You’re in control

Preparing and processing payroll in-house gives you complete control over one of your organization’s most important jobs – paying your employees. From last-minute cheques to running trial payrolls for accuracy – an in-house self-service model gives you and your team the autonomy and flexibility to run payroll your way.
Save Time

Give yourself more time

With in-house, you get up to 6 more days to finalize payroll each cycle.

In payroll, timing is everything. Some providers require you to have your payroll wrapped up four days in advance, followed by your payment two days in advance. This gives you less time to get your work done every cycle, which is great for your provider but not convenient for you.

Control your cash flow

Outsourced payroll providers make hundreds of millions on interest from your early payroll deposits.
The interest attached to your cash flow is valuable. When an outsourced payroll provider requires you to submit your remittances days in advance, they profit. When you outsource your remittances, you forego interest income on the amount of your payroll until your employees get paid. Your money ends up in your payroll provider’s pocket. This also ties up company funds that could be deployed elsewhere.

No extra fees
Say goodbye to extra fees

You’re likely paying $500 - $2500 to outsourced payroll providers for errors.

Mistakes happen. Let’s say you need to make an adjustment because you missed a new employee’s pay period. With an outsourced provider, it’s typically too late to make a change, which means paying extra fees to do an off-cycle pay run. With Avanti’s in-house payroll solution, you can run off-cycle pays when you need to at no extra charge, as long as your payment is made by the due date defined by CRA.

Because Avanti is so efficient at processing payroll, our payroll administrators don’t have to do a whole bunch of data entry anymore. They’re actually able to run the payroll and do some analysis, instead of just running to get it out the door.

Manager of Finance & Accounting Systems for Glacier Media
I’ve used a lot of Canadian Payroll systems. By far, Avanti has the best features and the most flexibility. The fact that Avanti upgrades the system based on recommendations from their client, it’s incredible. Other Payroll software companies just don’t do that.
