Payroll is a non-value added process for tech startup founders – but an important and essential one.

According to studies, 

  • 40% of tech startup founders say bookkeeping and taxes are the worst part of owning a business and the most time-consuming 
  • Tech startup founders nearly spend 11.67 average hours every month in processing payroll 
  • A majority of tech startups in India have incurred huge costs for payroll compliance over the past 5 years

If you are a tech startup founder or a small business owner, you must have experienced issues while processing payroll. 

Old-school payroll methods used by founders

While there are multiple ways of executing payroll, most of them are costly, time-consuming, and error prone. 

Manual payroll processing 

Over 37% of payroll errors occur due to manual data entry. 

As a startup, you may use Excel spreadsheets to make payroll calculations. But, making elaborate calculations manually is tedious, lengthy, and erroneous. And these mistakes can lead to expensive problems.


6.1% of manual errors happen because of outsourcing payroll. Consequently, you have very little visibility of your payroll process. 

So, if you are the kind of founder who wants to oversee your operations and execute them on your own, payroll automation is your way to go.
