO and the Business Owner have an employment relationship with the employees. Contractually, the PEO and the Business Owner allocate and share many of the traditional employer responsibilities and liabilities. For example, the PEO assumes responsibilities and liability for employment related matters such as Payroll and Payroll Taxes, Employee Benefits, Human Resources Management, and Safety and Risk Management. As a result, the Business Owner can concentrate 100% on growing their Business.

Outsourcing is a contractual arrangement, absent an employment relationship, with a vendor (and its supervised personnel), for services, either on the customer’s premises or off-site at the vendor’s location, to perform a function or run a department that was previously staffed and supervised by the customer directly. Furthermore, examples include: Payroll Processing, Financial Auditing, Agent of Record Services, and Legal Services.

Today’s Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a “hybrid” of all of the honorable characteristics of the Staff Leasing Business Model. In addition, combine it with all of the efficiencies of the Outsourcing Business Model.
